I'm not misanthropic, usually, but I love taking the back roads on my solo photo road trips and staying away from people. I've mentioned before that traveling on the blue highways made famous by William Least-Heat Moon is restorative and contemplat… Read full post »
I retraced my steps.
I do that a lot, not just because sometimes the memory fails and I don't know I've been down a path before, but there is comfort and value in the things I know. So I choose to visit again those things I love.… Read full post »
I'm working on a post, long overdue, of some artistic and historical significance. One that will be dedicated to three OS friends of mine, Gary Justis, Patricia/Cartouche and Cherie/Artfish.* But I have to get something off my chest first.
Sometimes I hate people. I… Read full post »
Hey! I'm famous. Yeah, that's Krys Boyd looking at me, Scott!
Well, ok, I'm not as famous as Scott Rosenberg, co-founder of Salon.com who took some heat recently from some OS members on Sandra's blog for not mentioning OS in a recent article in Wired magazine.

Ocotillo sunset. Fouquieria splendens
Saguaro sunset. Carnegiea gigantea
Contemplate, if you will, this serene beauty—an ocotillo and saguaro sunset. (And imagine their prickly, furious and frantic impatience to be in bloom before succumbing to their… Read full post »
Tucked away in a back corner of my morning paper, I found something that caught my eye.
Jean Anleu may be the first to be Twitarrested by his own government. To be sure, there are paranoid and repressive governments who fear the Twitterverse, and have taken… Read full post »
I know some of you are following my son's epic journey this summer in his Fighting Cancer Every Mile cycling from Austin, Texas to Anchorage, Alaska. This is an update, but of a different sort—using some of his words, uploading his photos and showing the… Read full post »
This is a quick and easy staple dinner in our home. Prep and cooking time is less than one hour, but that's taking into account that it takes a good 45 minutes or so for the brown rice to get to that perfect plump nutty… Read full post »
I offended a Dutch book editor.
Apparently, it's an easy thing to do. I thought I was being thorough, but I guess I just needed to get over myself. I'm sure I still do.
I have a Flickr Pro account and have used that service… Read full post »
The Living and the Dead
I'm of that age when the worry of being drafted into the gaping maw that was Vietnam occupied a good portion of my high school thoughts. Even though our school had surfing as a PE option, and I had hair down my… Read full post »
We got a new neighbor a little bit ago. Well, actually, our new neighbors are a migrant family returning to the birthplace. I was a bit shocked last year when I first saw a baby wandering around the 'hood. I took the following two shots last year about… Read full post »
I was inspired recently by Harry Homeless' beautiful blog on the Fort Worth Japanese Gardens and remembered my own recent trip to the Portland Japanese Garden in Oregon.
I put this slideshow together for the wife, partner and bride of… Read full post »
This is almost a repost, but I think it's reworked enough to stand on its own. I have to admit first off that I am not a video person and it took me a while to figure out even this meager endeavor.
I think the way I've embedded… Read full post »
This is the second in what may be a continuing series of stuff I do in Photoshop. You’re not really limited to Photoshop, as it’s such an expensive program. Similar, if not exact, things can be done in Gimp, a free photo manipulation program, or in the less expensive… Read full post »
Audrey Frances Doyle née Reed
The picture above was taken when she was about 24 in 1941.
She drove an ambulance during the blitzkrieg in London during World War II.
The greatest thing my mom taught me was empathy—it is something t… Read full post »
I'm still writing about being on the road to Rancho Laurena, and taking my time, both in blogging the journey and as it was in fact on the road less traveled. Sorry Lauren, we'll get there eventually, just one more post after this and… Read full post »
I'm a transplant to Texas, but I've been here for a long time now. I came for love and then stayed, and the compromise has worked out fine. I do miss living a couple blocks from the beach near San Diego when August in Dallas comes around. I tend… Read full post »
Bless me OS, for I have sinned. It has been seven days since my last submission. These are my sins: I have been too busy to attend to you, my mistress OS, in the way you've grown accustomed. I have been prepping and installing a collection of my photography in… Read full post »
On the free tram
On the tram
I pass my stop.
I wish and wish
and then I wish i didn’t have
so many wishes in my life.
I want, I need to have
these things that wishes ought to be.
I want my best friend to suddenly… Read full post »
This is the second in a series taking you along on one of my solo photo road trips. It's a continuation of the previous post Dawn at Prada Marfa, a photo shoot of an art installation in a remote part of the high desert in West Texas./… Read full post »
