Home. This picture is less than two hours old. At least it is from Noon, Central Daylight Time. The time in New Orleans. Yes. I know what I say about letting a picture marinate. That’s my theory. It’s not a rule. Even if it was, rules are meant to be broken. If you have an […]


There are days like this one. A quiet day. After a long trip. I don’t know if it’s so much that I want to be quiet, or I feel like I have no idea where I am. Or, what time it is. You’ve probably had days like that. After a certain amount of decompression — […]


Still in the Lower 9th Ward. Nature changed this place. With a storm. A storm that will live forever in our hearts, minds and souls. And, in history books. She gave us a new start. She showed us some truths. There are places we should rebuild. There are places that we shouldn’t. This is one […]


I go back. To this place of flood waters and death. I go back every three or four months. Just to see how things are progressing. The Lower 9th Ward was destroyed during the flooding after Hurricane Katrina. The levees broke. The levees that were built by the Army Corps of Engineers were not properly […]

This is what I thought. If I’m changing the last series to something new, it really ought to be new. Something different. Something unexpected. Something in black and white. So. Here it is. The picture is about two months old. I made it when I was taking a couple of guys around New Orleans while […]


Yes. A conclusion. For now, I think this series is done. Over the course of the last month and a half I’ve made about forty of these layered images. That’s a lot. In a very short time. Normally, that would be about two years worth of work. It’s time to move on. I’ve had a […]


Another picture that just sort of sat in my archives. Or, really never made it that far. It sat in RAW files waiting to be worked on. At some later date. Another picture that speaks to summer. Summer in the south. As the late, great Allen Toussaint sang… southern nights. There is something special about […]


Yes. Dog days. As summer continues to roll on we get to a place called the “dog days.” It’s a time when the air is too hot for even dogs to wander about. They hide out in the shade. If there is a body of water, they swim. They don’t ramble about in the mid-day […]
