High on Photography…



the taste of the air shifted.


a hard wake-up during The Road Years.


the fall to earth.

a change of sand.

I’m shifting now from the desert to a similar landscape … the ocean. Here, I’m discovering the huge horizontal spaces both ‘scapes offer. There is a magnificent ever-changing pattern of sky, wave, surf, sand. And light. The various shapes take on obvious to subtle messaging, each unique. So, I’m thinking I’ll concentrate on this for a while as I consider my work.

millions of years and things just fall into place naturally. if only we had the time to be so patient.

time 2 leave. time 4 reflection.

the road down there leads to another road. don’t need much more in life.

into each life or epoch, some rain must fall.

heading toward the actual painted desert just up the road.

god, painting with a disregard for colors.

painted desert area.

a forest lying down on the job.

the Painted Desert sort of shares space with the Petrified Forest to the south, with its broken trees scattered around.

a solitary place.
