Choose Your Risk.

In Life Is Short by David203 Comments

A quick postcard from last night in Vernazza, Italy. Sometimes I flirt with crossing a line on this blog, a line that puts this blog squarely into the motivational genre; a genre I don’t generally care for. So you’ve been warned – this isn’t about photography, but life (and what is photography about if not life?) Last year I decided …

The Art of (Avoiding) Seduction

In Jessie and I, Pep Talks, Rants and Sermons, Travel by David63 Comments

I’m in Pensacola, Florida. This dune was in Galveston, Texas. I’m a few days behind on importing new images. Woke up early this morning and went walking with my camera, tripod and a thermos of coffee to shoot the lagoon in the morning mist. I was churning something over in my mind and it struck me as something that might …

I’ll have the Gator

In Jessie and I, Just For Fun, Travel by David54 Comments

Actual conversation in Louisiana, somewhere on the bayou. I’ve been thinking about it ever since and suspect- just maybe – the human brain doesn’t do well on the toxic combination of gator, frogs and deep-fry. I do love it here, and the people are great, but this one was too funny not to pass along. Me: I’m not from around …

Catching Up

In Uncategorized by David29 Comments

Monument Valley in Utah. Me and my shadow. It’s now been well over a month and 5500 miles since I left home. And while I’m conscious of how nervous I was when I left, I’m now well past that. I am, not to rub it in, deliriously content. As I write this I’m taking a break from some much needed …

Postcard from the Rio Grande

In Jessie and I, Travel by David26 Comments

Bridge over the Rio Grande, New Mexico, 2011. More and more I love twilight – it allows a greater focus on line and color, and – as in this case – nothing done in Lightroom except removing one dust spot with extreme prejudice. It took me 2 hours to find the frame I wanted and wait for the light, but …

Monument Valley, Utah

In Jessie and I, Thoughts & Theory, Travel by David30 Comments

Sitting in a quiet restaurant in Taos, New Mexico. We’ve got one more day before we need to be in Albuquerqe. Some of you have expressed anything from wonder to shock to consternation at how fast I’m travelling. It won’t always be this way. Sadly in order to do this trip at all I needed to front-load some of the …

Postcard from Death Valley

In Travel by David15 Comments

Racetrack Play, Death Valley. Just a quick hello from Las Vegas en route to Valley of Fire State Park. We spent a couple great days in Death Valley at the Racetrack Playa, which I’ve wanted to see for as long as I’ve known about the moving rocks. So much fun. Stayed late last night until the sun was well on …
