The Between Time


It started during the pandemic and was enhanced by Delta-x and Hurricane Ida. Memories. They’ve been floating around for days. It was bad enough when time was flexible. Now? Whew. And. Then. The anniversary of Warren Zevon’s passing arrived. You know. The guy who sang “Werewolves of London.” He was so much more than that.Continue reading “The Between Time”

Midnight in The Garden District


Or. Something like that. This picture was made at night. The Garden District, especially at night, has a very spooky look and feel to it. You can just feel the ghostly presence. It should. And, you should. It is a very old area in a city that is very old in itself. Many of theContinue reading “Midnight in The Garden District”

The City


This picture is a rare look at I-10 with no traffic as you enter the city. Normally, I’d write this off as dumb luck, but it’ was really about 8am on a Sunday morning when people are either getting ready for church or getting ready for NFL football. Me? I was taking advantage of aContinue reading “The City”

The Dome


I wrote in some earlier post that one of the reasons Central City seems to have some renewed value to developers is because it is a ten minutes away from the Superdome. Er, The Mercedes Dome. That’s what it’s called since Saints owner Tome Benson sold the naming rights to The Louisiana Dome. Other peopleContinue reading “The Dome”

It’s All In The Details


When I work in Central City, a lot of what I find is in the details. It means that I can’t just drive to an appointment. Or, drive around looking for things. I have walk around looking for little details that either function as a sort of point picture, or as something large as anContinue reading “It’s All In The Details”

The Long View


When I work in Central City, I shoot I lot of close up images. Even my portraits seem to get right to the heart of the matter. But, on the evening that I made yesterday’s picture, I took a step back. I wanted to see what the view from Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard looked like toContinue reading “The Long View”

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”

Remainders


I’ve been working a lot in New Orleans Central City on a large project. Every now and then, I just cruise through, taking a look to see what I missed in a more general sense. One night — the same night — that I made the picture I posted yesterday as “the dark end ofContinue reading “Remainders”
