As colorful as possible. A Facebook and Instagram friend is going to be sure that I’m trolling her with this picture. I’m not. But, she doesn’t know me that well. She lives in California in the hills way up above Malibu. She’s a pretty good photographer so I followed her on Instagram. She followed back. […]


The world gone wrong. “One of the bloggers that I read posted a funny meme. It said something along the lines of, “2020 sounded so futuristic. Today, I traded a handkerchief for a carrot.” Besides the huge irony, those words struck me as being one of the funniest things that I’d read recently. There’s always […]


Almost pure art. That’s what this picture evolved into from almost nothing. I started with a picture of magenta flowers on a blue handicapped parking sign. I went sort of crazy. I kept going until I arrived at this picture. I have no idea what it means. I seem to be stuck in space, so […]

It must have been the heat. That’s why I got crazy. And, made this picture. It’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that. It starts with a deck umbrella and goes on from there. I know. Find the umbrella. I added a couple of layers to this one. Layering, refining, rinsing […]


It happened again. I got a little bored last night so I started playing with another human being in post production. This time, it was a Mardi Gras Indian Wildman who I photographed on the Westbank for their Super Sunday. As I recall, it was a busy Sunday. There were two second lines on the […]


I wanted to play. So. I did. I wanted to see just how some of my new approaches to layering would work on a human being. The only place I’ve used them is on nature pictures. After poking around on my admittedly limited smart phone archive I found a portrait of a Zulu Tramp. I […]
