Dogs. You know that they make me smile. After all, a pack of them allow us to live with them. They aren’t Beagles, but still. After this miserable week, which isn’t over, I needed something to make me smile. So, I dipped into those lost archives and found something that would do the trick. The […]


More dogs. I bet you thought that I ran out. Nooooooo…. I photographed lotsa dogs. Dogs doing all sorts of things. But, given the circumstances, the thing they did best was be patient. It amazes me, sometimes, when dogs just completely roll with everything and turn very Zen. The humans among us could learn some […]


Krewe of Barkus. The dogs. The people. The pictures. And, a few stories. I had it all planned out. In my head. I even tried to photograph what I was thinking about. My lead picture was going to be the dog sniffing into the lens. Then, this picture. Then that picture. But, you know what […]


  The Krewe of Barkus. This post wrote itself. Woof, woof, woof, bark, bark, bark, growl, growl, growl, grrr, grrr, grr. See what I mean? Anyway. The Krewe of Barkus. It’s about dogs. It’s their parade. But, it’s also about their humans. It’s also our parade too. It’s hard to know who is masked better. The dogs? Or, […]


I don’t know what happened to the original post. Once again, WordPress and its quirks got me. I’ve about had enough with this crappy software and its needed work arounds. I won’t let me see to edit if I need to replace even a single word. So, if you see any of this it’s just dumb luck. […]


Here’s the backstory. As I wrote, we at the Krewe of Barkus were forced to deal with some pretty rainy weather. Early on we were able to duck under some overhangs in Armstrong Park. Yes. That’s Louis Armstrong. Satchmo. New Orleans’ own. “What a Wonderful World.” That guy. We were jammed in all over the […]


It rained. A lot. Over three inches. That doesn’t stop us in New Orleans. If it’s parade time, we walk. So do our dogs. I’m not sure who enjoyed it more. The people. Or, the dogs. Yeah. Sure. We all got wet. But, what’s a little water among friends? Besides, as National Geographic’s Sam Abell […]


Yes. Sunday and Mardi Gras. About dogs. And their people. From my point of view, the main parade yesterday was the Krewe of Barkus. Yes. Barkus. Bark. Bark. Bark. Except these dogs were all pretty good. They visited with each other before showtime. Then they walked throughout The French Quarter. It was their parade. The […]


This post should take about 100 years to produce. The categories and tags alone will take a long, long time to write. Anyway. PAD. Picture a Day. A lot of photographers do this. Some don’t make it. It’s a really tough discipline to shoot SOMETHING everyday. Some guys claim that they only shoot when their […]
