Bold color. That’s what I promised you and that’s what you’ll get. Today is day three of our thirty day pause. Luckily, there is so much to do around this place, so much to read, so much to watch and so much organizing of my archives that I doubt anybody will get bored. Eventually, we’ll […]


Night walk. I like working at night. I made a career of it. This picture wasn’t made very late at night, because the dog who sees stuff wanted to go out at just around dusk. I don’t mind that, but with our broken streets and sidewalks I prefer not to walk in the dead of […]


So pretty. So pink. Yesterday’s sunset was stellar. The sun was hidden by drifting clouds. And, then it wasn’t. Just then. Right then, the Japonica (Japanese Magnolia) trees were lighted by wonderful late afternoon golden light. I was lucky. Ten minutes either way and I wouldn’t have seen this little bit of prettiness.

What a day can change. Two days ago, the sky was muddy gray. There was rain in the air. It was, in a word, yucky. Then came yesterday. Wowzer! Beautiful cold air. The sky turned blue.

Getting close. Close enough to see the details. The shape. The various shades of color. Color. Call this what you want. Is it pink? Is it magenta? Is it something else? If you are trying to match color, as I used to do on a big commercial printing press, it matters. If you aren’t, enjoy […]


Sunday. Memorial Sunday. In New Orleans, today is the day we memorialize our war dead. The guys who gave their fullest. The guys who never made it home. This is their day. We have a ceremony. Their graves are covered with little American flags. There are speeches. We ring the bell. We pay them the […]


A little Friday art. Pure art. The picture is as I saw it. Very little post production on this one. It’s meant to be soft and gentle. It’s meant to be a break from real life. A little peace. A little quiet. I could stop right here and wish you happy Friday. You know me. […]


Spring’s rebirth. A seasonal cycle. Now you see it. Now you don’t. We are at a seasonal point that you can’t help but see it. If you look at Facebook, the keeper of all infinity, your pages will start filling up with spring flower pictures. It starts around now and lasts for a while as […]
