It’s about the weather this time of year. Come to think about it, in Louisiana it’s always about the weather. After all, we live with six months of hurricane season. In about a week, that season will finally be over for 2019. I’m pretty sure that I can say we were lucky this year. The […]


The sky turned really dark. Even the dog who shows me stuff didn’t want to be out. She did her “business” and headed for home. She’s no fool. She doesn’t like water falling on her from above. For most of us, this is nothing unusual. Summer rain. It blows in from the Gulf of Mexico. […]


I took a walk. I saw this little scene. Bathed in golden light. Morning light. There was little I could do. I photographed it for you. For me. I worked on it some. Not that much. Here it is. Louisiana. In late spring. You’ve heard this from me in the past. Things seem to be […]


Time for a change. I reckon that yesterday’s post about spring was a fairly good one. That’s a good way to go out. No. I’m not leaving. I’m just a little tired of photographing nature when I’m not even a nature photographer. I suppose it shows. Real nature photographers go places. Even if they stayed […]


After Mardi Gras. Around here everybody puts stuff off until “after Mardi Gras.” We try very hard to get it all done because the last thing we want to do is to postpone the same stuff until “after Jazzfest.” After all, the IRS takes a dim view of “I didn’t pay my taxes on time […]


The deep freeze is really 42 degrees. One day the talking weather people heads will get it right. One day. Last night they were predicting starting the day with temperatures in the low twenties. That may be true somewhere. They said we might have snow. Somewhere else too. Wind was going to coming ripping through. […]


My fascination with trees. In all seasons. Especially in winter. I counted. In the last two weeks, I’ve mostly published pictures of trees. I like them. I like their shapes. Their form. I like them when their branches are bare in the winter cold. I can see all sorts of thing going on. I like […]


The third time is a charm. They say. Maybe. It does help to return to the scene of the crime, er, picture. Eventually, I’ll get it right. This may be the best of the skytrain pictures, mostly because of the clouds, the light and the golden color. Also, because I finally found the right angle […]


Moving. Changes. Life. If you read Storyteller yesterday you know that changes are on my mind. Most for the better. Some not so much. Today, bright and early, I got a reminder of changes. My new phone shows me anything it thinks is important the minute that turn it on. Note that phrase, “anything it […]
