Thinking about what I saw. I saw a lot. When I returned to New Orleans after my time in New Mexico, I wanted to see what remained of the storm. After all, I’d been gone for almost five years. It turns out that there were some 60,000 buildings decaying. The new mayor managed to cut […]


Once upon a time. My Spotify playlist brought up a Mudcrutch song. Mudcrutch was the late Tom Petty’s first band. It had an Eagle in it, along with a few members of The Heartbreakers. It was a proto band. Petty decided to release an album of their music in 2006. It couldn’t have come at […]


I seem to be stuck in a western mode. That could be telling me something. Maybe a long road trip is due. But, it would be really long. I’m not going to take this trip many more times. So, I probably should make the best of it. And, just go. Of course, there are complications. […]


Dystopian. Looks like something from the end of the world. The picture is very cinematic. I’m very influenced visually by videos. I like trying to create a more cinematic feel in my own images. I suppose that’s what a lot of my experimentation has been about. And, continues to be. If I were younger — […]


This is not a sign of the times. It is a ghost sign. Hiding in plain site. A billboard for all to see. There was a plastic sign hung over it. It rotted through the ages. It fell away reveal the original work behind it. Knowing the neighborhood, it’ll likely remain this way for a […]

A man described by Bob Dylan as being the number one songwriter, mostly because Dylan sees himself as number zero. So far set apart that he’s some place else. It’s not […]


I once had a photojournalism professor called Joe B. Swan. He was one of the kindest people that I’ve ever meet. He was from West Texas. He taught at San Jose State University. He had a pronounced West Texas accent. He talked about “shaders and siluets.” That’s what you are looking at right now. Shadows and Silhouettes. […]


We’ve been watching a lot of The Walking Dead on Netflix. Does that help to explain the look and feel of this picture? I’m also been poking around my deep archives, trying to organize them in a way that everything can be found with a couple of keystrokes rather than by my own visual memory […]


Once upon a time, Storyteller had some structure to it. Sundays posts used to be for experimental pictures. Monday, and a day or two afterward, used to be for second line parades and so on. And, on, and, on. I moved away from that. Because. I’m supposed to be an artist. I’m supposed to be […]
