Political Wasteland

We often talk about political problems in this country.  I have done a lot of trouble shooting.  Some of it on large complex electronic systems.  This mess is so complex that I have no idea where someone or some entity could start the trouble shooting process.  Clearly it should start with the voters but we []


Used equipment for sale

I don’t often have used equipment for sale.  These items are on sale because I have replaced them with newer models.  All are in excellent condition.  The computer has all the stock programs and the latest Mac operating system (OS X El Capitan) installed.  I can answer any questions you have about the units. John []


Birds of a Feather

For those of you who couldn’t make the opening of my exhibition “Birds of a Feather” tonight, I have a video which will give you an idea of what the show looked like.  It was a great evening.  My friend/partner Ruth Hoyt is the videographer.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myRxp1nOqQ8


Birds of a Feather

I am pleased to announce that I have a gallery exhibition opening April 2, 2016 at Steve Martins Fine Art Gallery, 624 Julia St. New Orleans La.  The reception is from 6pm to 9pm.  The exhibition will be in the gallery until May 2. My birds are predominantly birds that “flock together,” nest together in []


Lake Martin and Jefferson Island Rookeries

Lake Martin and Jefferson Island Rookeries Review I went to Lake Martin and Jefferson Island Rookeries Sunday  and Monday 5/17 and 18 for the first time this year.  I can summarize my trip by saying that Lake Martin is no longer a viable location for wading bird photography.  The rookery at Jefferson Island is healthy []


The Wave

    I hiked to the wave with my partner Ruth Hoyt and friend Eric Dong in February 2015.  I write about it because it was an inspiring hike and an awe inspiring sight.  We arrived at the trail head a little after daylight the morning of our permit to find temperatures in the 20s. []


Full Frame VS APS-C Camera Sensors

I am occasionally involved in discussions about which sensor format is better.  Full frame or APS-C?  It continues to be my opinion that they are equal if the photo sites are essentially the same size and the manufacturing technology is essentially equal.  That is to say that a 16mp APS-C sensor is the equal in []


Winter in Iceland

February 22 through 28, 2015 was a week of mixed hurricane force wind, white out driving conditions, rain and attendant cloudy skies.   But it was also a photo adventure where 11 of us from the east coast and south and an Icelandic guide photographed ice caves, glaciers, ice burgs on black sand beach, one []


Bird photography workshop

A while back I mentioned that I may hold a bird photography workshop in spring 2015.  I know it is a bit late to post it here but I will be presenting a short program titled “A Brief Introduction to Bird Photography” on 19 March at the Greater New Orleans Camera Club regular meeting. The []


Loosing Ground

This is a post that is very different from most I have done.  It is not about photography, travel, birding or any of my other adventures.  It is about the loss, the accelerating loss of land in South East Louisiana.  I spend a lot of time in the costal marshes and have been aware of []
