A few weeks ago, National Geographic announced the launch of their blog, Proof. Proof is a blog featuring one of their photographers, every day. The photographer will make a short video, or perhaps write a short article about a certain aspect of their photography work. I shoot 30,000 or more pictures per year and out of those, maybe 3 or 4 of those are keepers … but those 3 or 4, they’re pretty good! … You’re by yourself all the…

Por la calle – on the street Chris is on his “A year at 28 mm” project. I thought that I’d do something a lot less lofty. I’m going to spend at week at 17 mm, which is 34 mm equivalent, as my Olympus OM-D EM-5 has a 2.0 crop factor. Returning to Mexico in a few weeks. I’ve got an idea for a project, so to speak. I’ll be staying with a Mexican family, interestingly enough, on a street…

Yesterday evening, I was in the park about 90 minutes before sunset. I headed down to what I call the bottom of the park. It’s probably the lowest elevation in the park, perhaps some 20 – 30 feet lower than the highest point. It is on the eastern side of the park; here, it gets light streaming through pretty early, but is plunged into shadow early, as well. I knew that I didn’t have much time. I wanted to hike…

Saturday morning at 2:20 AM, I noticed a different ‘sound’ in the house. Quiet. Gone was the sound of the ear flowing out of the vents, the distant hum of the refrigerator motor, the sound of the movement of the blades of the ceiling fan. All that remained was the sound of crickets from the open window. I awoke to find the house in total darkness. The power had been interrupted. I was without electricity. No mind, it was early…

Last week when I was in Beaufort, SC, I awoke early Sunday morning with plans to return to the beach for more photos. That didn’t work out exactly. On the way down the only road to the beach, there was an accident. The police had the eastbound lanes blocked and weren’t letting anyone through. As I looked toward the east, I saw the sky starting to lighten. I’d been waiting for about 15 minutes and figured that I had waited…

This morning I was out in the park, doing a solo photo walk. I was enjoying the cool temps, somewhere in the mid or even lower 50 degree range, a nice breeze blowing. When the sun started coming up and shining through trees, a song popped in my head, Easy by Lionel Richie. I wanted to be easy like Sunday morning, too … and for a time, I was. It was a beautiful morning. Now that fall is here, there…
