A Fine Day


You know that I don’t usually work during mid-day hours. But, every now and then rules are made to be broken. Even if I made the rules. Which is a whole other discussion of another day. Look at it. The scene was perfect. The red carriages contrasting against the fresh greens of spring and theContinue reading “A Fine Day”

Everything Ends Where It Begins. Two.


I thought I’d end this week as it began. Mardi Gras Indians. Super Sunday. Portraits. Great Faces. Colorful Suits. And, Tomorrow? Something different. Maybe something with a little spring in the air. We’ll see.

Then, there’s the mystery. For most of us in New Orleans, there is a St. Charles Avenue. All theContinue reading “Mystery Solved. Sort Of.”

Abandoned


I was driving in an area of New Orleans where I rarely go. I think it’s a part of St. Thomas. Actually, it was after we ate all that Vietnamese food that I posed about earlier this week. I saw this row of collapsing structures and liked what it looked like. To me, it feltContinue reading “Abandoned”
