It Gets In Your Head


W e are coming to that time. Mardi Gras Day. The new people in New Orleans are trying to coin a new phrase. Deep Gras. It’s actually been around for awhile, but it meant something different. To me it means Mardi Gras all day every day, seeing friends you haven’t seen in years, meeting newContinue reading “It Gets In Your Head”

Song of the Seasons


I’ ve been feeling out of sorts for the past couple of days. I know where I should be. I know where I’m not. I have a kind of fear. I know that CoVid-19 is not going away any time soon. Most medical professionals who study this stuff are saying that it’s time to liveContinue reading “Song of the Seasons”

Out on the Street


M usic. You know me and music. You know me and brass bands. Here’s a little portfolio about just that. In all the years that I photographed second lines I cannot tell you how many times I made pictures of brass bands. I think it’s the passion that I like. The music matters because itContinue reading “Out on the Street”

I turned around to apologize mostly with my eyes because we couldn’t hear anything. They guy I stepped onContinue reading “All That You Dream”

Old Memories


I’m sorry that there is no text beyond these few words. I had a pretty well written piece that was complete. It was written, edited, the details were done. When I went to hit the schedule button, the button was light blue, not its normal color. It didn’t and wouldn’t work. Additionally, when I wentContinue reading “Old Memories”

Waiting


T his is another of those “found” pictures. I know where I made it. I have no idea why I did. Now that I see it, I like it. Maybe , it’s incompetence. Maybe I’m just as incompetent as the next guy. I’m starting to think that anything good that I’ve ever done was justContinue reading “Waiting”

Dancing To The Music


El Rancho de los Golondrinas harvest festival is one of the best in the nation. USA Today says the they are number two. I don’t know if that matters, but it sure is a lot of fun. You can eat, make food products like cider and watch the entertainment. Going there made a good dayContinue reading “Dancing To The Music”
