Another Day


S omething a little different to start the work week. I thought I hadn’t posted a little portfolio in long time so I decided today was the day. Generally, my New Orleans pictures are fairly recognizable. Not these. I’ve published some of the images that you are looking at in the very distant past butContinue reading “Another Day”

Breakfast


The Clover Grill. A classic dive in the French Quarter. The food is good. Hamburgers are cooked under a hubcap. You probably can’t finish a side order of french fries. And, you’ll never know who or what you’ll see. Go there late at night and the trannies will perform for you. Especially if they thinkContinue reading “Breakfast”

Another Picture From The Archives


Sunday morning. In the French Quarter. The tourists haven’t awakened yet. The only folks out are locals. Either they are getting ready for church. Or, they are getting ready to work. Or, they are just coming come from a long overnight shift somewhere in the Quarter. Before they go where ever they are going, theyContinue reading “Another Picture From The Archives”

Early Morning Dew


I used to walk around The French Quarter sort of early in the morning on Sunday. I’ve pretty much stopped that, mostly because I rarely go to the Quarter. No real reason. It’s just one of those things. On this morning I was walking on Bourbon Street, toward the downriver end. Where things are quieter.Continue reading “Early Morning Dew”

The Truth


Bo-be-ya. That word is the only word this young man says. He said it at the Clover Grill. On Bourbon Street. In The French Quarter. It means “Good” or “I like it.” I’m told that it’s very hard to make a portrait of him. I didn’t think it was so hard. It’s all about relatingContinue reading “The Truth”

Study in Blue


I wasn’t going to do this. I wasn’t going to post another small collection of pictures. No. Not forever. Nothing is forever. Besides, you know me. I change my mind whenever I feel like it.  Just not today. Or, for parts of the next few weeks. I was just going to post the top pictureContinue reading “Study in Blue”

Vapor


One thing about summer in New Orleans, or anywhere else that is a semi tropical place, is the humidity. It really shows itself in the form of condensation in the early morning on glass objects of all kinds. Windows are great fun to photograph as well as anything that is located on the shadow side of aContinue reading “Vapor”

One Night. One Place.


I mentioned having dinner at The Clover Grill in yesterday’s post. Today, I thought I’d show you a picture. Just one. Sometimes, I feel protective of the places I like. At any rate, The Clover Grill is located on the down river end of Bourbon Street in The French Quarter just where things start toContinue reading “One Night. One Place.”

What I Saw… Last Night


We’ve had a lot of rain during the past few days in Southeast Louisiana. Feeling a little stir crazy, we went to The French Quarter for a bite to eat. We stopped into the Clover Grill on lower Bourbon Street. It’s a little dive dinner. But, it’s my kind of dive. Besides, without fanfare andContinue reading “What I Saw… Last Night”
