Road Color


Y esterday’s post was a bit bleak, but it was honest. Authentic, as we say today. We saw an example of it on Thursday night, when the January 6 Committee laid the insurrection at Trump’s feet. And, at his feet it will stay. I’m sure he’ll be hopping mad. Too bad. It was an exerciseContinue reading “Road Color”

Running Water


Water in motion. Clean. Pure. Healthy. And, wet.  Very wet. Cooling wet. Every now and then, I get away just a little. I find places like this one, which fit nicely into my never ending water project. This particular picture seems to speak to purity. That’s probably why I like it. I realized yesterday thatContinue reading “Running Water”

On Earth Day


Earth Day. Forty years or so. I know, I know. What does this picture have to do with Earth Day? Not much. Except I made it on either the first or second Earth Day at a festival. For the life of me, I cannot remember what this tube was supposed to teach. I do remember that the childrenContinue reading “On Earth Day”

Then, This.


Well. It arrived. A huge, nasty storm. Sideways pouring rain accompanied by high winds that were measured around 120 mph at the airport. It came fast. It came hard. By about 9:30 am the skies were dark. The light in the house looked like the light you see at pre-dawn. By 10:30am, we lost power. So,Continue reading “Then, This.”

The Levee


The levees that  border the Mississippi River are huge. They aren’t what you are thinking when you hear the word levee. These things are wide at the top and broad at the bottom. There is a pathway on the top that bikers, runners and walkers share. Dogs share it too. Sometimes service and maintenance trucks andContinue reading “The Levee”

Water


Water. We have a lot of it in swampville. We have so much water that the city government doesn’t really care about the main underground water pipes. We lose about 90,000,000 gallons of water per week due to leaks in the water pipe system. The state government tried to con, er, talk the federal governmentContinue reading “Water”

Running of The Bulls


No. I didn’t sneak over to Spain to photograph the real running of the bulls. Instead I worked in New Orleans. I made pictures at San Fermin in Nueva Orleans 2012. What the hell is that, you might ask? It’s yet another New Orleans event designed to get people out and partying. Apparently, there isContinue reading “Running of The Bulls”

Bourbon Street Rain


They rainy season is approaching fast in the gulf coast. But, that never stops the folks who go to Bourbon Street in New Orleans’ French Quarter. For the folks in the photograph, it looks to me that sometimes having fun is just hard work. 

Tiny Little Portraits


I’ve been photographing people for most of my career. A quick look at my history will tell you that some of my earliest work was published in the newspapers for whom I worked. Most of the images published in a newspaper are about people. It doesn’t matter what section of the newspaper that you findContinue reading “Tiny Little Portraits”
