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 my […]


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 like […]


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 quotes Jacques Barzun, who says, “The forms of art as of life seem exhausted, the stages of development […]

I made these photographs last Monday. To be honest, I hadn’t thought of photographing a cemetery on Holocaust Memorial Day.
