Midnight


M ystical, magical and very blue. This was really a test. What happens if I turn a white statue blue and add leaves? Now we know. It looks like this. Sort of mysterious. Sort of like the garden of good and evil. This is another picture that took some time to make. I think aboutContinue reading “Midnight”

Theme For An Imaginary Western


D o you remember what I said yesterday about November 21 being the start of my year? Well, I started that. After some thought I decided that I wanted to take a look back at my traveling life. This does two things. You get to see photographs that you might never have seen. You know.Continue reading “Theme For An Imaginary Western”

Only the Song Survives


On Palm Sunday. The world is upside down. Time has no meaning. People are living in fear. Stupidity is the order of the day. Still. There is hope. Even though the current state of change is very negative, there are those of us who think that if we make it to the other side thereContinue reading “Only the Song Survives”

In a Small Way


On Easter Sunday. A day about redemption. A day for reflection. For us, a quiet day. Right now the world is in terrible shape. Leaders want to be dictators. Leaders who lie. Small wars in many countries. Church burnings in my own home state. Church bombings today, Easter Sunday, that killed at least 220 peopleContinue reading “In a Small Way”

The Return


The return. To the scene. If you read yesterday’s Storyteller you might have an idea of what I mean. Those first pictures of Mardi Gras Indians were made right here, at this place. In a very different time. I made this picture yesterday. I had some business in Treme and other errands around downtown. TheContinue reading “The Return”

Sunday Glow


A little different look. Not only did I make this picture during normal daylight hours, but I used completely different production software. Because. Two reasons. I do like to experiment and tinker. But, my usual software, On1, has some new downloaded upgrades. The company seems to be struggling when it comes to new products. EspeciallyContinue reading “Sunday Glow”

Saint Francis De Sales Catholic Church


The first time I saw this church it was for sale. The Archdiocese of New Orleans decided to close 33 churches in the years immediately following Hurricane Katrina. They merged the parishes of this church — Saint Francis De Sales — with a neighboring church — The Church of The Holy Ghost. The parishioners wereContinue reading “Saint Francis De Sales Catholic Church”

Rancho de Taos


You’ve seen this place. You know you have. Just about everybody has photographed it. Or, painted it. A few of those artists who did are: Georgia O’Keeffe, Paul Strand, Ansel Adams, Ned Scott. And, that’s just getting started. Georgia O’Keeffe said that it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the United States leftContinue reading “Rancho de Taos”

Good Friday


Since today is Good Friday and tonight is the beginning of Passover, Mahavira Jayanti, Theravadin New Year and Hanumana Jayani, I thought that I should post something appropriate. I found this little place in the 4th Ward in Mid-City while I was looking for an old music club called The Black Diamond. I found the club. It isContinue reading “Good Friday”
