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”

Dim Lights, Thick Smoke


T here’s a story behind every door, but I don’t know what they are. A good guess is that this place received some of Hurricane Katrina’s flood waters, but not that much because a lot of Central City is above sea level which makes it that last great ungentrified piece of land in the city.Continue reading “Dim Lights, Thick Smoke”

Naked To The Eye


M ore changes. I knew that I wanted to design some kind of gallery. I’ve done it in the past. Good luck with that. Now the gallery template is divided by columns so the images are divided into long thin columns. A casual viewer wouldn’t know what they were seeing unless they they opened eachContinue reading “Naked To The Eye”

Someone and Someone


I talk a lot about nature just wanting stasis. This is a great example of that. The house was damaged during Katrina. The doors and windows are boarded up. That didn’t stop nature from retaking that little piece of land. Maybe one day the owner will return or there will be a new owner. They’llContinue reading “Someone and Someone”

A Little Change


This is a dramatic change. Mostly, I’ve been posting faux nature pictures as they relate to the season. But, I downloaded an upgrade to my OnOne editing and processing software. I just had to test it. I had to take it for a spin. You know, kick the tires. I remade an image that IContinue reading “A Little Change”

That’s Alright


I saw this place on the way to the second line. I’ve seen it before. It just never quite looked so dramatic. And, I never stooped to make a picture. Even for a few minutes. This time I did. I photographed it at about 4pm in what was pretty bright sun. Not a great time.Continue reading “That’s Alright”

The Neighborhood


The neighborhood. Just a street in Mid City. Not far from the old laundry building. The buildings are sort of typical of some older houses that have been handed down from generation to generation. And, survived the storm. Survived bad weather. Hot weather. Humid weather. So is each generation’s stuff. Typical. It survived. What were grandpa’s things wasContinue reading “The Neighborhood”

Ruins


Before I write anything more, a quick word of caution. If you are a Mac user, DO NOT download the latest their operating system called El Captain. It was bad from the original download. Now, two versions later, it’s worse. It’s slow. It doesn’t recognize other manufacturer’s software that I need to do my job,Continue reading “Ruins”

Cease Fire


I was on my way to the Saturday second line and looking for place to park, when I stumbled upon this little scene. So, I parked across the street. I saw that sign. Cease Fire. That campaign is at least four years old. It seems as appropriate to today as it was back then. NothingContinue reading “Cease Fire”
