The handprint was just there. As with most good pictures, the image found me. I didn’t find it. Actually, the all seeing dog walked back here and as I went in after her, I looked behind the tree. There it was. The handprint. It’s nothing odd. It’s paint. It’s weird that it was done behind […]


I’m not kidding. If you don’t keep the drains cleaned near your house, your street will flood. If your street floods, your house will flood. And, so will your car. You won’t be happy. Neither will your insurance agent. And, your insurance company will probably drop you for making a claim, leaving you to ask […]


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 […]


Summertime and the living is easy. In this picture, even nature is taking a break. Or, so it seems. It’s likely that either a storm or a big wind blew through, knocking leaves to the ground. If there is a pool nearby, into the water the leaves go. Somebody better than me has to come […]

It starts blooming in late spring and continues until early summer. Streets, cars, sidewalks are cover in tiny pink flowers. I like […]


It’s been a while. I can’t remember the last time I photographed yellow stripes in a parking lot. I’ve actually been watching this one for a while. I started with the striping effort that city contractors did a few months back. I knew it wouldn’t last long. Nature always seeks stasis. Mankind wins. Only for […]


It’s the light. Light is one of the most important component of every photograph. As well it should be, since the root word comes from the Greek for “writing with light.” Without light, found or created, you would make no picture. This picture is really all about the light, but it needed something to help […]


The end of summer. Little details. Seeing. Looking. Feeling. That’s all this picture really is about. I saw the leaf on an outdoor table. I framed it in a way that you could see the leaf and see the table. Then I went to work on it. That’s it. Old business. You’re gonna laugh. Remember […]
