Sometimes it’s all light and color with just a hint of subject matter. Sometimes it’s more. This picture straddles both, leaning to the previous. It’s sort of musical. That’s just as well. It’s been a musical sort of day. The musicians in my life have been playing sort of tag with me and I with […]


It’s a funny thing. A couple people told me to stay safe during Hurricane Delta even though I said it was nowhere near us. I suppose most people don’t really understand Louisiana’s geography. New Orleans is about 300 miles east of Lake Charles, where a hurricane will hit for the third time in about two […]


Reflections. An image found within a photograph. That’s what you are looking at. An accidental picture. I didn’t see it. The dog didn’t see it. I made another reflection picture. I stooped down to do that. When I stood up I saw this one. Really, part of this one. I had to reposition myself so […]


Nothing but problems. It seems to me that WordPress does not like Safari. It would rather play with Chrome, except that using a Mac causes issues with Chrome. Why can’t they all play nice? It took a good 20 minutes just to get to this page. I still don’t know how to reduce the size […]


My eyes. I see things that others might not. I think this is the part of photography that can’t be taught. This is where talent comes into play. It’s not artistic talent. It’s not like being able to paint. Or, play music. That’s talent. Seeing is something else entirely. It’s something given to those of […]


Popsicle Color. I told you about this yesterday. I used the baby Leica to make the picture so I had to develop it in the normal way. That’s why you are seeing it a day later. There is something really strange about this series of pictures. This is what the sky looked like to my […]


Hot. Very hot. This picture says and feels hot. We have hit that seasonal time when the temperature is 90 degrees at midnight. Walk in the morning because that’s the coolest time. The thermometer might have dropped as far as 85 degrees. It’s the big chill. We’ve put off doing any errands, even though the […]


Driving. Out on Highway 61. That’s where Abraham and God a conversation. That’s what Bob Dylan said. Apparently, God wasn’t messing around. So Abraham did what he was told. Sometimes there are little miracles when you least expect them. On Saturday, Sophie Rose wasn’t doing so good. I was afraid I might lose her. It […]


It began this way. It began with a sunny, pleasant day. The kind we, in the swamp, have in mid-April. We are a little lucky. Normally by this time summer appears, which means six months of heat, humidity and rain. The all seeing dog seems to be feeling better. We took two longish walks and […]
