The Accidental Fisherman

Posted by Les Becker on July 4, 2009 in Other People's Stories... |

Muddy by the Water I have this buddy who is an incredible cook and a hot-shit photographer. My kid is very partial to him, because he spoils her with pickles. She calls him “Muddy”, and I think he’s rather partial to her, as well, because whenever we walk into his restaurant, he has a bowlful […]

Where’s the “Beech”?!

Posted by Les Becker on July 2, 2008 in The Landlady |

Parade Girl – 1956 It didn’t show up in the photo, so Ruby’s sister, who took the original picture back in 1956, wrote what the sign said with a ball-point pen, on the copy she made for Ruby. Yes, that’s Ruby with the mask, goggle eyes and bathing suit. Ummm. Yeah. That’s a bathing suit. […]

Pink Fantasy…

Posted by Les Becker on April 29, 2008 in Real Life, Zenishness... |

Pink FantasyTaken February 22, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m right impressed with myself over this picture. I seriously doubt I’ll get another shot even half this good for the rest of the year. I kind of hope I don’t – I’m really proud of this one. I want to blow it up to about […]

A Fascination with Fakery

Posted by Les Becker on October 21, 2007 in Artsy Fartsy, Photography, Photoshop |

Portal2theUniverse (AKA “Gateway to the Multiverse”) called me a Prestidigitator a couple of weeks ago.
