On This Holy Weekend


An eerie silence has taken over, I can’t speak for every city, but I can for my home city. New Orleans. It’s quiet out there. For sure, people are walking, walking our dogs, making groceries, and running short to the point errands. That’s it. Take me, for example, I like to roam around in myContinue reading “On This Holy Weekend”

No, It’s Not


Despite whatever you are thinking, the picture is not upside down. I know. I know. It looks upside down. I made the picture standing directly under the tree and looking up. It is the perfect symbol for our current times. The world seems upside down. If everybody isn’t busy hating people who are not likeContinue reading “No, It’s Not”

It’s Here


Yes. It’s here. It came earlier than I thought it would. It came like an onrushing tide. CoVid-19 arrived yesterday. The person who caught it lives in Jefferson Parish. He or She is being treated at the new Veterans Administration hospital in Mid-City, New Orleans. We haven’t yet been told much beyond that. I supposeContinue reading “It’s Here”

A Day In March


Testing technique. Another dog and I headed to the airport. On the way we stopped to visit friends. As we were leaving I saw this scene. It really didn’t look much in camera and after basic development. So, I tinkered. And, tinkered. I arrived at the picture that you see before you. I’m still notContinue reading “A Day In March”

Making Movies


I made this picture. I’m quite proud of it. Because, when I said I made it, I meant that. I took a picture of an overcast sky with power poles scattered throughout. I saved it, mostly because it wasn’t much. I started reading about Todd Hido, who is one of the photographers interviewed in theContinue reading “Making Movies”

The Age of Decadence


Decadence. I’m reading a rather long op-ed piece by The New York Times’ Ross Douthat. It is a take out of his upcoming book called, “The Decadent Society.” The name is not what you are thinking. He quotes Jacques Barzun, who says, “The forms of art as of life seem exhausted, the stages of developmentContinue reading “The Age of Decadence”

A little Japanese


  I was walking the all seeing dog, when I saw this reflection is a water feature that can be found along one of her routes. For some reason it was clear and blue. It was also highly reflective. The bare trees of winter were looking back at me. I made a lot of pictures.Continue reading “A little Japanese”

The Last Chance


I didn’t know. I didn’t know that when I photographed the Japonica trees a day or two ago that it would be my last chance. Normally the flowers would last another two or three weeks. But, we had a pretty bad storm this afternoon. Not only did we get a lot of rain, but weContinue reading “The Last Chance”

Dead Can Dance


I made these photographs last Monday. To be honest, I hadn’t thought of photographing a cemetery on Holocaust Memorial Day. I was buying king cakes at the King Cake Hub that happens to be located in a building that houses the Haunted Mansion on Halloween. ┬áBehind the mansion building, which looks like it once belongedContinue reading “Dead Can Dance”
