Further


B ack to Shanghai. China. This is a photograph made on film. Fuji Velvia, if I remember correctly. So, it’s a classic. Or, just plain old. I worked there for a very short time. Before I had to be anywhere I would go for a walk in the morning, mostly to Old Town. I wasContinue reading “Further”

Theme For An Imaginary Western


D o you remember what I said yesterday about November 21 being the start of my year? Well, I started that. After some thought I decided that I wanted to take a look back at my traveling life. This does two things. You get to see photographs that you might never have seen. You know.Continue reading “Theme For An Imaginary Western”

Ever South


A nother day. Another block. Another time. Another house. This is a place that I know for certain was damaged by Hurricane Katrina. I’ve watched it over the years. It follows the laws of nature with the overgrowth. In the winter, such as it is in the Gulf Coast, you can see more of theContinue reading “Ever South”

The Summer Wind


A nother weird week. It seems like death is following us around no matter what we do. I suppose that’s the way it is going to be until we manage the virus and people are able to think again. I have no idea what killed Charlie Watts. But, it may illustrate something that I’ve longContinue reading “The Summer Wind”

Help Me Understand


The dogs don’t understand. Holiday or not, they want their walks. Even the aging dog who sees things still wants to go for long walks, just not as fast. That’s okay with me. I get the chance to look around and see stuff. I saw this scene about ten minutes into our walk. Then… nothing.Continue reading “Help Me Understand”

Mother of Muses


So, people are saying spring is finally upon us. Down here in The Gulf Coast we’ve had spring for about a month. But, in the last day spring exploded. The greens are greener. The flowers are vibrant. Leaves have just exploded out of their slumber. Luckily, it’s still cool bordering on cold. In a monthContinue reading “Mother of Muses”

The Wheel


The wheel is turning and it won’t slow down. Can’t back up and you can’t stand still I learned a lot today. I learned it before breakfast. I watched The President’s discussion about the horrific number of pandemic dead in our country. 500,000. That’s 120,000 more than the city of New Orleans. I listened toContinue reading “The Wheel”

The Picture Begins With The Past


The day’s conclusion. I wrote about “Ray’s Blue” yesterday. Of course, I twisted the color around so much that you barely got to see it. Not this time. The sun was low in the sky. Darkness was almost upon me. I made a few quick pictures, unsure if I had an image. I didn’t haveContinue reading “The Picture Begins With The Past”

Day Breaks


Quiet times. Normally The French Quarter is noisy. People are walking around in all states of decay. Some are tired. Some are lost. Many are drunk. Every now and then, you can find a beautiful stillness on the old cobbled streets. Both times of day have golden light and long shadows. The most predictable timeContinue reading “Day Breaks”
