Deep, Dark, And Dreamless


T his isn’t my usual style of Monday photograph. No matter. I like this picture and that’s good enough. It’s probably more about me than I know. It was made at night, which is rare these days. Especially when I’m just using a phone. I suppose I could call it photographer’s luck but luck favorsContinue reading “Deep, Dark, And Dreamless”

That’s Your Secret


L et’s see if this thing works today. In many ways, I’m becoming afraid to post. It’s become what bad thing is WordPress going to do to me today. I don’t know why I care. It’s not the most important thing do on any given day. I read an op-ed column in which the writerContinue reading “That’s Your Secret”

Inspiration


It comes when it comes. Inspiration. I was talking with a friend a couple of nights ago when she said that inspiration is everywhere. I know that. But, I forgot that I did. So. Here’s the best possible example. We had a big day out. We went places. Well, two places. The gasoline store andContinue reading “Inspiration”

It’s Here


Yes. It’s here. It came earlier than I thought it would. It came like an onrushing tide. CoVid-19 arrived yesterday. The person who caught it lives in Jefferson Parish. He or She is being treated at the new Veterans Administration hospital in Mid-City, New Orleans. We haven’t yet been told much beyond that. I supposeContinue reading “It’s Here”

Grand Experiment


After a while, winter’s bare trees start to get boring. I set out to make something that is a little different. Something that adds 1+1 and makes the answer come out to three. I think that I did it. What I made is a huge image. One that takes up the entire top of Storyteller.Continue reading “Grand Experiment”

Looks Like Cold


It can fool you. The picture. Sometimes, the weather. This picture looks cold. It’s not. I made this picture yesterday. The high was unseasonable. It was 80 degrees. The winds blew, a storm followed and the temperature won’t get above the mid-fifties. For the next four days. Yippee. With Mardi Gras Indians Uptown Super Sunday,Continue reading “Looks Like Cold”

It Shall Be


A natural mood. An attempt by me to do two things. Or, three. It’s cold in the swamp today. It was cold and extremely windy last night. That’s what this art is about. You’ve got the bare tree. The kind you see in winter. You’ve got a monochromatic picture because yesterday everything was gray andContinue reading “It Shall Be”

The Darkness


What do you see? At night? When you are alone? What do you imagine? Late at night? When nobody is around? Do you worry about your bills? About the next day? Maybe even the ultimate thing — dying? Does that make you fearful? Does it scare you? Does it excite you? I’ve been reading someContinue reading “The Darkness”

Searching


Always learning. That’s what Storyteller is about. That’s what I try to do. It ain’t always easy. You can rile up some people along the way. You ask questions that can’t be answered. I ran into that yesterday. It was that music thing. The blogger thought that I was offended. I have no idea howContinue reading “Searching”
