The Great Chase


Once upon a time I used to make pictures like this on a regular basis. I’m not sure why I stopped. It wasn’t a conscience decision. I just sort of let it fade away. I’m thinking that before I slip out of New Orleans for good I should wander around the city making these kindContinue reading “The Great Chase”

All A Reflection


Yesterday is gone. And, good riddance. It started bad and it ended worse. You didn’t see me here because my Cox modem/router failed. They wanted $75 because I didn’t have customer care. Okay, okay. I have a good idea of what this gear costs. But, when I said yes to having a technician visit, heContinue reading “All A Reflection”

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 whereContinue reading “Narrow Way”

Because


Because… why not? I was working on the original version of this picture in color. A light bulb went off. Experiment in black and white, I thought. So, I did. I liked it. I smoothed it out a bit. I helped you to see some of the rain drops and that was it. I’ve beenContinue reading “Because”

In the Summertime


In the summertime. This picture does it for me. This is what I meant by a summertime picture.  My pal in France liked yesterday’s picture of a tree and said that was summer to her. I think that’s a good place filler. A place to get started. A place to wrap my mind around whatContinue reading “In the Summertime”

Drive By Truckers


The deep freeze is really 42 degrees. One day the talking weather people heads will get it right. One day. Last night they were predicting starting the day with temperatures in the low twenties. That may be true somewhere. They said we might have snow. Somewhere else too. Wind was going to coming ripping through.Continue reading “Drive By Truckers”

This, Then That


I got out of the car. I took the American flag picture. I didn’t like the framing so I got back into the car and changed lenses. If I hadn’t done that I wouldn’t have looked in the right hand side mirror at an odd angle. I would not have seen the reflection picture. SoContinue reading “This, Then That”

Mirror


Walking. That’s the best way. You can see things. Details. Little bits of stuff. Life. Evidence of life. On this little walk through the French Quarter, I was mostly just chasing light. While I was doing that, little things found me. Like this mirror just standing on the street wrapped in beads waiting. For me.Continue reading “Mirror”

This is What Happens.


This is my secret fast way home when I’m out in Jefferson Parish. I use it to avoid traffic on I-10 when I’m going to the airport. Usually, I can zip along at just about any speed I want. It’s called Earhart Expressway. Yep. Named after the famous aviator. Or, Aviatrix in the terminology of theContinue reading “This is What Happens.”
