My Back Pages


More about the reckoning. I’m starting to poke around a little deeper. It started last night or early this morning when I awoke from a delicious dream. It was about my newspaper days. For some reason the newspaper photo staff was made up of about everybody with whom I ever worked. We were sidelined. TheContinue reading “My Back Pages”

Thinking of a Place


Junkyards. I don’t know what got me thinking about this. Maybe it’s because I often watch documentaries on various streaming services. I’ve internalized the broken, the abandoned and the left behind. If truth be told, I’ve poking around abandoned stuff long before the dawn of Netflix. It’s always interested me. It could be because whenContinue reading “Thinking of a Place”

More Road, Some Sky


Once again. A road and sky picture. It’s not really what it seems. It looks like I am out on some distant road. Not really. I was running errands. I drove out to Jefferson Parish. I was getting ready to drive home. I realized that I was driving up and over a railroad bridge, whichContinue reading “More Road, Some Sky”

Once Upon A Time


Ah, dusk. The picture almost looks like it could have been made in France. It wasn’t. It was made at a park and baseball stadium now called, The Shrine on Airline. To me and many others, we think that’s a stupid name. It is home for the next two weeks to a AAA baseball team,Continue reading “Once Upon A Time”

Shelter From The Storm


“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.” So wrote Bob Dylan. Where is that shelter? Again, a year to the day of the Pittsburgh shooting, and not more than two weeks from the last mass shooting, a Jewish synagogue was attacked. Four wounded. One dead. A woman died attempting to protectContinue reading “Shelter From The Storm”

Another Way


I haven’t been out this way in a long time. Usually, it’s for a vet trip. Or, to buy technology. The weather has been incredible, so I thought that I would take a drive along River Road. I needed a little break from what has been mostly inside work, so off I went. It wasContinue reading “Another Way”

Skytrain Three


The third time is a charm. They say. Maybe. It does help to return to the scene of the crime, er, picture. Eventually, I’ll get it right. This may be the best of the skytrain pictures, mostly because of the clouds, the light and the golden color. Also, because I finally found the right angleContinue reading “Skytrain Three”

Whenever You Need It


Another storm picture. Rain never stops us. I think a lot of us were fooled because we weren’t ready for the intensity of the rainfall. Never trust the weather people on your local news. They mean well, but if I got about 90% of what I said wrong, I’d fire myself. I’ll talk about thisContinue reading “Whenever You Need It”

Once Again… Into the Sky


Sky train number two. One of the benefits of staying in one place is that you get to see some of the same subjects in a different light. Yes. That means the physical and the metaphysical. The old Robert Capa saying, “if the picture isn’t good enough then you weren’t close enough,” really has twoContinue reading “Once Again… Into the Sky”
