Let It Rain


Well. I may never be able to photograph Mardi Gras decorations. Kidding. But, seriously, it isn’t easy this year. First, we drove all over the city. Very few decorations are up yet. In fact, before Mardi Gras purple, green and gold goes up, many people still have to take down their Christmas red and green.Continue reading “Let It Rain”

Through The Windshield


I’m doing a little experimenting. I’d really like for my picture to be on the top of my post rather than on the bottom. I’d also like the picture to have a caption. It doesn’t have to be too long. But, I’d like to identify what’s in the picture. I’d also like to post aContinue reading “Through The Windshield”

Between The Lines


It’s the red tail lights. It’s those tiny little spots of red that make this picture work. Without them this picture is pretty monochromatic. Maybe the yellow reflectors help as well. This is another of my traveling images. Looking at its shape and contemporary look, you’d think it was somewhere in Asia. In fact, thereContinue reading “Between The Lines”

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 toContinue reading “Driftin’ Back”

The Rain


Yes. It’s August in Southeaster Louisiana. That means lots of rain storms. Lots of heavy rain coming out of nowhere. And, once in a while, a tropical storm or  –worse — the threat of a hurricane. And, sometimes… oh, never mind. Katrina is history. That said, I have long believed that pictures are everywhere. YouContinue reading “The Rain”

On Ferret Street


My interest in Central City is partially driven by what happened on Ferret Street, which is now called “The New Ferret Street.” When I attended Loyola University, which is next door to Tulane, Ferret Street was sort of a no go zone. It was run down, crime ridden and pretty much abandoned. It was thatContinue reading “On Ferret Street”

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.

Something Noisy


I thought I ‘d start June with a bang. An explosion of motion.  Just a bunch of light, color and blur.  The leading lines are fun, but that’s about all. I made this picture on the streets of Bangkok. Thailand. The content? Well, cars and buses and a bit of the surrounding buildings. But youContinue reading “Something Noisy”

Bangkok Mist


Sometimes, I feel like just darkening things up a bit things up a bit. This is another kind of experiment. It’s not very pretty and I’m not sure why I did it and, more to the point, kept it. I guess I’m attempting to do something more movie like. I’ve always been drawn to endContinue reading “Bangkok Mist”
