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”

Spooky


The time of year. Spooky. Ghostly. A good time of year when things aren’t what they seem. This is another short post. We have power, but no internet. Our gear is new and works fine. It turns out that our internet provider took some heavy hits. They are working to repair the damage but whoContinue reading “Spooky”

A Mystery To Me


The waiting is the hardest part. So, said Tom Petty. I’m trying to get my work done by about noon because Hurricane Zeta should be along a few hours later. That means I should shut down this main machine. And, close the lower storm shutters. The all seeing dog didn’t like being out this morning.Continue reading “A Mystery To Me”

Must Be The Season Of The Witch


Spooky. Scary. That’s the season. The season of the witch. It’s really scary around swampville today. Sometime early in the morning my phone went crazy with a 36 hour hurricane warning. You have no idea how it feels when you get any kind of notification like that. Your heart pounds. You are wide awake. YourContinue reading “Must Be The Season Of The Witch”

Still


More skeletons. Seems like I could be on an archeological dig, the way dem bones keep turning up. Of course, I’m not, but they all have interesting shapes to me. Even though I don’t always pay attention to the numbers, they seem to have tanked this week as I started publishing Halloween pictures. It seemsContinue reading “Still”

Another Halloween


Escape. Escape from the French Quarter to Uptown. When this ghostly apparition got there he couldn’t figure out what to do, so he started playing basketball. When nobody else arrived, he looked at me — your trusty photographer — and hissed. Then, he pointed. I left quickly. His yellow eyes were watching every step IContinue reading “Another Halloween”

Hanging Around


In New Orleans, you see them everywhere. You see them in windows. On balconies. On the street. Well, maybe not on the street. But, if you look hard enough you might. In a city that loves Halloween, anything is possible. You can look around the city in every ward, on every street and you’ll seeContinue reading “Hanging Around”

And, So It Begins.


I almost forgot. I’m a few days late in showing you Halloween. No worries. I’ve got it now. New Orleans is the right place to celebrate ghouls, ghosts and witches. During normal times it’s a bewitching place. Ghosts seem to be floating around everywhere. Walk down a deserted French Quarter street at about midnight andContinue reading “And, So It Begins.”
