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”

The Great Chase


Once upon a time I used to make pictures like this on a regular basis. I’m not sure why I stopped. It wasn’t a conscience decision. I just sort of let it fade away. I’m thinking that before I slip out of New Orleans for good I should wander around the city making these kindContinue reading “The Great Chase”

Home, Not Home


Y es. I was taking you through my travels, but soon New Orleans will fade into my rambles. I’d like to say I have mixed emotions about leaving, but I don’t. The city is very broken. We are on pace to have the highest number of murders per capita. That means we’ll have around 350Continue reading “Home, Not Home”

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

Learning


New Orleans This is a test. I’m trying to learn how to do combined multiple picture designs. Combined, because I’ve crashed two templates. I’ve also used some older pictures that those of you who are new to Storyteller may never have seen. They highlight a couple of tourist areas. Places that some of you mightContinue reading “Learning”

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”

Streetcar During the Blue Hour


Streetcars. Streetcars are considered to be a huge tourist attraction. With the proper pass you can ride all over the city. You can catch a ride somewhere near The French Quarter and head Uptown on the green cars. They are not air-conditioned. Or, you can can catch the red cars, which are newer and air-conditioned.Continue reading “Streetcar During the Blue Hour”

Streetcar in Blue


Once again. Blue Hour. You know, that time right after the sun sets. When the light is so blue. This is also a style in which I used to work. Impressionism. I’m taking a journey into my past. That’s right. I’m going back there. Here’s why. I used to do this a lot. I kind ofContinue reading “Streetcar in Blue”
