Night time, not in the switching yard. Things change at night. Things look a little mysterious. Things look a little spooky. And, night photography can hide a multitude of sins. I wasn’t hiding anything this time. It was mostly just timing because guess who wanted to go for a walk at night time. We normally […]


Driving. Motion. Movement. The combination of others moving and my own motion helped to create some kind of impressionistic art. And, a lot of Ws. I reckon that the Ws were created by NOLA’s potholed streets. Hit a hole and down the car goes. So too, with the other cars around me.  Up. Down. Up. […]


All motion. For years I made a career out of pictures like this one. Motion. Movement. Energy. It wasn’t hard to do. About 1/4 second at f/5.6 and I’d make a picture likes this one.

Brand new. This picture. I’m late today because I wanted to make a new picture on one of our walks. I’m not really out of new work. It’s just that nothing in my new files moves me. Another day. A new look. A change in thinking. Which brings me to this. We began Mardi Gras […]
