Among the Ruins
What’s behind. These pictures make my old urbex roaming look pretty good. I always felt safe. It was like playing soldier, always remembering two things. Slow is smooth and smooth fast. And, if you can see the enemy, the enemy can see you. I hate to think of the citizens of New Orleans as the…
A little more experimental art.
Other Portraits. Too.
Portraits. I don’t always make pictures of subjects that move my artistic sensibilities. Sometimes, I actually have to work for a living. These ten pictures are an example of my paid work. Work I rarely show you on Storyteller. Work that I did for various clients and agencies. Some was made as art directed stock.…
The Best of This Place
Another best of collection. This time it’s locations. Places. Cities. Nature. Details. As I was reviewing this work, a thought struck me. So much of it is either weather driven or made at the edges of the day. I just don’t take many pictures at high noon. I’ve preached about that enough in the past. Even…
There are rumors and rumors of rumors. Especially in New Orleans. I thought that I stumbled upon one of the so-called missing Banksy bits of wall graffiti and political commentary. Apparently, he came through New Orleans in 2008 and did his thing. Love his work or think it’s just graffiti defacing a wall, he did…
Yeah. Flying trains. Or, something like that. Prior to about 1937, in order to cross The Mississippi River, you had to use barges and ferries. Even the railroad companies had to do that. Along came the Kingfisher. Governor Huey. P. Long. He grew a lot of programs very quickly. He helped people who needed help.…
In The Forrest
So. We are still sick and getting sicker. But, that’s okay. It feels like your classic summer cold. I may have peaked and I think I might start getting better tomorrow. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. When my head is clear and I’m not coughing, I’ve been looking at older work. I’m not…
Back To Memphis
I’ve been doing a number of projects at one time. That includes traveling, photographing, managing someone else and working on a huge amount of post production of files that I’ve produced over the past month. When it comes to post production, mostly I’ve been working on the Memphis blues project. I work on it as…
A Lot of Restaurants
Being away from home and on the road is not always fun. But, this Memphis trip was great fun. Especially eating. Eating can be entertainment when you are out. We went to a couple of places on Beale Street. Most of them are real touristy, but we found Polly’s. Great Southern food. And, the very…
