The Real Thing


Streetcars and Growth Today I’ll table the A&I discussion for another day. That doesn’t mean that I’m giving up learning and growing. No. Never. Instead, today, I’m working on designing pages within the WordPress block system. Even though I’m still not much of a fan, I’m starting to understand how it works. It’s a complicatedContinue reading “The Real Thing”

Don’t Call Them Trollies


N ew Orleans is known for a lot of things. One of them is our streetcars. The green streetcars run along St.Charles Avenue and, eventually, Carrolton. They are the most of famous of the two. The red cars run up Canal Street and eventually end up at City Park. This is little portfolio came togetherContinue reading “Don’t Call Them Trollies”

That Time


W e’ve been very busy. So, I keep forgetting. With two days, there is no more forgetting. There is only Christmas. So, I’ll start with an elderly picture that I made on the avenue. I’ll build from there. There is good news. Music is magic. The short people are here on their way to DisneyContinue reading “That Time”

Little Green


T here’s no mystery to this picture. See the subject, talk to him for a minute and ask if I could photograph him. But, I wanted to open up the picture and turn it into something the verges on the edge of high key. That meant dropping out a lot of background detail which IContinue reading “Little Green”

All I Want


G reen Streetcars. They travel from Canal Street, along St. Charles Avenue, making a turn on Carrolton where they come to their terminus after about a mile or so. Many local people use them to commute to work, to shop, to visit friends, and to go to appointments. It’s real live public transportation just likeContinue reading “All I Want”


Second lines. All on a Sunday afternoon. All joy. Pure fun. Like going to church. Photographing second lines is hard work. Working in the middle of one is like being in a rugby scrum. You trot, back peddle, dodge and weave. You walk a long way. If you do it right, you’re tired, dripping inContinue reading

Streetcars


Streetcar. In New Orleans, we have streetcars. Streetcars. Not trolleys. Not trains. Streetcars. I wouldn’t have my back up, but a women with whom I attended high school is in town with four of her “girlfriends.” They finally left the French Quarter and rode up St. Charles Avenue. On a green streetcar. A good thingContinue reading “Streetcars”

184 Degrees


Good Fellas Second Line. The children go first. Then the adults. It’s a two division second line. Thankfully. Even though the second line walked forever, it was on the smallish side. A good thing, because as a friend of mine wrote about another outdoor event in the city, it was 184 degrees out. Not really,Continue reading “184 Degrees”

St. Charles Avenue


St. Charles Avenue. I didn’t travel on this street very much during the parade season. I usually seek out little back streets to make it to and from home. But, I happened to pass by a few days ago. I was truly amazed to see the little city of parade ladders, folding chairs, folk art andContinue reading “St. Charles Avenue”
