This is It. The Best of The Culture.

This is it. Three days of “best of pictures.” At least that’s what I think today. Tomorrow, I may not like any of the 36 pictures that I’ve shown you over the past three days. You’ve seen most these New Orleans culture pictures in the past, I think. Some were images in posts. Others were partsContinue reading “This is It. The Best of The Culture.”

The Best of This Place

Another best of collection. This time it’s locations. Places. Cities. Nature. Details. As I was reviewing this work, a thought struck me. So much of it is either weather driven or made at the edges of the day. I just don’t take many pictures at high noon. I’ve preached about that enough in the past. EvenContinue reading “The Best of This Place”

The Best of Falling Down.

The best. Or not. That is so subjective. But, it’s my subject. Hmmmm. Just about every kind of media shows their best of something or other. This is the best of the ruined, abandoned and falling apart buildings that I founder the course of 2016. There are a few more, but I created my ownContinue reading “The Best of Falling Down.”

Hot 8

Not like yesterday. Thankfully. I don’t think I could write about something so tragic. So sad. Again. At least, not two days in a row. So, this second line was small by comparison. It was tight and compact. It wound its way through Central City. It was also a pretty happy event. I decided that one pictureContinue reading “Hot 8”

About A New Ancestor

Jazz Funerals. I’m really starting to dislike that term. They are funerals. They are about death. They are about mourning. They are about understanding that all things must pass. And, that we in New Orleans accept that death as part of life. We mourn. We celebrate. If you are visiting and want to see our cultureContinue reading “About A New Ancestor”

These People

These people. In this house. Our house. Not the house in the picture.  That house. These people. They don’t like my minimalist ways. It’s how I work. It’s how I think. I’d rather strip things down than build them up. I’d rather get to the point, rather than make people search for the point. That includesContinue reading “These People”

Another Season

This doesn’t look like the kind of place that I’d use for preparing and paying my taxes. I happened to see it on the way to some place else. I’m always kind of fascinated by these old, run down, beaten up small businesses. It appears that the owner of this place works on taxes everyContinue reading “Another Season”
