All You Need To Know


A friend of mine used to travel from Michigan to Vermont to photograph fall colors. Now he travels from Florida where he retired. That seems like an awfully long way to chase color. Me? I’m lazy. I walk out of my door and take pictures of fall color. Or, I could. We lost a lotContinue reading “All You Need To Know”

Finally


Well, finally. Must I write more about “finally?” They (the legendary and mythical they) say that if you have snow or rain followed by a cold snap you’ll likely see bright fall colors. That’s what happened. Apparently, they are right because I don’t recall ever seeing bright colors like these in Louisiana. Maybe I justContinue reading “Finally”

Down the Drain


I’m not kidding. If you don’t keep the drains cleaned near your house, your street will flood. If your street floods, your house will flood. And, so will your car. You won’t be happy. Neither will your insurance agent. And, your insurance company will probably drop you for making a claim, leaving you to askContinue reading “Down the Drain”

I Finally Found One


I finally found one. An Autumn leaf. Well, sorta. It mostly looks dead. I found it in the rail yard where I made the streamliner picture. It must have traveled a far piece since there isn’t a tree in sight anywhere near the location. There have been some windy days, so I guess that’s what blewContinue reading “I Finally Found One”

Everything. Or not.


Yes. New Orleans fall colors. Look at that rust. Look at all that green growth. Obviously, the colors are changing. I write this very tongue in cheek. This is another of the pictures I saw on the way to the second line that I didn’t photograph. It has everything. Rust. Trees. Ivy. Green Colors. Chicken Wire. Diamonds.Continue reading “Everything. Or not.”

January Two


Yes. I do like the sub-tropics. I have friends who live in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, California. When I check them on various social media, they are posting snow pictures. Better them than me. The first snowfall is always pretty. Quiet. Pristine. A different kind of beauty. A little exciting. I know better. After a whileContinue reading “January Two”

Nature in the Neighborhood


I think I went a little too far with this one. Oh well. I made this picture about the same time that I made this week’s earlier nature picture. Obviously, I was more interested in Club Desire than I was in fall colors. But, I generally photograph what I see even if I am intent onContinue reading “Nature in the Neighborhood”

If You Don’t Like…


the weather, wait an hour. They said it in New Mexico while I was living there. They say it here. These two pictures are a great example of waiting for the weather to change.The top picture was made on Royal Street in The French Quarter. The bottom picture was made in Treme as I wasContinue reading “If You Don’t Like…”

Fall Arrives in The Neighborhood


It’s a little different in the cement filled neighborhoods in which I often work. Even though it’s the more seedy side of life upon which I tend to focus in these particular neighborhoods, there are little bits of color here and there… especially in the fall, which arrives a lot later in the year downContinue reading “Fall Arrives in The Neighborhood”
