Where The Beauty Is


The original title was going to be “The Boys of Summer,” after reading about a number of great baseball players of my youth passing. But, Eddie Van Halen died. He was 65, a year younger than I am now. He died after a very long battle with cancer. He family was with him. He wasContinue reading “Where The Beauty Is”

The Blue Distance


Get out of the French Quarter, I tell visitors. I don’t mean quite as far out as the locations in these pictures. Going to some of these places would mean really long days for some of them. But, I live here. I can pick them off one by one when the light and the heatContinue reading “The Blue Distance”

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”

South To Louisiana


It’s that time again in Southeastern Louisiana. It would have been Jazzfest time if CoVid-19 didn’t come roaring in like a hellound from the grave. It’s also a time when there is a very clear dividing point between the coolish, dry air of spring and the heat of summer. The first week of Jazzfest isContinue reading “South To Louisiana”

More Road, Some Sky


Once again. A road and sky picture. It’s not really what it seems. It looks like I am out on some distant road. Not really. I was running errands. I drove out to Jefferson Parish. I was getting ready to drive home. I realized that I was driving up and over a railroad bridge, whichContinue reading “More Road, Some Sky”

Everyday It Rains


The goopy season. It starts around now and lasts well into August, when even hotter temperatures dry out the air a little bit. A loss of humidity would seem to be a good thing. It is. Unfortunately, the temperature starts creeping into the triple digits. Like about 219 degrees. You pick your poison. Or, youContinue reading “Everyday It Rains”

Shelter From The Storm


“Come in,” she said, “I’ll give you shelter from the storm.” So wrote Bob Dylan. Where is that shelter? Again, a year to the day of the Pittsburgh shooting, and not more than two weeks from the last mass shooting, a Jewish synagogue was attacked. Four wounded. One dead. A woman died attempting to protectContinue reading “Shelter From The Storm”

Arrrrggggghhhh


Yes. Arrrggggghhhh. Google, apparently lacking enough to do, redesigned their desktop. The very desktop that I use 20 times a day. The one with my eight favorite sites like Storyteller. I would see the thumbnail, click on it and a way I went. Oh no. Not anymore. The new desktop only has six buttons. SalesContinue reading “Arrrrggggghhhh”

Magazine Street


On my way. To someplace else. Actually, I was sort of circling around. Going home from a casual meeting with writer Sharon Cathcart at the Hotel Montelone’s Carousel Bar. She is in town for a writer’s meeting. We’d talked back and forth via comments here and on her blog. We decided to meet. We chattedContinue reading “Magazine Street”
