Maybe this photograph is a little too radioactive. In my defense I cannot predict how WordPress will compress my already compressed .jpeg. Many times I over compensate. Don’t we all? Now that a bit of my life is getting back to some kind of normal feeling workflow I have to be very careful not to […]


So it was. It seems that my attitude has gotten worse towards opening schools too soon just because there’s a dangling carrot. They say follow the money and I did. Don’t fully open the schools and the state loses federal funding. I have a couple of words about it. Two words. I won’t write them […]


Soon. Soon, this wonderful deep green will change. We are in the wettest month of summer. It will stay green. In a few weeks, there will be more heat and less rain. By mid-August much of the green will fade into a sort of dull gray-green. You know what comes next. The lifecycle never changes. […]


Summertime. I know summer started a few weeks ago, but I wanted to show you a few pictures from my past. So, the real colors of summer start on July 1, in the age of the pandemic. The picture is pretty. It looks and feels like a rich, verdant summer lawn. With a golden leaf […]


Get out of the French Quarter, I tell visitors. I don’t mean quite as far out as the locations in these pictures. Going to some of these places would mean really long days for some of them. But, I live here. I can pick them off one by one when the light and the heat […]


My kind of picture. Something backlighted. Something different. Something about nature. I made this picture on a walk. Another dog walk. We are starting to work together again. She stops. I stop. I stop. She stops. Good timing. Good communication. The picture I’m doing this a little inside out. This is one of those photographs […]


Some things seem to be getting better. Don’t hold me to that. Georgia opened up all sorts of close contact businesses. Guess what? The state now has a surge of infections. Meanwhile, Jimmy Buffett’s management team thinks that it’s a good idea to restart his tour in early July. They had to cancel a couple […]


So far. So good The rate of infection is still growing, but there is a little light showing. Make no mistake, we can’t change our new normal. We still can’t gather. We should wear masks in public. We must wash our hands. More restaurants are closing temporarily rather trying to serve take away from the […]


What a day can change. Two days ago, the sky was muddy gray. There was rain in the air. It was, in a word, yucky. Then came yesterday. Wowzer! Beautiful cold air. The sky turned blue. The light was spectacular. It turned even better around dusk. Cotton candy. Cold. Like winter is supposed to be. […]
