May 31. Wrapping It Up.

The end of the month. Time for a little wrap up. Lots of pictures to show you, and this isn’t all of them. But, I do try to keep current. I do try to show you newish work. Every now and then, I dip back into my files… usually when I haven’t been around enoughContinue reading “May 31. Wrapping It Up.”

A Little Magic

Yes. A little magic. In truth, it’s a combination of three things…  A pretty much abandoned neighborhood created by Hurricane Katrina, some local taggers and nature. As we all know, nature always wins. It doesn’t want anything except stasis. How can it not win? Stasis really isn’t all that much. Just balance. But, it’ll do whateverContinue reading “A Little Magic”

Well, I’m Having Fun

Yes. I am having fun. Looking at pictures in different ways is a lot of fun. Typically, I document people, places and things. Usually I do a little bit with them in post production. Sometimes, not.  Obviously, I’ve been adding a little more to the pictures than just a “little bit.”  To tell you the truth,Continue reading “Well, I’m Having Fun”

And, Again… Experiments.

Dead Flowers. It’s a song and more. It’s about a cemetery. It’s a place. It’s a feeling. “Take me down little Susie, take me down I know you think you’re the queen of the underground And you can send me dead flowers every morning Send me dead flowers by the U.S. mail Say it withContinue reading “And, Again… Experiments.”

An Impressionistic Portrait.

It’s a long story. But, I made some new friends who came to New Orleans for a visit. They wanted to see my view of things. The view I sometimes call “Ray’s hellish view of New Orleans.” I met them at a second line, but eventually my tour lead us back to where they wereContinue reading “An Impressionistic Portrait.”

Summer Starts

Yes. Yes. Yes. I know that summer officially begins on June 21. At 12:38pm EDT. That’s Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year. From there it all goes downhill. Or, not. But, in The United States most people feel like it starts on this long weekend. Memorial Day. That weekend. One of the leastContinue reading “Summer Starts”

Way Out In The Ninth

I’m not even sure what to tell you about this place. So, there’s this. It’s a former double located in the Lower 9th Ward. It was likely destroyed by the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina. That’s all I know. For sure. Here’s what I don’t know. It’s almost spotless inside. Most of these places are litteredContinue reading “Way Out In The Ninth”

Cemetery Stroll

I took a walk. Well, not exactly. I took some friends on a tour of New Orleans. My New Orleans. The more hellish side. We started with Lafayette Cemetery No. 2. It’s located in Central City. In the past, this wasn’t the safest place in the world. But, like most of New Orleans, things areContinue reading “Cemetery Stroll”

Southern Feel.

The South. It has a look. A feel. A smell. All its own. In the summer it’s hot. Sticky. Humid. Wet. And, summer lasts a while. From March to Christmas. In the winter, it cools off a bit. But, the humidity doesn’t go away. The wetness doesn’t go away. It manifests itself in fog. 40Continue reading “Southern Feel.”
