Only the Song Survives

On Palm Sunday. The world is upside down. Time has no meaning. People are living in fear. Stupidity is the order of the day. Still. There is hope. Even though the current state of change is very negative, there are those of us who think that if we make it to the other side thereContinue reading “Only the Song Survives”

In a Small Way

On Easter Sunday. A day about redemption. A day for reflection. For us, a quiet day. Right now the world is in terrible shape. Leaders want to be dictators. Leaders who lie. Small wars in many countries. Church burnings in my own home state. Church bombings today, Easter Sunday, that killed at least 220 peopleContinue reading “In a Small Way”

The Return

The return. To the scene. If you read yesterday’s Storyteller you might have an idea of what I mean. Those first pictures of Mardi Gras Indians were made right here, at this place. In a very different time. I made this picture yesterday. I had some business in Treme and other errands around downtown. TheContinue reading “The Return”

Sunday Glow

A little different look. Not only did I make this picture during normal daylight hours, but I used completely different production software. Because. Two reasons. I do like to experiment and tinker. But, my usual software, On1, has some new downloaded upgrades. The company seems to be struggling when it comes to new products. EspeciallyContinue reading “Sunday Glow”

Saint Francis De Sales Catholic Church

The first time I saw this church it was for sale. The Archdiocese of New Orleans decided to close 33 churches in the years immediately following Hurricane Katrina. They merged the parishes of this church — Saint Francis De Sales — with a neighboring church — The Church of The Holy Ghost. The parishioners wereContinue reading “Saint Francis De Sales Catholic Church”

Rancho de Taos

You’ve seen this place. You know you have. Just about everybody has photographed it. Or, painted it. A few of those artists who did are: Georgia O’Keeffe, Paul Strand, Ansel Adams, Ned Scott. And, that’s just getting started. Georgia O’Keeffe said that it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the United States leftContinue reading “Rancho de Taos”

Good Friday

Since today is Good Friday and tonight is the beginning of Passover, Mahavira Jayanti, Theravadin New Year and Hanumana Jayani, I thought that I should post something appropriate. I found this little place in the 4th Ward in Mid-City while I was looking for an old music club called The Black Diamond. I found the club. It isContinue reading “Good Friday”

A Series of Dreams

Thinking of a series of dreams Where the time and the tempo fly And there’s no exit in any direction ’Cept the one that you can’t see with your eyes Wasn’t making any great connection Wasn’t falling for any intricate scheme Nothing that would pass inspection Just thinking of a series of dreams — BobContinue reading “A Series of Dreams”
