omething a little different to start the work week. I thought I hadn’t posted a little portfolio in long time so I decided today was the day.
Generally, my New Orleans pictures are fairly recognizable. Not these. I’ve published some of the images that you are looking at in the very distant past but they resurfaced while I work on my PicFair project. They are for sale or licensable over there.
The two bottom pictures are among my most favorite. The dark blue picture withe the warm lights speaks to me about home. I made it as I was walking back from a second line on my way back to my car. That happens often.
The “Orders To Go” picture was made on one of my walks through the Quarter around 8am. It was made during the summer when the outdoor air is warm and humid and the inside air is cold with air conditioning. It met up against the glass. Viola! Condensation. I haven’t walked in the early morning in a long time.
Come to think of it, there’s a lot of things I haven’t done in a long time. For instance, I haven’t been to the Quarter in over two years. Of course, there is a very good reason for that. You know what it is. I’d like to see it before we pull up stakes and head for the great farm in the northern south. But, I won’t be walking in the crowds of drunken non-maskers, even with somebody else’s body.
That’s too bad. I’ve read that the OA5 surge is on. It’ll get worse come autumn. Reported cases are averaging about 150,000 people a day. The WHO believes that number is really closer to a million a day. Because many people are immunized, but still catching it, many of them are are not reporting it as they self isolate. That’s good for them, bad for me.
What can I say?
For most of America, the pandemic is over.
