Early in the morning, when the sun comes up. Yes. 7:04 am. That’s when the all seeing dog just had to go for a walk. I think she knew something that I didn’t. She used her ESP to know that the sky with this wonderfully backlighted cloud would be one of the first things that […]


More reflections. I’m really not a nature photographer. For many years I took no notice of it. Along came really good smart phones with cameras that could produce fairly high quality images. Phones are ubiquitous. We carry them everywhere. Like on dog walks. I started seeing things that interested me, so I started making pictures. […]


This is a pretty good way to start the work week. Don’tcha think? I’m pretty sure that if we start out on a positive note, the negative curve will flatten. Even a little helps. It’s important because a lot of people are really starting to feel it. Depression is in the air. That’s a pretty […]


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 […]

We have agreement. There is a big, huge storm headed this way and to the rest of the Southeast coming tomorrow. Supposedly, there will be punishing rains, high winds and the possibility of tornadoes. Some say. The storm will be warm. Others say the storm will be cool and will usher in another cold front. […]

The buds in this picture are right on time. They’ll grow, bloom and fully open towards the middle of carnival. I know this because I’m a creature of […]


A new day. A new year. A new decade. A new time to move forward on our plans. Whatever they may be. To right some wrongs. To fill in the potholes. And, to build something. To work in a positive manner. To grow, That’s 2020 for me. Happy New Year.
