All That You Dream


A s I recall, it was hot. A lot of us were sucking down water and sweating it out as fast as we drank it. We were tripping all over each other. I stepped on someone. I turned around to apologize mostly with my eyes because we couldn’t hear anything. They guy I stepped onContinue reading “All That You Dream”

What Remains


W hat remains, indeed. Clean up continues while I wander around taking pictures. In this case, pictures of floating leaves in a pool that had already been cleared of a lot of storm junk, which brings me to the topic of junk. When you are sitting around in a hot house at night with littleContinue reading “What Remains”

Hot, Like Fire


Flambeaux. New Orleans is steeped in traditions. I could go on forever, but let’s limit it to the subject at hand. Once up on a time in the last century twice removed, many streets were not lighted. Black men lit the streets with flaming torches. They worked for tips. They made enough money that thereContinue reading “Hot, Like Fire”

You Ain’t Going Nowhere


Some say that I don’t like sunsets. Those folks would be wrong. I like sunsets. I like what they represent. I like their color. I like their power. I like them when they are peeking through trees. I like their light. I like to see where their light falls. But, those folks do speak withContinue reading “You Ain’t Going Nowhere”

Summers End Days


While I was walking. I spotted these tiny little pink flowers. They are located high up, growing from a sort of ivy that covers a chain link fence. As we enter into September, this is the time of the summer season when most flowers are dying. Green trees look faded. Not these flowers. They areContinue reading “Summers End Days”

Summer Nights


Golden light. Southern light. I made this image in a neighborhood of the Ninth Ward called Holy Cross. . I saw this woman riding off into the sunset so I followed her in my car. When I got close enough to her, I got out and made a quick ten frames or so. She heardContinue reading “Summer Nights”

New Orleans Heat


So hot. So damn hot. There is a twitter tag called #neworleansheat. New Orleans heat doesn’t like us. And, we don’t like it. I made this picture at about 7:00pm. The all seeing dog wanted a walk. I convinced her to wait until she couldn’t. Off we went. I made this picture at about ourContinue reading “New Orleans Heat”

Summer Morning


Does it? Or, doesn’t it? If the picture says hot, or early morning heat, then I made another summer project picture.  If it doesn’t, that’s okay. I made a picture that I like. A lot. By accident. My pal on the internet scene, Montana Rose, posted a picture yesterday that she said she made byContinue reading “Summer Morning”

In The Summer


Despite the heat of summer, I actually like the season. I like the rich greens. I like the cooling shade. I even like the torrential rains that cool the air and knock down the humidity temporarily. Of course, in the heat of summer, what falls down must rise up… in the form of ground humidity.Continue reading “In The Summer”
