You know this already. The tuba starts it. When you hear the tuba start playing bottom notes you know the second line is about to start. Not only do they sound the opening notes of the parade, but they start again when the parade resumes after taking a break along the route. I made these […]


Finally. I’ve managed to put together enough time to actually paint a portrait of Super Sunday . At least as I see it. It’s about celebration and joy and energy and color. It’s a little spiritual, traditional and ritualistic. It’s an incredible experience. When a lot of people say something like, “Only in New Orleans,” […]


Indian funerals. They are like nothing you’ve ever seen. If you get a chance to go, you should go. They are spiritual. They are magical. And, the are colorful. Keep in mind this is a very sacred event. Respect what you see. Respect who you see. And, pay your respects to the person who has […]


Big Chief John. Of The Original Wild Tchoupitoulas Tribe. I’ve been knowing him for at least six years. He was a Wildman then. His queen taught me how to present myself to a tribe who didn’t know me. And, how to behave when I work around suited indians. I see a lot of disrespect from […]


Slowly. Ever so slowly. Because, I’m still recovering from a long and gruelling weekend. The story so far. I’ve managed to download, backup and curate the images from four events. But, I seem to run out of steam early in the afternoon. So I cherry pick for you. At other times I sleep. I did […]

Sunday. Uptown Super Sunday. That’s my work for today. When I say work, I mean it. Big crowds. Rough and broken streets. Too many photographers who don’t know the rules of the street… But. It’s great fun. I get to see friends that I haven’t seen for a while. I get make some really good […]


I don’t often photograph sunsets. When I do. I either turn around and make a picture of where that glorious golden fell and illuminated something, or I make the foreground dominant. To me, a sunset picture without that is just a postcard. That’s why I photograph power poles. They aren’t pretty but they give the […]


A little more red. A little more color. A little more light. A little more joy. A little more celebration. And, the last of this series for you. I made a lot more pictures than I’ve shown you. If you’d like to see more just let me know. But, I reckon a weeks worth of […]
