A couple of my editors have more or less asked for the same kinds of images. They’d like to see Americana, Regional Details, Mom and Pop businesses and a sort of general New Orleans run down sensibility. I don’t think they meant for me to put all of those symbols in one picture. But, I […]


I have no idea why Brad Pitt wants to pour his own money into rebuilding the Lower Ninth Ward. But, he does. He’s building homes for people who lost their own homes. That may be all that really matters. There are about a dozen homes built and occupied already. There are another five or seven […]

More from my New Orleans walk up. The Clover Grill. Big Food, all day and night long in The French Quarter. This is where morning people come from big breakfasts and late night drinkers come for breakfast to soak up the alcohol. They usually arrive at different times. The Clover is sort of a local […]


Since I am going to New Orleans next week and we are only two weeks away from the forth annivers – ary of Hurricane Karina making landfall, I thought I would publish this image. It’s actually a little under four years old. It was taken after my second evacuation, this time, from Lake Charles, Louisiana […]
