Farther Along & Further In


There are a few flowers still blooming and growing. I came across the remainders of a little Camellia. Wow, I thought. A possible picture. So I clicked the button a couple of times. I continued on. I felt lucky. You know, I’m not seeing pictures all that well. In fact, I might not be seeingContinue reading “Farther Along & Further In”

You Got Gold


Light. There would be no photography without it. After all, we know that photography means painting or writing with light. In many ways, this picture is the essence of it. The bushes are wet, the sunlight found the water droplets and this is what we have. I’m sorry to say that even though I compressedContinue reading “You Got Gold”

The Age of Decadence


Decadence. I’m reading a rather long op-ed piece by The New York Times’ Ross Douthat. It is a take out of his upcoming book called, “The Decadent Society.” The name is not what you are thinking. He quotes Jacques Barzun, who says, “The forms of art as of life seem exhausted, the stages of developmentContinue reading “The Age of Decadence”

Thinking About The Future


The future. Not so far in the future. Maybe just up to Mardi Gras parade time. Anything more would be wasted because as a not-so-wise boxer once said, “You can make all the plans that you want, but once you get punched in the face all the plans go out the window.” That’ll happen withContinue reading “Thinking About The Future”

In The Morning


In the morning. When you rise. Do you think of me? From an old Crosby, Stills and Nash song. Without Young. The band that will never play together. That’s a long story. Maybe I’ll tell it some day. At least, as I know it. Let’s just say that there are too many old resentments andContinue reading “In The Morning”

Looks Like


A Sunday picture. A bright spring like picture to help your day. Something colorful. Something almost playful. Something to make you smile. Or, groan. Spring on a winter’s day. I have a blogging buddy. She doesn’t  post much anymore. She mostly posts on Facebook and on Instagram. She moved from Northwest Louisiana to Iowa. SheContinue reading “Looks Like”

Heat


This isn’t what you think. This about New Orleans.  This is about the New Orleans that makes national news. This is about the city in the throes of summer. This is about murder. Mayhem. Mass shootings. Rolling shootings. This is about at least 11 people shot, leaving three dead. This is about the first shootingContinue reading “Heat”

Mostly Red


On a late afternoon walk. I saw the backlight on this group of leaves and I couldn’t resist. Could you? Yes. It took some work in post production to help it be the picture that I saw in my mind’s eye. But, it was straight, normal work. I darkened the over all image, added contrastContinue reading “Mostly Red”
