After The Rain


When it rains around here, we often get some very pretty light as the clouds break and the sun peaks through the remaining clouds. Yes. The light is pretty. But, not as pretty as it is in — oh, say — New Mexico. But, that’s a whole other story. A better story is this one.Continue reading “After The Rain”

Heading Downriver


This is the last of my post-Hurricane Isaac pictures. It was made downriver in Holy Cross, which as a may have mentioned, is a sub-district of the 9th ward. Seen from this angle, the post-storm clouds don’t look quite so menacing. Again, all post production was done on my i-Pad using Snapseed. I think thatContinue reading “Heading Downriver”

After The Storm


While I was  doing my post-storm drive by, I happened upon this cemetery in Uptown, New Orleans. I want to show the scene, but the clouds were the most important thing in my mind. So, this is what I did. I more-or-less placed the subject — the cemetery and the house behind it in theContinue reading “After The Storm”

And, On The Fourth of July


I’m not really a big fireworks kind of guy. So, while I was thinking about what to post today, I came up with the idea of a collection of Americana pictures. So here we go.


I posted a picture from one segment of Route 66 yesterday. I thought that I would post another. This time from a very quiet section of the old route which is located in Laguna Pueblo. I like this image because it sort of tells you exactly where you are. You ARE on Route 66. ThereContinue reading

Gulf Skies


Most people know about the summer weather in New Orleans. The temperatures turn very hot. The humidity rises to sauna level. There is a lot of rain… but only for short periods of time. The clouds become very dramatic. This summer season is no different from most, except that the weather got hotter sooner thanContinue reading “Gulf Skies”

Drifting


This picture is called High Desert Drifter. Drifting is what I’ve been trying to do since the passing of Debbie. But, my neighbors won’t let me. For instance, I haven’t cooked a meal since Monday. That’s not because I’ve lost the will or am not hungry. It’s because they keep feeding me. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner.Continue reading “Drifting”

Peace


This is a very simple picture. I need to publish in order to gain some kind of balance for my loss two days ago. It hasn’t even been 48 hours yet and I have to go start a long local assignment. I suppose that is okay since I truly believe that the work is theContinue reading “Peace”

Sparkling City


New York City. What does it mean to you? And, you? And, you? Different things probably. To me, it’s a city that never sleeps. It’s a city of amazingly high energy. It’s sparkles and it shimmers. Don’t misunderstand me. I love other cities as well. But, for different reasons. I love Hong Kong. Oh, boy.Continue reading “Sparkling City”
