Color. Pure color. That’s what this picture is to me. There are shapes. There are dead flowers. That’s just about it for subject matter. Most of the image is created out of color. For color. By color. No. I’m not color. The color seemed to build upon itself. Color begat color. That’s my thinking for […]


” Sugar Magnolia, blossoms blooming Heads all empty and I don’t care Saw my baby down by the riverside Knew she’s have to come up soon for air We can have high times if you’ll abide We can discover the wonders of nature Rolling in the rushes down by the riverside She’s got everything delightful […]


On the edge. It seems that all the president’s men are clamoring to open up the country.  They are hoping for business as usual. I’m not. I think we can be better in just about every way. I believe that even before CoVid-19 most of our systems are broken. The virus just provided clarity. I […]


Promise kept. I said that I would experiment with Mardi Gras pictures rather than publish images that are documentary in nature. That turned out to be harder than I thought.

I wasn’t hiding anything this time. It was mostly just timing because guess who wanted to go for a walk at night time. We normally […]


Minimalist. Bare trees of winter with a little help. I’ve been photographing bare trees for a long while now. At a certain point they all start looking the same. I suppose if you work in an area long enough you come to point where everything looks about the same. That’s one reason that I have […]


A dream? Or, a nightmare? Is it real? Or, something created out of nothing? I had a sort of half awake dream a couple of nights ago. I had a little trouble falling asleep. When I finally did, I had a kind of dream almost immediately.  Or, I thought that I did. There was someone […]


A little experiment. I was building my new and improved website and I was uploading a lot of pictures. That took some time. To help pass it, I started playing with older pictures. You might not recognize it, but you’ve seen this picture in the past, when it was bright magenta. I started in one […]
