On a hot afternoon in Merida, Mexico, carriage drivers take a nap while waiting for the evening’s business to pick up.

Day’s End

This group of cottonwood trees is something I just can’t resist shooting any time I pass it on my way to Albuquerque. I decided to add a hint of a campfire to thescene by moving a spot of light from the setting sun, using TouchRetouch’s clone stamp and painting over it a little using the healing tool and the dodge and burn tool in Snapseed.

TWENTYNINE PALMS

I spotted this old stake-bed Dodge workhorse in Twentynine Palms, California while walking around with my trusty iPhone 4s, five years ago. I came across it again, on my computer, last evening, and decided to have a go at it with Snapseed. A little caressing, massaging, and fine tuning with the sliders and this is what I came up with. I hope you like it. Prints available.

The Guard

IMG_9271.JPGI came face to face with this guy as I was exiting an art exhibit in Taos recently. He was barking half-heartedly at passers-by. Warning, or invitation to play? I took it to mean don’t get any closer to this vehicle, bud! Of course, he was probably just asking, “Have you seen my master anywhere”?

Another photographer friend behind me said, “That John, he will shoot anything”. He was right.

MOON AND TWO YÉÍ

I’m having computer issues tonight, so there won’t be much in the way of words. Hasta mañana. Or, in Navajo, Näkemiin.

 

Still life

I see it still has wheels; maybe its life isn’t over yet. I’ll bet the owner still has plans for it…

Night Flowers, Mexico City

I know, I know, you can’t take photographs at night with an iPhone. But I can’t help taking a chance on it. Hmmm.

EARL, HORSEMAN

Earl. Not only a horseman, king of the dancehall, too, and ladies’ man. A real Taos character, and a friend.
