Can’t Let Go


I started this day thinking about the things I really like. Some are obvious. Some less so. There’s photography. Art. Design. Color. There’s baseball. The New York Yankees. F1 Motorsports. Music of all genres. Live music. Recorded music. There is travel. Other countries. Southeast Asia. Hong Kong. China. The American Southwest. Virginia. Even New Orleans.Continue reading “Can’t Let Go”

Tell Me Why


T hey say it’s all in the eyes. That the eyes are the windows to the soul. Who am I to disagree? I haven’t been on the street for a long time. Y’all know why. It’s driving me crazy. I don’t like being cooped up. I’m not sure I’ll ever return to the street inContinue reading “Tell Me Why”

Across A Wire


S leep. The missing link. I tell you. I’m on a rock ‘n roll schedule. Go to bed too late. Get up too late. Making up for it by taking a nap after breakfast. Then, I’m late to Storyteller. This has gotta stop. Don’t tell me to go to bed earlier. I just toss andContinue reading “Across A Wire”

All That You Dream


A s I recall, it was hot. A lot of us were sucking down water and sweating it out as fast as we drank it. We were tripping all over each other. I stepped on someone. I turned around to apologize mostly with my eyes because we couldn’t hear anything. They guy I stepped onContinue reading “All That You Dream”

Dim Lights, Thick Smoke


T here’s a story behind every door, but I don’t know what they are. A good guess is that this place received some of Hurricane Katrina’s flood waters, but not that much because a lot of Central City is above sea level which makes it that last great ungentrified piece of land in the city.Continue reading “Dim Lights, Thick Smoke”

Down On The Corner


A s you know by now I change my mind a lot. Whaddya want from me? Heh. I’m an artist. Or, so I think. I will still do my experimental layering, but those images come together when they are ready. I tried to do a couple yesterday. They were forced and it showed. I alsoContinue reading “Down On The Corner”

Ghost Town


I showed this picture another similar one to a friend of mine who plays in the gallery world. He said these pictures are worth a lot in that world. I suppose, but I really don’t see it. I made these pictures because they were there to be made. Eventually, these pictures will become parts ofContinue reading “Ghost Town”

Long View


T his very well could be my last post if the software causes another break down. Make no mistake, this isn’t hard for me. I’ve been doing this for years… and years. It’s funky, nasty, poorly designed software from WordPress that is causing me grief. Every time I start to think that I should justContinue reading “Long View”

The Only Pay Telephone


The only working pay phone in New Orleans lives in Central City. It’s sort of in one of the worst areas of the neighborhood. I suppose people need to communicate or — forgive me — set up drug deals. That’s what makes this corner of the area so dangerous. When drug deals go bad, thereContinue reading “The Only Pay Telephone”
