New Orleans


Once, I was trapped in the CBD of New Orleans on another streetcar. I thought that I would make a few pictures from the window. This is the result including a hard vertical crop to give it some style, shape and class. My musical miss said something the other day that I wasn’t aware of.Continue reading “New Orleans”

Magical Quarter


I’m still working on my phone. They tell me this is the new world. Everyday is the new world or so it seems. I made this picture in The French Quarter. In New Orleans. Then, I played with the file to make it look like I was painting with light. That’s what you are seeing.Continue reading “Magical Quarter”

Fall Water


This is a quick post. Our supposedly rock solid never failing solar panels and massive storage batteries, failed. The company trotted right out when we called them. It’s some kind of condensed switch that toggle between the battery and the power center in the house. Or something like that. I guess it’s sort of aContinue reading “Fall Water”

But, they are getting a little dark. Even for me. So, I started looking around in my last few weeks of shooting andContinue reading “A Change of Season”

Bent, Broken and Rusted


While I was poking around in The Lower Ninth Ward and I found that odd little house displaying The American Flag, I also made pictures of broken glass, broken windows and rusty walls. I just sort of photographed whatever I saw. When I was editing my take — no, make that curating my take —Continue reading “Bent, Broken and Rusted”

A Special Day

People are driving on expressways. They are commuting. Apparently, they know what is coming. What sounds like an air raid sirenContinue reading “A Special Day”
