A little rain fell. The water cleared and cooled the air. It also left little droplets on the leaves that weren’t calling it quits for autumn. I generally have problems with rain drops. I cannot keep them sharp. I got lucky. That, or I picked the proper focal length for this kind of work. It’s […]


Never fails. Just when I said that the sky was clear, blue and bright, this happens. It didn’t last long. The clouds just blew in another cold front. I could wear long pants all day, yesterday. That’s something. I think. I’ve been doing some cogitating. I’m having trouble moving forward creatively. I read something a […]


Saturday. The week ends quietly with a simple study of light and color. It’s something that somebody who claims to be a photographer should understand. Lately, on the socials, I’ve seen a lot of pictures that make me wonder. For every good photograph there seem to be three or four pictures that tell me that […]


Remnants. Left overs of the summer just past. Leaves, grass, pine droppings. A lot of nature on a forest floor. Or, what passes for a forest in the city. Of course, this isn’t all one picture.

It comes when it comes. Inspiration. I was talking with a friend a couple of nights ago when she said that inspiration is everywhere. I know that. But, I forgot that I did. So. Here’s the best possible example. We had a big day out. We went places. Well, two places. The gasoline store and […]


It’s a funny thing. A couple people told me to stay safe during Hurricane Delta even though I said it was nowhere near us. I suppose most people don’t really understand Louisiana’s geography. New Orleans is about 300 miles east of Lake Charles, where a hurricane will hit for the third time in about two […]


Color. Pure color. Colors of Autumn. Changing leaves. Faded greens. Falling leaves. Eventually, bare trees. That’s the season. Fall. That’s where we are today. This photograph might be a Sunday picture. But, I like it a lot and wanted you to see it. Today. I’ll get into it’s construction in the right hand column. It’s […]
