  • Something. Anything.

    Most people get excited about the change of the year. Things are going to change. Things will get better. They say that. That’s what they say. Today is Friday. The 13th. That’s pretty smooth. In New Orleans they are working on the 3/2 plan. Three people are murdered every two days. Even though the city […]

  • What Does It Feel Like?

    This going to be more about the technique than it is about the picture. The picture, itself, was made in Mong Kok, in Kowloon. For those of you who don’t know much about the geography of Hong Kong, Kowloon is a peninsula that extends down from the mainland, which means China. Above Kowloon are The New […]

  • Hollywood Road

    Hollywood Road. Not in that Hollywood. That’s in Los Angeles. In California. This one is in Hong Kong. As in China. It was the second road to be built by the British after the colony after they began Queen’s Road. It was the first to be finished. Apparently, it was named after a garden in […]

  • One Thing Leads To Another

    As the title suggests, one thing really does lead to another. I was only going to publish one Hong Kong picture and go back to showing you more New Orleans. But. Then I thought… I’d like to mess around with some newer pictures. So. More Hong Kong. What started as a whim has become something […]

  • Once Upon A Time

    Once upon a time, back in the late 1990s, I lived on this street. Right in the building with the bar sign on it. No. I didn’t live in the bar. That sign is painted on the wall of a 23 story apartment building. In those days, Staunton Street was a quiet backwater neighborhood street […]

  • Somewhere for Lunch

    So. She said, “take me somewhere fun for lunch after we drop off the Mardi Gras beads.” I’ve been wanting to try a Vietnamese restaurant on the far downriver end of Magazine Street. So, that’s where we went. It was a good choice since we dropped the beads off at St. Michaels, where they will […]

  • Another Year

    And so another year comes to a close. I thought I’d do some kind of wrap up. I was having trouble figuring out what to do. I was thinking about posting my Picture A Day project minus one picture for the 31st. But, who wants to see 364 tiny pictures at one time? I’d bore […]

  • Driftin’ Back

    More Hong Kong. This is Admiralty just as it comes toward Central. This is pretty much the heart of the banking and government center. I made this picture late at night. Normally, this place is just packed with hundreds of people scurrying here, there and everywhere. But, not at around 9pm. I was able to […]

  • Once Upon A Time

    I lived on this street many years ago. In those days, it wasn’t quite so colorful. Nor, was it anywhere near as energetic as it appears in this picture. In fact, in those days Staunton Street was just a little blue-collar neighborhood. Today, it is the home of many international restaurants, cafes and coffee shops. […]
