Fat man in the bathtub

And I’m sure he would have the blues if he was in this tub. Just another one of the many old bathtubs found throughout rural areas. This particular one has a spring emptying into it, most likely used for cattle at some point. I can’t show this photo without some Little Feat

People who need people

I have been looking at a lot of photography lately. And I mean a LOT!  It is my season to enter competitions and, in turn, reviewing the results of past competitions. The one thing I noticed is that judges really like photos with a human element. That’s really great considering I rarely have any people in my photographs. Probably because…

Man of few words

That’s me. Tonight at least. I shall resume later. For now a pretty picture.

Offficially the Osage orange tree, has been quite noticeable for me this year as I drive around the rural regions of…

Exploring the same theme……….and beyond!

Another geese photo. This time with textures and a bold color cast. Not sure where I am going with this but considering I don’t get out in the early A.M. too often, I would guess not very far. And in another bold experiment, an unsuccessful in camera double-exposure. I thought the concept was good but perhaps the subject matter isn’t…
