As usual, I’m slacking on posting things in order or in a timely manner, but after a bunch of hassle trying to get my photo editing software to work, I’m finally able to process photos again. I had been hoping to continue using my old versions of Photoshop and Lightroom that I had purchased, but … More Finally able to share photos again!
The beginning of this last trip, which I started in the last week of April, happened because of a random AirBnB I stumbled across.

I recently returned from a 6 week road trip full of art, photography and tales, but first I want to tell y’all about how I got stuck in purgatory on my way home.

How have all of your been fairing through this year? Are you doing well? What are you doing to care for your mental well being? Personally, I’ve spent much of the year going stir crazy.

The short story for the day is that I drove from one side of Tennessee to the other. The longer story is that Poe and I took a rather long time to drive from Kingsport, Tennessee to West Memphis, Arkansas (yes, Memphis is actually in two states! ). The day started earlier than planned, thanks … More From there to here
Last month I created a new Gallery at http://www.JLGould.com for monthly sales of up to 50% off. I had thought to put 12 images in the Gallery each month, as I did last month.
