Flower head-ever get all preened and looking great but get the sense you're still missing something? Swinging-sometimes it's nice to get lost in the shadows or drift between shadow and light. Cow vs. Cat-who's side are you on? Don't believe Gaylord Focker-you can't milk cats... Overworked-here's a bonus  for when you are working hard (for your ears). Roxy Music was one […]

Admittedly Talking Heads is one of my favorite bands of all time. I'm very happy that I got to see them twice and during the Fear of Music period. Mind is from that album.

    Circle game-it goes round and round and round and round and round and round... Strand-independence and speaking out are good for everybody from time to time... Shoe sky-for when it's not raining cats and dogs... Scatter-everyone needs beautiful purple petals scattered across their plain of vision from time to time to renew the soul. Heard a great […]

Someone told me today that the US people among other world citizens have been very generous in their giving to the people of Haiti. This is very encouraging because corporations and governments are usually much more complex and political with their giving. My hope is that most of these funds will reach and benefit the […]

The Intangible Cultural Heritage exhibition is a Cross-Straits(of Taiwan) venture with museum quality pieces from both southern Fujian, China and Taiwan. I was really impressed by the beauty and quality of most of the exhibits on display. Many(in fact most) of the exhibits permitted photographs to be taken. The quality of the Taiwanese aboriginal pieces was […]

Shadow art-this was shot as part of a series I di from an abandoned village. I don't know what caused the shadow mask but my eye was riveted when I saw this. I love the form and texture from the masked-door. I hope you do too. Alley duet-these two guys were hanging around checking us out […]

The journey seems clear and simple at first but begins to grow more complex as it moves along. Do you go straight or turn at the fork? Was that a fork? Did you bring a spoon just in case? 😀 Music: Hot Tuna-Hesitation Blues

Lately many of the photographers I admire are talking less about gear(yeah down with camera gear navel gazing) and more about the photographer and his vision. One thought I had on that the other day is: Focus. We can train a monkey to focus a camera and point it (poor monkeys always getting dragged into analogies […]
