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 […]


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 compressed […]


Normal. Everybody can hardly wait to get back to normal. Everybody can hardly wait until some government official declares everything is open. Ain’t happening. At least not until we can distribute some solid testing, and create a vaccine. I’d add herd imunity to this, but that means a lot of people have to die. Normal. […]


Morning glory. Maybe I should be out and about in the morning. Pictures made then are usually a lot of fun. I usually have things to do then. Not the least of them being taking the all seeing dog on her morning walk. Maybe I can work around that. Here’s a morning picture now. This […]

On this winter solstice I thought it would be a good idea to close out autumn on a high note. Or, a golden note if you prefer. I made this picture a couple of days ago. Yeah. I know, I said the trees where bare. This is Southeastern Louisiana. We live in a semi-tropical and […]


Finally. Fall. A look at morning image made as the sun peeks through the golden leaves of Autumn. As a wise man once said, “If you want better pictures, stand in front of better stuff.” That is so true. I would add to that, have some patience. Wait for the light you want, no matter […]


Morning light. So bright. So pretty. I don’t photograph enough of it. Lately, in an attempt to beat the heat I drag myself out of bed early. Early enough to see low light. Golden light. In Southeastern Louisiana, and most of the south, the heat just won’t break. We are ten to fifteen degrees higher […]
