  • The Krewe of Madness

    The picture is the thing. That’s what I say. No matter what happens make your picture. A wise old professor used to say that sometimes the hardest part of making a picture is getting there. He’s right. Even if you are working in your own city that is still true. When I photograph a Mardi […]

  • Still

    More skeletons. Seems like I could be on an archeological dig, the way dem bones keep turning up. Of course, I’m not, but they all have interesting shapes to me. Even though I don’t always pay attention to the numbers, they seem to have tanked this week as I started publishing Halloween pictures. It seems […]

  • Hanging Around

    In New Orleans, you see them everywhere. You see them in windows. On balconies. On the street. Well, maybe not on the street. But, if you look hard enough you might. In a city that loves Halloween, anything is possible. You can look around the city in every ward, on every street and you’ll see […]

  • And, So It Begins.

    I almost forgot. I’m a few days late in showing you Halloween. No worries. I’ve got it now. New Orleans is the right place to celebrate ghouls, ghosts and witches. During normal times it’s a bewitching place. Ghosts seem to be floating around everywhere. Walk down a deserted French Quarter street at about midnight and […]

  • Halloween

    It’s been spooky and scary for almost two years. Today as the day for evil, spooky and scary. It’s way different today. Enjoy the day. And, especially the night. Happy Halloween.

  • The Day (And Night) Arrives

    It’s here. One of the biggest days in New Orleans. Halloween. This light bringing skull leads the way. Or something like that. It moves. It shimmers. It’s just plain old weird. I made most of it during post production. I was up to my old tricks. Tinkering. Playing. This image started to emerge. It beckoned […]

  • Skull Duggery

    A little skull for you. Because we are into our long Halloween weekend. Because it seems normal in the swamp that I call home. Because I saw it. Because I made the picture. Simple. Like a skull. The picture. It’s pretty much as I described it. f5.6 and be there. I worked on it a […]

  • In the Neighborhood

    It seems like a long time ago. But, Super Sunday 2016 is less than a week old. Time seems to moving so fast these days. Generally, when I start looking for pictures on big days like the yearly gathering of Uptown Indians I start looking at “little” pictures. A picture that is somewhat symbolic, but not […]

  • Halloween. Day Seven

    One more picture to go. Tomorrow night I’ll be chasing the Krewe of Boo, New Orleans very own Halloween parade. And, because we always overdo everything in this city, I’ll just be roaming the streets of the Quarter on Halloween night when just about everybody goes crazy, as well as chasing spirits through the grave yards […]
