There Must Have Been a Storm


It looks like a whole lotta work. You’ve seen the place. Normally, I make a Zen-like picture with something like one leaf twirling around a sparkling bit of water. That’s not what we saw yesterday. The winds ripped the leaves from the trees. The rain pushed them into the little stream. The stream backed up.Continue reading “There Must Have Been a Storm”

Then, This Happened


Then. As dusk fell last night, we saw this. A little peace on a mostly nasty day. The dogs, who see stuff, are serious water wimps.  I have to be careful when I write that. They love to swim in the pool. They have no problem jumping into a smelly swamp and coming out muddy.Continue reading “Then, This Happened”

On August 29


August 29, 2005. That was a day most of us who live in New Orleans will never forget. Hurricane Katrina blew in, and made landfall at Buras, Louisiana. The levees broke and 80 percent of the city was under water. August 29, 2017. Hurricane Harvey, now Tropical Storm Harvey, finally makes a turn away fromContinue reading “On August 29”

French Quarter Windows


I see things. Details. Windows. Nooks. Crannies. I’ve probably photographed this store widow five or six times. Usually at night. Evening light, plus the lights in the window, make these mannequin legs look sort of garish. In daylight they look just fine. Toning down the color a little and adding a little softness makes themContinue reading “French Quarter Windows”

Sunday Glow


A little different look. Not only did I make this picture during normal daylight hours, but I used completely different production software. Because. Two reasons. I do like to experiment and tinker. But, my usual software, On1, has some new downloaded upgrades. The company seems to be struggling when it comes to new products. EspeciallyContinue reading “Sunday Glow”

Jackson Square


First and foremost. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the people who live along the Gulf Coast in Texas. Twelve years ago, they came for us. Now, it’s our turn. Whatever they need. Whenever they need it. You’d have to have been here and gone through a major storm to really feel it deepContinue reading “Jackson Square”

Working


I was walking by. I asked. She nodded. It’s not what you think. She’s a small business owner. She’s the cleaning person. The bartender. The server. The manager. The book-keeper. From the looks of this, she works about 17 hours a day. Probably six days a week. Sounds fun. Or, not. I suppose anything worthContinue reading “Working”

Okay, Okay…


Well. I guess you would rather see art, than documentation. Fine with me. I’d rather make art. I’ll save the documentation for my agents. Let’s see what I can do with some of the work I produced on Monday. I’ll start with this picture. I was on my way to The French Quarter, when theContinue reading “Okay, Okay…”

The French Quarter


I took a stroll in The French Quarter. I made a few “traditional” pictures. I’m pretty sure that will make my agencies smile. Doing the work and walking around the Quarter made me happy. Yes. It was hot. It was humid. And, the eclipse was all but invisible there. But, it wasn’t crowded. And, theContinue reading “The French Quarter”
