Summertime. I know summer started a few weeks ago, but I wanted to show you a few pictures from my past. So, the real colors of summer start on July 1, in the age of the pandemic. The picture is pretty. It looks and feels like a rich, verdant summer lawn. With a golden leaf […]


Something simple. I’ve been reading a lot about the future by studying the past up to now. I’ve said repeatedly that I don’t want things to return to normal. I want them to be better. I like the idea of NCY closing a lot of streets to traffic so people can walk about freely, but […]


Morning glory. Maybe I should be out and about in the morning. Pictures made then are usually a lot of fun. I usually have things to do then. Not the least of them being taking the all seeing dog on her morning walk. Maybe I can work around that. Here’s a morning picture now. This […]


Just Dandy. See what I did there? Spring arrived. The time of allergies. The time of sneezing. Not from this little guy, but from Live Oaks. So much pollen. More pollen in years.

After a while, winter’s bare trees start to get boring. I set out to make something that is a little different. Something that adds 1+1 and makes the answer come out to three. I think that I did it. What I made is a huge image. One that takes up the entire top of Storyteller. […]


It’s about time. The rain poured out of the sky. The cold weather arrived. The leaves turned yellow. They began to fall. We finally had golden leaves in the swamp. I made this picture yesterday afternoon at about 4pm. There were a lot of leaves already on the ground. Looking up however, was a little […]


I don’t usually post a picture from the same take two days in a row unless it’s from an event like a second line. I sort of feel like I’m either cheating or not doing my work very well. But, an old friend of mine who is rarely on Facebook commented about yesterday’s work. She […]
