Dirty Filthy Snow

Snow gets plows and scraped from our streets then piled onto dump trucks. Where does it go?

No Bunnies Were Harmed in the Shooting of this Photo

Rabbits are danged fast. You practically have to walk with the camera glued to your face and hope for the best.

Is It Okay to be Disappointed?

When you sleep and dream of spring, is it okay to be disappointed to wake up to see snow?

"Sure." he said.

The Patient Chef

Not a self-portrait. I think he has eaten a few too many desserts.

Sometimes I Feel Like This Tree

I feel like, if you live long enough, when you encounter an obstacle you don't avoid it. You encompass it. The world's troubles become your troubles.

No Internet

Imagine driving around until I found an unsecured network. Am I a blog addict?

The Increasing Cost of Killing Yourself

It used to cost less to kill yourself. 79 cents for a pack of smokes in 1976.

Tell kids that now, they won't believe you.

February 14th and We All Know What That Is . . .

You are so right. It is the 113th anniversary of the original opening of The Importance of Being Earnest on stage in London.

The photograph is from a production I directed in 2004.

On the table is a little urn. That urn has been in every play that I have directed since 1989.

Check the guy. He competed wearing a suit.

Rum Jungle

Get your bikini ready. It is Bikini Blast Saturday. Perfect weather for a little atomic strutting.

But why is the CR Railway cop there? I am certain Jamie would not look good in a bikini.

Do the Dead Envy Us as Much as We Envy Them?

Marie has a very nice view of the valley. I look out my window and see a parking lot.

It was warm today and my camera asked to go for a walk.

Spirit of the West



The band Spirit of the West was in concert. OK, not their biggest concert but they had fun. There were about 15 people in the audience and I got to shoot photos.

The drummer didn't feel like lugging his drum kit in so he improvised on a stool. Yes, indeed, a stool with a microphone beside it.

The reason I have this shot here is because of the joke of the day. Someone said they should record a little bit of it. You know sample the music.

Yes, a stool sample.

At Night The Ghosts Come Out to Dance

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
We're gonna stimulate some action;
We're gonna get some satisfaction.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

My Story

My photo

I got my first camera, a Canon Ft QL, in 1974. It was supplemented by a Canon F1 in 1976 so that I could have a camera for black and white and one for colour. 

I still have those beauties but now they have eased into retirement. They relax on my shelf beside many other old beauties.

Now I use a Canon 5D MK II. How convenient to use one camera for both colour and black and white.
