Winter


Winter. It’s coming. In Virginia, at least in our area, there are usually three or four snow storms over the course of the cold months. Unlike some places like Chicago or Boston where the snow piles up and piles up, the snow usually melts before the next storm arrives. You’d think that would be aContinue reading “Winter”

A Lot Of Work


So Cold. The temperature was well below freezing. I was well below freezing. I made this picture in Montreal in that dead of winter assignment I photographed mostly during the week between Christmas and New Year. In New Orleans we have a Vieux Carre. You know it as The French Quarter. Vieux Carre really meansContinue reading “A Lot Of Work”

Just Another Sunday


T his picture was made during one of the last times that I actually travelled around New Orleans. I went to the hospital to get my second vaccination against CoVid. Little did I know the trip and the injection was meaningless because of my “other” illness. At least one good thing came out of this.Continue reading “Just Another Sunday”

Fever Dreams


F antasy. Yes and no. New Orleans does occasionally get a little snow about once a decade whether it needs it or not. But, I made this snow. I pretty much made the entire picture which started out as blue. You know me. I like to fool around, tinker and play. I did all ofContinue reading “Fever Dreams”

Into The Mystic


S heesh. I started this post and forgot about it. Until now. I try to post at noon my time. Obviously, I’m late. Very late. Sorry about that. Let’s talk about stupidity and failure. There is a guy who posts as NOLAphotoguild on Instagram. Today he wrote an eight page screed about freedom. I betContinue reading “Into The Mystic”

The Sky Is Crying


W hat a weird, but peaceful day. We did a lot of cold weather cooking. But, mostly I slept. And slept. Here’s how it went in the afternoon. I thought I would rest my computer eyes and read something on real paper at around 4pm. I awoke at 8:45pm. By the time my head clearedContinue reading “The Sky Is Crying”

The Weather


F inally. It took a few days to find my footing but I knew that it would eventually come. So, as far as I’m concerned this is my first picture of the new year. It’s headed a little more in the direction that I’d like Storyteller to go, for as long as Storyteller exists. IContinue reading “The Weather”

On This One Night


C ome darkness, come light. The photograph comes from New Mexico. The words come from Virginia. They seem to cover most of my life for the last 15 years. On this Christmas Eve and — soon to be — Day, I’d like to wish every one of you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful newContinue reading “On This One Night”
