Happy Mardi Gras


We ate it. If truth be told since carnival season began on January 6, we ate three. Three king cakes. During a normal Mardi Gras year we’d eat way more than that, but they’d be consumed at the brunch that we would have had yesterday. The subject of this picture is what’s left after eatingContinue reading “Happy Mardi Gras”

On This Day


Wow! What a busy weekend. For the of us who are in New Orleans we are think about the Mardi Gras parades that won’t happen. The celebrations in the quarter that will be muted. But, wait. There’s more. We are in the midst of the Lunar New Year. Or, as some say, the Chinese NewContinue reading “On This Day”

Party At Ground Zero


The trolls are coming out of the woodwork the closer we get to Fat Tuesday. One guy said that he had just arrived in New Orleans. He asked what there was to do. Many, many, many people replied sincerely. Something felt off so I went to his Facebook page. He lives in Chalmette, a wholeContinue reading “Party At Ground Zero”

In The 504


Everyone knows that it’s the high school bands that I like best when they roll during a Mardi Gras parade. The floats are fine. The Rolling Elvi are fun. The motorcycle riders are fun. But, the marching bands. That’s the thing for me. They combine three wonderful elements. Music. Energy, And, color. If there wasContinue reading “In The 504”

The Krewe of Madness


The picture is the thing. That’s what I say. No matter what happens make your picture. A wise old professor used to say that sometimes the hardest part of making a picture is getting there. He’s right. Even if you are working in your own city that is still true. When I photograph a MardiContinue reading “The Krewe of Madness”

Seven Days From The Big Day


Light and color. Rather the lack of color. I always say that when you have to explain the picture that you didn’t do a good job. I guess I didn’t. It’s two members of the Krewe of Cleopatra dancing in the street. I guess what I really like is the movement passing through the veryContinue reading “Seven Days From The Big Day”

Two Years Ago


This mask was scary before I worked on it in post production. It got scarier after I was done. To me, this looks like some underground subway creature who lives in the lost subway tunnels and tracks of New York City. I have a big imagination. Imagination will get you places, either to the topContinue reading “Two Years Ago”

Another Time


Ten days on. If this were a sensible year we’d be off to see the Krewe of Barkus today. Sometimes the dogs come along. Sometimes they’d actually be entered officially. But, there is no Krewe of Barkus this year. There are no Mardi Gras parades. Bourbon Street will be closed. Bars will be closed. They’llContinue reading “Another Time”

It Ain’t Over


Pictures. You know that I’ve been working in my archives looking for pictures for a project. I’ve found some, but not all. I did find this picture. A photograph. It is so appropriate because. I have been thinking lately about my past. You know, getting deep inside. I won’t write much about the picture onContinue reading “It Ain’t Over”
