  • All On A Tuesday

    A ll on a Tuesday. It’s Mardi Gras. Everywhere else it’s just another Tuesday. People go about their workday, not even knowing the hell that’s raised in New Orleans. I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing. Anyway. Here are a bunch of pictures to help you celebrate. Happy Mardi Gras, y’all.

  • Another Night

    S ee? I kept my word. Sorta. Fewer photographs than yesterday, more than tomorrow. I think. Enjoy these images. I enjoyed making them. A word of WordPress complaint. I didn’t want to do this, but it never stops. I added yesterday’s post at the same time that I added this one. I was very late […]

  • America’s Children

    T his post started down a different path. I was going to post a whole bunch of flag pictures. As I was organizing this page I’ve been listening to an Audible book. The book is called, “How to Write One Song” by Jeff Tweedy, the founder and front man of the band Wilco. The book […]

  • The Krewe of Madness

Some who you saw just yesterday. Some who you haven’t in seen in a long time. It’s the hug and smile that makes this picture. […]

  • World of Strange Design

    River gets faster not slower. A Jimmy Buffett line if there ever was one. I made this photograph on the Ninth Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina making landfall in Buras, Louisiana. All that followed in the next weeks and months is history. In about two months, we’ll be acknowledging the 15th anniversary of that hellhound. So […]

  • Summer in New Orleans

    Summer in city. This was probably the last second line of the season. The weather turns too hot and humid to walk after the first week in July. We resume during the second week of September. The joyful dancing woman and I had been flirting photographically for the past couple of weeks prior to my […]
