Our house is on fire – And the baby’s on the roof – No one would believe me – But baby, I got proof The stars keep shinin’ – Don’t mean no thing to me The sky has folded up and said he’s gonna leave,
Our house is on fire – And the baby’s on the roof – No one would believe me – But baby, I got proof The four winds keep howlin’, tellin’ us the tale Everyone’s deep pockets, everyone’s for sale
Our house is on fire – And the baby’s on the roof – No one would believe me – But baby, I got proof Takin’ what we need, and then a whole lot more Mother earth’s done waitin’, She’ll be settlin’ that score
It’s always an interesting exercise to review the work from the previous year. It’s sort of a snapshot of the previous 12 months and reveals how much effort was put into the craft. As expected, my photographic output was “less than usual”. That happens when artistic efforts are divided among other mediums. Still, 2019 was a year dedicated to returning to older habits that have suffered over the last four years. Most specifically, just getting out there to make photographs.
Sometimes the journey takes us over seemingly endless waters. Just keep pushing.
It’s been awhile since I’ve uploaded to my print site….this one was added yesterday.

The day was very non-cooperative when I made this…. No clouds…so I turned and used some reflections coming off the river behind me. I couldn’t represent the river for this piece. So I apologized for appropriating its tonal values. “Look”, I said,”it’s nothing personal. Your ripples and such are fine, but that’s not needed right now. But your light refraction is spot on! Moon has fully cooperated and allowed me to bring her down to the fake horizon. Actually, there’s not a horizon there….it’s just the way our minds complete things. It’s Tom Foolery I suppose. So are we good?” She said, “what’s light refraction?”

One another note….my second “Dream Sequence” ambient music video is well on its way….should be finished in couple of weeks. It will feature a compilation of all my butterfly cuts and some ambient music. Here is a WIP view.
