The Great White Way


I don’t like your fashion business, misterAnd I don’t like these drugs that keep you thinI don’t like what happened to my sisterFirst we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin Those are Leonard Cohen’s lyrics. I suppose you can think of New York in those terms. I don’t. I usually like it there. I likeContinue reading “The Great White Way”

Flying Along


A fter reading Storyteller, many of you know I like blurry motion pictures. I try not to publish too many of them because, you know, you’d get bored. For that matter it’s the same reason musicians playing a concert don’t play five or six fast songs in a row. They — and me — tryContinue reading “Flying Along”

Run, Run,Run


H oly Moly. I started looking in some archives that are deeper than the rest. Boy, did I find surprising pictures. Pictures that I not only forgot about, but were core parts of some interesting projects. This is one of them. This is a bull. Slow your roll.. She — the women — is aContinue reading “Run, Run,Run”

Home, Not Home


Y es. I was taking you through my travels, but soon New Orleans will fade into my rambles. I’d like to say I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I don’t. The city is very broken. We are on pace to have the highest number of murders per capita. That means we’ll have around 350Continue reading “Home, Not Home”

Once In A Lifetime


O nce upon a time I lived and worked in a far place. In Asia, in China, in Hong Kong. Sounds glamorous doesn’t it? It wasn’t. Just like most “glamorous” ventures, the hard work and effort is usually done in the deep background that most people never see. In order to do my job IContinue reading “Once In A Lifetime”

Wind and a Tree


More experimental than not. That’s this photograph. It’s about wind, which arrived in about 30 mph gusts. Even the all seeing spaniel wanted very little to do with it. We walked for a while and after watching her ears fly around I thought it was better to head home. That’s what we did. We wentContinue reading “Wind and a Tree”

Postponed


This Mardi Gras parade season seems doomed. Last night we had tropical storm level winds, the gusts were around 40 mph. So the parades were postponed. Two will roll tonight minus all the walking groups. The third will roll on Sunday. That means 164 floats will be on the streets tonight. At least one ofContinue reading “Postponed”

Promise Kept


Promise kept. I said that I would experiment with Mardi Gras pictures rather than publish images that are documentary in nature. That turned out to be harder than I thought. It’s tough turning a clean, sharp image of somebody doing something into a kind of art. For the most part, it feels forced. And, itContinue reading “Promise Kept”

Thinking About The Future


The future. Not so far in the future. Maybe just up to Mardi Gras parade time. Anything more would be wasted because as a not-so-wise boxer once said, “You can make all the plans that you want, but once you get punched in the face all the plans go out the window.” That’ll happen withContinue reading “Thinking About The Future”
