Uh Oh


Driving. You are looking at the CBD — Central Business District — of New Orleans. The timing was perfect. I made a lot of frames of the scene from the interstate. Even though I’ve been known to drive and make pictures, I had a driver this time. We were going to The French Quarter. That’sContinue reading “Uh Oh”

Night Ride


Everybody is going somewhere. This is Central Business District traffic at right about rush hour. There is rain falling in the light dusky shadows. Drivers are trying to dart in and out of traffic blockages. I got bored. I did what any photographer would do. I made pictures. Before you think that I’m crazy, let meContinue reading “Night Ride”

NSU


Driving. Motion. Movement. The combination of others moving and my own motion helped to create some kind of impressionistic art. And, a lot of Ws. I reckon that the Ws were created by NOLA’s potholed streets. Hit a hole and down the car goes. So too, with the other cars around me.  Up. Down. Up.Continue reading “NSU”


New Orleans. The rainy season comes in the summer. Sometimes, we get a little rain every day. Rain might not fall for long. But, it will fall. And, usually, it starts out falling pretty hard. That’s okay. I think what most people dislike is not the rainfall, but the inevitable soupy humidity that follows. AsContinue reading

Storm Light Too


Storm Light. One of my favorite qualities of light. There are others. Light at the ends of the day. Golden. Blue. Night. Almost anything but high noon in bright sunlight. But, first. I decided not to chase down all the storm damage in the little upriver towns. Those people have enough on their hands without havingContinue reading “Storm Light Too”

Drive By


A couple of semi-left out images. Just a little drive by work… I doubt these will get stolen. Remember that very graphic picture of the bare trees against the backlighted cloud that I published here yesterday? A guy with whom I went to high school, liked it when he saw it on Facebook so muchContinue reading “Drive By”

It May Seem So


Before the storm, this place was plain scary. Now, it’s just scary. It was a kind of no man’s land that was one of those places that you shouldn’t go into alone. But, the storm cleared out the bad guys. Most of the nearby housing was torn down. They moved to other parts of the city.Continue reading “It May Seem So”

Not Your Usual New Orleans


It’s art. I suppose. I had an assignment to photograph and architect just down the street in One Shell Plaza. As I was walking back, everything was just sparkling on our first sunny day after the “Great Ice Storm of 2014.” Wonderful winter light. So, I took my time getting back to my car andContinue reading “Not Your Usual New Orleans”

I Try Not To


Sometimes, I feel like I’m misleading you. Yes. New Orleans has a lot of interesting, rundown and abandoned structures and neighborhoods. We are called “the city that care forgot.” That’s just one of our nicknames. We are funky… in good and bad ways. Our people are interesting, unique and have character. We are made upContinue reading “I Try Not To”
