  • Something Like Paris

    P aris. When you stare long enough at this ancient apartment building you think you are in Paris. France, not Texas. Well, I do anyway. You might not. If you’ve wandered around the streets of Paris going into neighborhoods that aren’t on the tourist must see list, you’ll see buildings like this one. In The […]

  • He Went to Paris

    I ‘ve made a change. You’ll figure it out. It comes under the heading of who was I really hurting? In these pandemic days when many people aren’t able to travel, it’s possible to get a European fix right here in New Orleans. After all, we are a French, Spanish and American place. Much of […]

  • The Watcher

    This one. This is the picture I mentioned in yesterday’s Storyteller. The Christmas wish of “peace y’all” has been around for as long as I can remember. Except for some slight rewiring, the lights never change. This picture is probably four or five years old. But, I could wander down to Royal Street today and […]

  • Motion in New Orleans

    All motion. For years I made a career out of pictures like this one. Motion. Movement. Energy. It wasn’t hard to do. About 1/4 second at f/5.6 and I’d make a picture likes this one. But, that was the film days. When digital photography came into being sharpness was everything. That’s why mega pixels became […]

  • I’m Wondering

    Music takes me everywhere. I live in a city made of music. I live in a city made of ancient culture. I live in a city full of food. They all seem to be struggling. Musicians can barely earn a living. You see some amazing musicians playing on the street. Some are in between gigs. […]

  • Night in The French Quarter

    I admit it. I haven’t been to the French Quarter at night in a long while. Truth be told, I’m a little fearful. Carrying cameras and sort of hobbling around on a repaired hip makes me an easy target at a time in the city where it seems crime is everywhere. Yeah, New Orleans has […]

  • A Lot Like Christmas

    Christmas. A couple of days away. Time to show you New Orleans during the season. We don’t have snow. But, we have something else. Something special that I can’t really name. The Christmas season is my favorite time of year in the city. I’ll return to photo tutorials in the new year. And, “what the dog […]

  • Dark Night

    Another night in The French Quarter. This is what happens when you break the rules. You know. Don’t shoot into the light. Keep the light behind you. Use a flash at night. Why? Why? Why? Yeah. You’ll get a picture. It’ll likely be boring. If you take a chance something good might happen. Sort of […]
