5 Minutes with Joe

The Fujifilm GFX 50R, paired with Fujinon GF63mmF2.8 R WR lens, delivers outstanding image quality; today’s cropped Featured Image and fuller-size companion demonstrate the camera’s capabilities. Rather than use a telephoto, I prefer to shoot with a prime lens on a camera that can capture lots of detail, allowing me to crop-in, or recompose, during […]

Neck Pickup

For some reason, AT40 recaps are some of the most popular things I’ve ever written. So, given a long weekend, I’m gonna take on another one from the early ’80s. (As with last time, there is no special significance to the chosen week, and I didn’t know what would be played until I listened.) Favorites […]

Music Marmalade

Xenophanes, a staff writer at sputnik music, in a review panning Beirut’s album, said, “Gallipoli is nice. It’s pleasant. But it’s the type of nice that makes you wonder if there was any substance there at all.” For me, stumbling upon the title track while scanning recently released albums, I had exactly the opposite reaction to the album’s […]

The Future is Past

It’s one of the phenomena of pop music that occasionally, very occasionally, there could be a period in an artistes’ life when their career is on fire. It’s not just about songs or performances, it’s about something that is hard to create. Largely it’s about Zeitgeist and luck being in the right place at the […]

5 Minutes with Joe

On Feb. 1, 2019, as I walked down Monroe where it hugs the canyon behind Maryland, a bonded pair presented on adjoining properties. I captured several portraits, using Leica Q, planning to return for closer-up shots. I would see the chunkier beastie again, doing its business in another yard—and, well, even felines deserve some dignity, […]

5 Minutes with Joe

Some kitties pull your heartstrings—to somber notes—as did this black and white seen yesterday along Campus Avenue, at the same property where lives the grey that I call Blue. The putty-tat earns its nickname for the day being profiled and for me thinking when looking at its face: “Be mine”, like the text on one […]

Jean Michel Jarre is considered one of the pioneers of popular electronic music. In fact his third album release, Oxygene, was a world wide, multi platinum selling success, that has paved the way for electronic artists for decades to come. It therefore stands to reason that I would want to write an expose on this […]

5 Minutes with Joe

Wagering a guess, the shorthair that I call Mewl is a pregnant female. She was needy and noisy—hence the nickname—when my wife and I encountered the kitty along Spalding Place on Feb. 6, 2019. We approached from Madison Avenue through the alley between Park and Georgia, when we saw her walking from street to sidewalk. […]
