Rain King


The rain came down. Then the temperature dropped. Finally, we are turning a corner into pleasantness. At least, for now. The passing of winter to spring is always interesting in the swamp. May you have an interesting life is one of the most harshest of Chinese curses. I think most people are like dogs. WeContinue reading “Rain King”

Hot, Like Fire


Flambeaux. New Orleans is steeped in traditions. I could go on forever, but let’s limit it to the subject at hand. Once up on a time in the last century twice removed, many streets were not lighted. Black men lit the streets with flaming torches. They worked for tips. They made enough money that thereContinue reading “Hot, Like Fire”

In The 504


Everyone knows that it’s the high school bands that I like best when they roll during a Mardi Gras parade. The floats are fine. The Rolling Elvi are fun. The motorcycle riders are fun. But, the marching bands. That’s the thing for me. They combine three wonderful elements. Music. Energy, And, color. If there wasContinue reading “In The 504”

The Krewe of Madness


The picture is the thing. That’s what I say. No matter what happens make your picture. A wise old professor used to say that sometimes the hardest part of making a picture is getting there. He’s right. Even if you are working in your own city that is still true. When I photograph a MardiContinue reading “The Krewe of Madness”

Hope For Us


Farther along and further in. Those words are about learning, reflection, truth and peacefulness. That’s what today is about. We celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. today. There is a lot we can do or not do. I started this day with — what else — a dog walk. I made a few pictures. YouContinue reading “Hope For Us”

They Told Us


They said that we were going to have snow. Yep. That’s what they said. We may still see some, but the national weather maps have snow as a possibility in northern Louisiana. Not down here in the swamp. The temperature is cold for us. We had a high of 40 degrees. We had cold rain.Continue reading “They Told Us”

Dog of the Hour


She just had to look at the lens. So, I made her portrait. I made three frames and off she headed. As I wrote yesterday, WordPress made me a deal I couldn’t ignore. So here I am. I would have still been here until December 18, even if I hadn’t taken the deal. The funnyContinue reading “Dog of the Hour”

Catch The Wind


Everything changes. I had some lessons in that today. I wasn’t going to renew my premium membership with WordPress. It’s digital dump day, or whatever today is called. You know the equivalent of Black Friday. For electronic stuff. I ended my premium plan yesterday. I received an email from WordPress today. 40% off for theContinue reading “Catch The Wind”

Directions


As the calendar turns I thought I would start on something that I haven’t done in a long time. Black and white photography for you. Not only that, but it’s new work, not archival as I’ve done in the past. My time may be winding down here. It seems that WordPress wants Storyteller to beContinue reading “Directions”
