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”

Stranger To Himself


Very experimental. Since the all seeing dog isn’t walking so far these days because she isn’t quite well, I haven’t been looking about very much. I’d start seriously looking for pictures as our restrictions drop, but the sky is too blue and the sun is too bright. Ridiculous, I know. My best work is doneContinue reading “Stranger To Himself”

Into the Lower 9th Ward


I’m sort of running out of pictures. That’s mostly because I’m living my other life for the next week or so. No worries. I have plenty of pictures stashed away that you haven’t seen. For that matter, they are pictures that I’ve sort of forgotten about. Pictures like this one, a nice bucolic meadow picture.Continue reading “Into the Lower 9th Ward”

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”

New Orleans – A Few Weeks Later


Like a moth to a flame. I kept going back. At first, every week or so. I had to know what would become of a once vibrant neighborhood of blue-collar people. While it is true that many people lost their lives out here, many more didn’t. It is still sacred ground. It always will be.Continue reading “New Orleans – A Few Weeks Later”

New Orleans — What Once Was


What was once.¬† What isn’t is a distant memory. These are things that I found during the early days of recovery following Hurricane Katrina’s destructive path. Or more precisely, the Federal Flood, given that the levees broke because of catastrophic¬†failure. I saw things. Terrible things. I’ll show you some of the more publishable things overContinue reading “New Orleans — What Once Was”

On Easter Sunday


For Christians today is Easter Sunday. For Jewish people it is the second day of Passover. For those who believe in other ways, they may stop to honor Jesus’ rebirth, but for them it is mostly about spring. More rebirth. I’m spiritual, but not particularly religious. Yes, it’s true. I am a baptized Catholic andContinue reading “On Easter Sunday”

CTC Original Steppers


You know this already. The tuba starts it. When you hear the tuba start playing bottom notes you know the second line is about to start. Not only do they sound the opening notes of the parade, but they start again when the parade resumes after taking a break along the route. I made theseContinue reading “CTC Original Steppers”

Staying in One Place


Today, you get two. Two posts. One just an hour earlier than this one. I scheduled one for yesterday morning as usual. But, I bought a new iPad, I changed some operating systems which caused WordPress to be so confused that I can’t even remove the App for the new iPad in order to reinstallContinue reading “Staying in One Place”
