Christmas on The Avenue


Keeping my promise is harder than I thought it would it be. Twenty five pictures about Christmas. Imagine that. What was I thinking? But, that’s a whole other story. I hope that I’ve written enough so you know a little about New Orleans from my perspective. There are a whole host of very different neighborhoods,Continue reading “Christmas on The Avenue”

A Merry Little


I really want to work something in about Dave Brubeck here. But, I promised you Christmas pictures. Twenty Five of them. So, I continue on my walk… unless something really huge happens. How huge. I don’t know. I’ll know if we get there. Anyway. This is my Christmas picture for the day. It was madeContinue reading “A Merry Little”

Candy Canes


So. Candy Canes. Candy Canes on Royal Street in The French Quarter. So far, I’ve been messing around with lights and not actually focusing on Christmas. As I move further into the month and more decorations are hung on the homes with care, I’m sure that balance will change a little bit. I’m also prettyContinue reading “Candy Canes”

Windows. Bright Lights.


When I post in WordPress, whatever I post is automatically uploaded to a couple of other social sites. One is Facebook, where it is posted three times. Yeah. I know. A little overkill. That’s okay. People see it. One of those people is my online buddy, Andy Richards. I have not yet had the pleasureContinue reading “Windows. Bright Lights.”

Christmas in California, or…


Well. I must admit this picture sort of looks that way. A California picture. Palm trees. Flat roofed contemporary house. Fully restored 1964 Mustang. But, noooooooooo… Lakeview. Located in a neighbor that  I think are called the bird streets. Yes. The streets are named after birds. But, it is certainly located on Robert E. LeeContinue reading “Christmas in California, or…”

Unknown Musician


I like this picture because — in my view — it is about every musician who walks in a second line parade. I suppose a point could be made that it makes this player anonymous, but I’m not seeing it that way. I see it as sort of an icon. So. A few points aboutContinue reading “Unknown Musician”

And The Rain Came


In Southeast Louisiana, as it is in all semi-tropical places, the spring and summer months are traditionally the rainy season. Even though a bit of April seemed dry, the region already has surpassed its normal rainfall for this time of year. Rain fell yesterday and even though the sun is shining — weakly — thisContinue reading “And The Rain Came”

Once A Day


Well, I’m looking back. But, not so far back given that March just ended yesterday. Please take a look at my small collection of pictures from what appears to be my never-ending project called, PAD, or picture a day. I started this thing four years ago. Every time that I reach the end of oneContinue reading “Once A Day”
