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”

Can’t Let Go


I started this day thinking about the things I really like. Some are obvious. Some less so. There’s photography. Art. Design. Color. There’s baseball. The New York Yankees. F1 Motorsports. Music of all genres. Live music. Recorded music. There is travel. Other countries. Southeast Asia. Hong Kong. China. The American Southwest. Virginia. Even New Orleans.Continue reading “Can’t Let Go”

Tell Me Why


T hey say it’s all in the eyes. That the eyes are the windows to the soul. Who am I to disagree? I haven’t been on the street for a long time. Y’all know why. It’s driving me crazy. I don’t like being cooped up. I’m not sure I’ll ever return to the street inContinue reading “Tell Me Why”

Down On The Corner


A s you know by now I change my mind a lot. Whaddya want from me? Heh. I’m an artist. Or, so I think. I will still do my experimental layering, but those images come together when they are ready. I tried to do a couple yesterday. They were forced and it showed. I alsoContinue reading “Down On The Corner”

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”

The Calling


N ew Orleanians understand death. We mourn and we celebrate. We actually like our cemeteries. Personally, I like the older funky ones. I like cemeteries like this one that is located in the middle of a working class neighborhood. It’s a Jewish cemetery called, Garden of Prayer. It’s fairly old. I’ve roamed around the cityContinue reading “The Calling”

I Asked For Water


What a day. The fire did not only jump out of the frying pan, but it burned the house down. No. Not literally. A photographer who is known to many of us and who has helped us in career advancement just resigned from Magnum in lieu of being voted out of the cooperative. Let meContinue reading “I Asked For Water”

On This Day


Wow! What a busy weekend. For the of us who are in New Orleans we are think about the Mardi Gras parades that won’t happen. The celebrations in the quarter that will be muted. But, wait. There’s more. We are in the midst of the Lunar New Year. Or, as some say, the Chinese NewContinue reading “On This Day”

In The 504


Everyone knows that it’s the high school bands that I like best when they roll during a Mardi Gras parade. The floats are fine. The Rolling Elvi are fun. The motorcycle riders are fun. But, the marching bands. That’s the thing for me. They combine three wonderful elements. Music. Energy, And, color. If there wasContinue reading “In The 504”
