Here I Am


“Life doesn’t wave as it’s speeding by. Better grab on fast and hold on tight. And don’t ever forget to fight this good fight. Here I am.” It’s a calling. I make pictures for myself first, and then for everybody else. I’m there for myself but being there for everybody else comes in a closeContinue reading “Here I Am”

World of Strange Design


River gets faster not slower. A Jimmy Buffett line if there ever was one. I made this photograph on the Ninth Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina making landfall in Buras, Louisiana. All that followed in the next weeks and months is history. In about two months, we’ll be acknowledging the 15th anniversary of that hellhound. SoContinue reading “World of Strange Design”

Out in the Lower 9th


This is what I saw. I told you about this yesterday. I made this picture in the Lower 9th Ward. Houses stacked on other houses. Houses stacked on cars. Cars completely left to die after the water finally receded. The Lower 9th Ward was a vibrant community on the downriver side of the Industrial Canal.Continue reading “Out in the Lower 9th”

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”

River Road


River Road. With a few breaks here and there, you can travel almost to Baton Ridge from New Orleans on a seemingly country road that runs along both the East and West banks of the Mississippi River. If you are a bicyclist you can ride most of that distance on the top of the leveeContinue reading “River Road”

What Remains


I go back. To this place of flood waters and death. I go back every three or four months. Just to see how things are progressing. The Lower 9th Ward was destroyed during the flooding after Hurricane Katrina. The levees broke. The levees that were built by the Army Corps of Engineers were not properlyContinue reading “What Remains”

What I Saw


Hurricane. Katrina at 11. I said last year that ten years was enough time to mourn. To rebuild. To reflect. I said that I was done living in post-Katrina New Orleans. That from last year’s ten-year anniversary I wasn’t going to wallow in the Katrina leftovers. I was moving on. My response was partially dueContinue reading “What I Saw”

Fire on the Levee


How did I do this? How did I forget to publish this picture? I made this picture during early spring. I forgot to show it to you. I was doing some housekeeping in my Storyteller folder and found a couple of pretty interesting pictures. This was one of them. The levee at Algiers Point duringContinue reading “Fire on the Levee”

On the Levee


This is a good Friday picture. Check it out. A lone bike rider silhouetted against a wonderful sunset while he’s cruising along the levee with the Crescent City Connection spanning the Mississippi River in the background. Do me a personal favor, please. Open this picture up. By doing that, you’ll be doing yourself a bigger favor.Continue reading “On the Levee”
