And then Owen wrote a book…

Written in a spare, stripped down style, propelling the story and reader along, SOMETIME is a page-turning, cynical, funny, and savage romp through one man’s “anyway the wind blows” life. 

$20 gets you a copy of my book, “Sometime”, a love story for our times, and a personal dedication in my indelible scrawl! Cool? Message me now….

Also available through Amazon!


… because we aren’t shooting assignments: no home interiors, restaurants, people, places, or travel stories while in COVID-19-HELL. 

Oh well. We are happy to be here, together, in Palm Springs and shooting anything at all and whatever we want for the love of shooting. And there are some amazing exteriors to photograph.

Sunday morning found us on Via Lola in Old Las Palmas neighborhood.

Time Flies

It has been a year now since we sold our home and moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Palm Springs, California.

So much has happened in that time: new acquaintances, friends, projects, and after eight months of relatively, groovy bliss, now dealing with COVID-19. All in all, we are in a better place. Untethered by property ownership for the time being, we are free to pivot with ease. In these new times of incredible uncertainty, our ability to shift and adjust our course at will, has given us great peace of mind.

And no, we are not wearing masks for the photo, but we wear them everywhere because we care about our health and yours. And we look great with them. Really!

Ruth Hardy Park in Palm Springs. 

Love, unity, justice. 

Thanks to everyone who took the time to make their voices heard.

Quiet Reflection…

These are troubled and troubling times. 

We don’t have to list it all here. We know what’s going on.

And we know the why of it. And the who.

Stay focused, stay vigilant.

And when the time comes, vote like your life and your country depend on it.


February seems so long ago now-

This state of suspended animation drags on-

Time has lost recognizable meaning-

We should not have bought that 2020 wall calendar-

Stay vigilant- stay safe- stay with it.

Street Photography - Portugal

Spending some time during this shut-in period going through the photo archives. We assembled this gallery of street shooting because the images contain something we are not seeing enough of at the present time: people. People coming, going, talking together, hugging, kissing, or just taking a walk. No face masks or latex gloves, no social distancing. Guarded and unguarded moments in the day to day of life.

These photographs were shot in Lisbon and Porto, Portugal.

Have a look…

If you had said nine months ago…

… that I would again be driving across the country, alone this time, during a pandemic, after taking care of family business for the last month in North Carolina, I would have asked what kind of cracked fortune teller are you?

Yet here I am, behind the wheel, punching out the miles and heading home.

Play it safe, shelter in place, and wash your hands.
