  1. There are some amazing images here, all very fine. My favorite: ‘Cherokee at Dusk’. Really extraordinary, and thanks for sharing all this here. I love the Hudson River scenes too. Some very haunting photos I will remember and go back too. Interesting use of media and technique.

    • Thank you very, very much. I’ve enjoyed the photography on your website as well and I think must have subconsciously convinced me to upload many more examples of my work. Ah…those Hudson scenes, mm, they bring me right back to that moment. And those that look haunting – were definitely haunting places with people to match – no camera tricks there.

  2. whose house is the loneliest house?

  3. Carl: Really enjoyed browsing through these wonderful works of art. Thanks for sharing. Namaste…..

  4. Loneliest house photos are well named. I felt it. Nicely done.

  5. Thank you so much .would it be possible to get one print from you I collect print

  6. What a great collection of photographs telling their stories. I especially like the one: “Grove reflected 1982”, To me, it looks like one of nature’s wonderful paintings. Life is good and memories are forever.

    • Mary – first of all you are wonderful to look over there and find that one picture of all – because it remains my favorite, as if I didn’t myself take it, somehow, if that makes sense but that some other “eye” in me snapped it at the right time. I like it so much that I’ve enlarged it and hang it in the hall of my home. So thanks for spotting and further liking it.

      But secondly, those simple words you write “memories are forever.” I think I realized this so acutely when Yeager my dog was in his last months and I forced all other thoughts out of my mind to notice everything my senses could experience – and weirdly I can now return to some of those very moments as if I was truly there again. I think the more we work on being present the more we can chose to revisit the places, people and experiences we’ve had as if it is fresh. A memory can seriously endure in our mind’s eye for as long as we are conscious. And looping all this back – I actually remember that day I took that. I was very young but i still remember that moment.

  7. Carl, I never knew that you were such a good photographer in addition to all your other skills. You have a strong sense of historical context in several of your images, which isn’t surprising considering the topics of your blog. My personal favourite is Cherokee at Dusk. I’ve been to Los Angeles several times and have felt the energy of the palm trees, especially silhouetted during the glorious sunsets. Your atmospheric rendering of that magic has brought back so many memories of fond times spent there. Thank you!

    • Mark – You sure paid me an extraordinary compliment. As a photographer yourself, the comment you wrote also proved an aspect of expression which speaks directly to your point – I believe that the effort to express through the visual is strongly connected to that which is articulated in words. Most of all, I want to thank you. Few notice the photography so it means a great deal. Thank you very, very much.
