Over 99 Billion Served


I was playing around with two pictures and just like that they came together into one. That’s when I know I happened onto something good. Happened is right. I doubt that I ever actually make a good image on my own. Luck, the universe, Ronald McDonald or something leads me to the picture. Maybe that’sContinue reading “Over 99 Billion Served”

Living in a Ghost Town


T his picture. This very one. I wanted to publish it today even thought we aren’t quite to this point. Why? Because I could and felt like it. That’s reason enough even if it isn’t the best reason. I suppose I could tell you some story about my thinking, but there isn’t any. Stories orContinue reading “Living in a Ghost Town”

Imaginary Ships


W e do it for the stories we could tell, so says Jimmy Buffett, even when we know do that something could end badly. It’s especially true if you are a young teenager. I was 13 or 14 when I did that story telling thing. I went to a day camp during summer. One dayContinue reading “Imaginary Ships”

River Rise


I was rooting around in my archives when I stumbled upon this picture. I made it very early when we returned to New Orleans. We used to live in Jefferson Parish, near to where The Saints football team practices. I used to walk on a track. Depending on direction you could walk about 1.5 milesContinue reading “River Rise”

Rolling


Sometimes I can’t make up my mind. I was poking about looking for abandoned railroads for one of my book projects. The book title is in hand. “Abandoned Railroads of New Orleans.” That would be great, except that most of our rail yards and tracks are fully working. Certainly, you can find abandoned railroad stuffContinue reading “Rolling”

They Do Grow High


My fascination with trees. In all seasons. Especially in winter. I counted. In the last two weeks, I’ve mostly published pictures of trees. I like them. I like their shapes. Their form. I like them when their branches are bare in the winter cold. I can see all sorts of thing going on. I likeContinue reading “They Do Grow High”

Silver Beads


A monochromatic study. I made this image on one of my evening walks through The French Quarter. I know, I know. You don’t usually think of The Quarter this way. We usually tend to think of The Quarter as being very colorful. For the most part, it is. I think that’s why this picture reachedContinue reading “Silver Beads”

Big Clouds


As I’ve written 659,897 times, summertime is storm time in Southeast Louisiana. In fact, we had a big storm just yesterday. How big? Big enough that all of our smartphones started buzzing with flash flood alerts. I’d never heard that before. Either did the dogs. You should have seen them jump. That’s okay. I wasContinue reading “Big Clouds”

Concrete Canyons


I was looking at this picture that I made in Admiralty, Hong Kong and realized just how power the island had become. Most of the buildings that form the backdrop of this image are banks. major banks with their Asian home offices located in Hong Kong. The pinkish buildings in the foreground are housing estates,Continue reading “Concrete Canyons”
