All That Reckoning


Not that late. No. We aren’t under siege. Hurricane Lucy will hit Lake Charles likely as a Category 4 storm. I haven’t been there for a long time. The city isn’t as little as I described it. Not anymore. They are bigger than we are. They are a city of 780,000 people. That makes themContinue reading “All That Reckoning”

Blue Moon


Dawn to dusk. I thought that if the dog likes dawn, she also likes dusk. I was right. She did. But, she wasn’t quite as energized. After all, she had a busy day. Sleeping.  Somewhere in the past few days there has been an upgrade in Snapseed. Now you can drop text into the picture.Continue reading “Blue Moon”

Apparently…


… I lied. Not a big lie. Not a whopper. A little one. I wrote that Spring was over in New Orleans. I ought to get out more. Before I blew that pop stand, I did my semi-monthly swing through the Lower Ninth Ward. I’m determined to follow its progress photographically as it tries to come backContinue reading “Apparently…”

Bright, Colorful and Glowing


I’m sort of falling into the thing I did last year. Make a bunch of pictures and save them for distribution as I needed them. I had a good reason last year. I wasn’t in New Orleans all that much. I was busy elsewhere. But, this year is a lot quieter so I don’t haveContinue reading “Bright, Colorful and Glowing”

Satchmo Second Line (Part 1)


There is a funny thing about The Stachmo Fest and everything associated with it. The city, the planners and just about everybody says that Louis Armstrong’s birthday was August 4, 1901. That is except for Satchmo, himself. He used to say that he was born on July 4.  A researcher proved him to be wrongContinue reading “Satchmo Second Line (Part 1)”

Crosstown Traffic


I suppose that The French Quarter and Frenchman Street have become two of “my places.” I seem to be able to recharge when I wander around there. And, with good reason. Even during our so-called off-season, there are plenty of people wandering around. There is always good music. And, there is plenty of good foodContinue reading “Crosstown Traffic”

Crescent City Connection (Again)


Before I get really going on this post, I thought I share something with you. My friends at the Albuquerque Photographers Gallery  http-::www.abqphotographersgallery.com: were talking about lavender skies in Albuquerque via a post on Facebook. I had to chuckle because they think New Mexico is the only place that has lavender skies. But, my picture sortContinue reading “Crescent City Connection (Again)”

In a Garden


At one time, the place where I happened upon this Blessed Virgin statue, must have been something to see. To the left of this scene are big sweeping stairs that I imagine lead to a big impressive front door of whatever house was there at one time. Today… “ain’t der no mo’” I have noContinue reading “In a Garden”

Out West


I know. I know. I said I was taking a break over the long weekend. Big plans and all that. But, two people around here caught colds. It’s kind of funny. The older I get, the less I like being around crowds. Now, I’ve figured out one of the reasons for this new phobia. TheContinue reading “Out West”
