Accidentally Late Night


This is an accidental artwork. But, I love it. It’s another “found” picture, but this time it was lost intentionally. I didn’t really see the potential because it was so “grainy.” Once I opened it and looked at it again I realized that it was worthy of… something. Something means to me that it couldContinue reading “Accidentally Late Night”

The Beginning


T he beginning. The very first time. I was traveling in New York City with a couple of friends. When we got to Times Square I started making a few pictures. One of those friends, a well thought of National Geographic photographer — a real one, not one of those who had the luck toContinue reading “The Beginning”

What Does It Mean?


L ouisiana is leading the country in Covid-19 infections. We are nowhere near 70% vaccination rate. Orleans Parish beat the CDC in mandating masks indoors again. Now I’m starting to hear whispers in the wind that musical venues will close again and that includes both Jazzfest and French Quarter Fest. The loss of both ofContinue reading “What Does It Mean?”

Almost Home


T he road. It may come soon enough. Oh, I’m not thinking about traveling for work. There is no work. I just need to be away from this place for a while. Or, forever. I’m going talk about Portia, my friend who was murdered a couple of days ago. But, first, a little bit aboutContinue reading “Almost Home”

Box of Rain


We are opening. A little. The governor said that we will open the state according to phase one on May 16. They mayor argreed. That’s exciting. It seems like Jefferson Parish opened a little too early. The fine folks who live there decided to have some fun. In one day the amount of cases doubledContinue reading “Box of Rain”


New Orleans. The rainy season comes in the summer. Sometimes, we get a little rain every day. Rain might not fall for long. But, it will fall. And, usually, it starts out falling pretty hard. That’s okay. I think what most people dislike is not the rainfall, but the inevitable soupy humidity that follows. AsContinue reading

Round Things


A very interesting thing happens when I complain loudly on Storyteller. WordPress changes their ways. A few of you tried to help out. I really appreciate that. Way more than you know. The solutions that you offered didn’t work out because under the basic formatting, Laskowitzpictures.org looks a little different from your formatting. Mine costsContinue reading “Round Things”

Season’s End


Holiday season. These are my last two pictures of the 2016 holiday season. I didn’t make a lot of “big” Christmas pictures this year. I didn’t feel like it. As we all know, the passing year was a rough one.  2016 was hard on everybody. I guess it shows. Especially, since I believe all artContinue reading “Season’s End”

In the Dark


A Christmas night visit turned into a picture. A kind of spooky little picture. Full of shadows and mystery. Hiding places. And, fog. This is what happens when you take a camera everywhere. I anticipated taking a few Christmas pictures with old friends. But, on the way I saw light peeking through shadows and couldn’t resist.Continue reading “In the Dark”
