  • Narrow Way

    All about rain. No. This isn’t Hurricane Sally. These pictures were made during a typical gulf coast summer storm. Usually, the humidity collects and sometime in the afternoon all that water needs a place to go. It’s interesting to see. These pictures were made in a grocery store parking. It was raining pretty hard where […]

  • Where Time Stands Still

    There is no reasoning with a hurricane season. Most of the lower half of the state is getting prepared. Officials say that if we aren’t done by noon we’ll likely be working in the rain. Hurricane Marco will make landfall sometime later today. As it stands, it is barely a Category One hurricane. But, the […]

  • Hurricane Season

    Yesterday was a big day. Oh, in the grand scheme of news it pretty much went unnoticed. After all, we are about to be decimated by a new tax scheme (I use that word intentionally), we are on the very edge of a nuclear war, the man known as the president is not only corrupt, […]

  • Rain & Other Stuff

    A little inspiration. My writing usually comes from something that I’ve read or saw a day or two before I publish a post. Whatever new information I picked up spins around in my brain for a bit and comes back out in the form of a few comments on Storyteller. Normally I write about whatever […]

  • Sticks and…

    Yep. It’s Hurricane Season. We have reached the point in the summer when the conditions are just about right. Very hot and humid air. Tropical rains. The Gulf is heated up enough to sustain a storm should it get there. While I was poking around Hoffman Triangle and the surrounding central City, I stumbled upon […]

  • The Nature of Things.

    So. Just so you know, hurricane season starts in just 26 days. The good folks at NOAA are predicting a big storm year. They say there will be 18 named storms and 9 hurricanes. They’ll probably get that wrong. But, still that’s a big year. Being a child of the last big storm, I get […]

  • The Rain

    Yes. It’s August in Southeaster Louisiana. That means lots of rain storms. Lots of heavy rain coming out of nowhere. And, once in a while, a tropical storm or  –worse — the threat of a hurricane. And, sometimes… oh, never mind. Katrina is history. That said, I have long believed that pictures are everywhere. You […]

  • What Is It Like To?

    Normally, the phrase “what is it like to” is a way of kick starting a blocked mind. I use it to begin photographing when I think I have a photographic block… like a writer’s block. Since I work so steadily, I’ve found that in the past couple of years I don’t have to use it […]

  • And The Rain Came

    In Southeast Louisiana, as it is in all semi-tropical places, the spring and summer months are traditionally the rainy season. Even though a bit of April seemed dry, the region already has surpassed its normal rainfall for this time of year. Rain fell yesterday and even though the sun is shining — weakly — this […]
