  • Downtown

    There’s too much. Too much of everything. Too many pictures. Too many words. Too many blogs. Too many people trying to be what they aren’t. I probably opened my mouth when I should have kept it closed. I was reading a rather vacuous blog when someone chimed in and said her daughter’s teacher wanted her […]

  • The Game

    Dream It It usually comes to me in a dream even if I find it in the street after it came to me. That’s the easiest part for me. It just comes in the night from someplace else. Create it This is the hardest part. Turning a dream into reality isn’t easy. I’m not a […]

  • Memphis in Winter

    I’ve been working a little in the past mostly because I keep finding “lost” images in my archives. I don’t understand something about that. I use a couple of cloud services for backup. One is Apple’s cloud. It’s because it’s on all my digital tools. The iMac, iPhone, iPad and a backup Samsung phone. Every […]

  • Something Like Paris

    P aris. When you stare long enough at this ancient apartment building you think you are in Paris. France, not Texas. Well, I do anyway. You might not. If you’ve wandered around the streets of Paris going into neighborhoods that aren’t on the tourist must see list, you’ll see buildings like this one. In The […]

  • Just Another Day

    A major discussion took place in my brain. It was along the lines of save it or hold it. Knowing that I would probably lose it within my archives. Rather than hold it, I published it. Obviously, it’s just another day in New Orleans. No. No. No. It’s Halloween. The very night of the holiday […]

  • Down on the Corner

    T he age of experimentation continues. I found out yesterday that I had no idea how to change the color of the tag cloud or the calendar. I’m sure instructions are buried deep in the 900 pages of “how to” notes. Until I find it, you won’t be seeing those blocks again. Today, I’m experimenting […]

  • He Went to Paris

    I ‘ve made a change. You’ll figure it out. It comes under the heading of who was I really hurting? In these pandemic days when many people aren’t able to travel, it’s possible to get a European fix right here in New Orleans. After all, we are a French, Spanish and American place. Much of […]

  • Round Here

    W et. That’s what late June and July are in Southeast Louisiana, wet. If we aren’t getting a lot of rain, the skies are gray and the air is very humid. So far, we’ve been lucky. The temperatures haven’t risen above 90 degrees except on two days and that was the high. If we didn’t […]

  • Nocturne Two

    N ot every street in The French Quarter is brightly lighted with shops, stores, clubs and bars beckoning to passersby. A large part of the Quarter is residential or old work spaces converted into some kind of loft or apartments. Unless you are very lucky you usually can’t park your car near your destination so […]
