A lot of photographers were working last night. The sky turned magic. Some of us photographed into the light. Some from the back of the scene. Others scrambled around looking for a subject to stick in front of the amazing light. I gave up and went to my usual haunt. I made this photograph. Looking […]


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 […]


Storm season. The soggy time of year. If we don’t get wet from above, we get wet from very moist air. You know, humidity. The number that drives the heat index into numbers unknown. The air temperature might be around 90 degrees, but with the humidity the heat index (feels like) temperature is about 102 […]


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.

Sunday. I spent most of yesterday thinking it was Friday. It was not. Since I wrote the word, “Sunday ,” I’m hopeful that it will stick in my head. Time is elastic. For some reason I spent all of yesterday sleeping. I managed to get Sophie Rose her meds, which was my crowning achievement. That […]


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. […]
