Even though Sally never reached us, we still have summer storms. Yesterday the clouds sort of swirled around and brought us to scenes like the one you see above. We also had cooler temperatures with little humidity. Being outside felt great, The all seeing cocker spaniel liked it so much that we went on three […]


All in my head. I saw one scene. I photographed it. I saw another scene. I photographed it. When the time came I combined them. Oooh. Spooky. The picture does have an eerie feeling to it. Like something out of H.P. Lovecraft. Can’t you just see Cthulhu lurking back in those trees? Lovecraft wrote in […]


We seem to be headed backward. The governor closed all of the bars statewide. Actually, he just renewed their closings. If things don’t improve by cutting infections in a little more than half, we may revert to phase one. That’s the one where we stay home, eat too much and start day drinking. For some, […]

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 […]


Early spring. At least it was for us down here in the swamp. This picture was made in mid-February. Before the storm. Before the war. Before the killing era of the virus. It feels like years ago. Time may have become flexible and meaningless, but that translates into some kind long term distortion. For sure, […]
