Photographers luck. I was out walking when I heard police sirens. I looked up. I saw Mardi Gras floats being pulled by their tractors. After being around for so long, I know that the floats are being towed to their parade starting points. There are three parades in which I’m interested. They are all Uptown […]


Oh, so blue. That’s what I saw on an early evening walk. I was mostly looking at the bare trees when the moon came into view. “Oh, man,” I thought. I stopped, braced myself, and made four exposures. This, obviously, is one of them. This color, or one just slightly lighter, used to be called […]


It’s a blue sort of day. The weather is frightful. It’s raining outside. Jazz music is playing inside. They say that we are going to get wet. Very wet today. Rain all day. Into the night. The late night. Some plans went out the window. I gave some serious thought to photographing one of two […]
