Not Enough Masks

A little clean up time. Sometimes pictures don’t make the final cut. They are close enough. I thought I’d show you a few from two second lines that missed the first cut… a little bit. Single Ladies. And the jazz funeral for Chef Leah Chase. I thought I’d stack them up all in one bigContinue reading “Not Enough Masks”

Saying Goodbye

We all came out. Zulus. Chefs in their whites. Indians. Voodoo priestesses. Priests and ministers. Political leaders. And all the rest of us. We walked. We talked to each other. There was a lot of kindness in the crowd. We came to celebrate a humble woman who believed the food could bring us all together.Continue reading “Saying Goodbye”

A NOLA Portrait

A portrait. To be more specific, a street portrait. It’s hung around in my portfolio for a few years now. Depending on who is looking at my work, I often start with this picture. If this doesn’t catch your eye, I don’t know what will. If it’s printed, a 20 inch deep version of thisContinue reading “A NOLA Portrait”

Love and Mercy

It was the first song I heard this morning. It stunned me. It’s an old Brian Wilson song called “Love and Mercy.” He more or less gave it to the Miraculous Love Kids/Girl with a Guitar. Not only did he approve it, but he reworked it by singing with the girls. They were in Afghanistan.Continue reading “Love and Mercy”

New Orleans – First Things First

It seems that y’all are getting to see my firsts. First picture in New Orleans. First Mardi Gras. And, now first pictures of Mardi Gras Indians. Even though I was living in New Orleans for about 5 years, I wasn’t out on the streets. In July 2005 that changed. Looking back, it seemed like everythingContinue reading “New Orleans – First Things First”

The Vault. One.

A visit to my vault. I’m a little jammed up so I thought I might show you a few pictures from the past. I came to this picture because I was looking for an image for another project. You know how it goes. I don’t care how well your back-end systems are organized with keyContinue reading “The Vault. One.”

New Orleans. And, a Backdoor.

Well, well, well… There is a backdoor. It’s not quite where some of you suggested. But, it’s nearby and it got me to the so-called classic desktop. However, it took a lot of time to use. That’s fine. But, I’d rather spend my time taking pictures, working on pictures and planning my next shoot. IfContinue reading “New Orleans. And, a Backdoor.”

New Orleans

In New Orleans. I read a lot of blogs. A lot of them are traveller’s musings. Since New Orleans has a lot of panache, there are a lot of first timers to the city. They mostly stay in the French Quarter and rarely get out to explore the rest of the city. That’s too bad.Continue reading “New Orleans”
