Magazine Street


On my way. To someplace else. Actually, I was sort of circling around. Going home from a casual meeting with writer Sharon Cathcart at the Hotel Montelone’s Carousel Bar. She is in town for a writer’s meeting. We’d talked back and forth via comments here and on her blog. We decided to meet. We chattedContinue reading “Magazine Street”

Been in the Storm


We are a wet place. Even with all of our rainfall, summer dries us out a bit. I’d call this a kind of levee. Normally, the water level is about equal on both sides. Look at this picture. It’s not even close. Even the side wall is starting to dry out. With our daily rain,Continue reading “Been in the Storm”

That’s Alright


I saw this place on the way to the second line. I’ve seen it before. It just never quite looked so dramatic. And, I never stooped to make a picture. Even for a few minutes. This time I did. I photographed it at about 4pm in what was pretty bright sun. Not a great time.Continue reading “That’s Alright”

Valley of Silent Men


Day two. The Valley of the Silent Men second line in Central City. New Orleans. I thought I would publish a few more pictures of the day. A good day. A happy day. And proof of a hot day. At least one picture, where my buddy’s wife is wiping his face with a towel. OfContinue reading “Valley of Silent Men”

The Second Line Season Begins


The first one. The first second line of the 2018 – 2019 season. Seems like just about everyone came out. I saw folks that I haven’t seen in almost a year. I saw old friends. I made a couple of new ones. It was loud. There were great smells from vendors who were¬†barbecuing. It wasContinue reading “The Second Line Season Begins”

4:25 PM, August 25, 2018


If you’ve followed Storyteller for any length of time, you know what I think. Senator John McCain embodied the words, honor, integrity and service. While I didn’t always agree with his positions,¬† I always respected him. I always thought that he cared about my country. Now, he’s gone. Last night I spent a long timeContinue reading “4:25 PM, August 25, 2018”

Going Down, Down, Down


Going, down, down, down. Working in a coal mine. I don’t work in a coal mine. It’s just that on some days it feels that way. I shouldn’t complain. Making pictures and arguing with technology isn’t dirty work. Anyway, Here I am doing my job. Sorta. I couldn’t figure a way to keep myself outContinue reading “Going Down, Down, Down”

The Season Begins


A new season. Sometimes it isn’t about the seasons in nature. In New Orleans we have other seasons. Mardi Gras. Festival season. And, of course, second line season. It starts this Sunday with The Valley of Silent Men. We take a two-week break and then it’s on for 47 weeks. The only breaks come withContinue reading “The Season Begins”

Another Look


I lost it. I found it. Remember the life-preserver picture that I posted a few weeks ago? This is the much tighter version of it. I didn’t select it then because there is no context. You have no idea what you are looking at. Since you’ve seen that one, it doesn’t really matter about theContinue reading “Another Look”
