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 TheContinue reading “Something Like Paris”

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 holidayContinue reading “Just Another Day”

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 experimentingContinue reading “Down on the Corner”

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 ofContinue reading “He Went to Paris”

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’tContinue reading “Round Here”

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 soContinue reading “Nocturne Two”

Raindrops And Stuff


One of my road trips during the PAD days was to Reno, Nevada. There is a story behind this adventure which I’ll tell in a bit. I drove from Albuquerque through Las Vegas and north on state route 95. I stopped along the way. I turned a two day trip into three. I made aContinue reading “Raindrops And Stuff”

Hand on My Back


A lot of thought. Art, in its best form, is supposed to make a connection. It is supposed to make your viewers or readers feel something. A lot of people have been doing that to me. A friend of mine lost her dog last week. The dog was old and it was time. She wroteContinue reading “Hand on My Back”

Windows


Walking is better than driving. Because you see stuff like this. I saw this in a window. In the French Quarter.  You know how some stores, usually clothing stores, put mannequins in the window. Well, this is an art gallery’s version of that. If you look close enough you can see framed photographs hanging onContinue reading “Windows”
