Down on the Corner


Changing attitudes, changing altitudes. Sometimes I get bored with my own work. The trick is to keep making pictures. Eventually, the pictures evolve into something different. I get lucky sometimes and options appear while I’m in the field working. That’s the case with this picture. A brass band was playing in Woldenberg Park, which isContinue reading “Down on the Corner”

A Whole Lot Of Music Going On


Mardi Gras parade season. We come for all sorts of reason. Some like the excitement. Some like the floats. Some come for the throws. I come for the music. I come for the marching bands. Of course, I photograph anything that moves. But, it is the bands that move me the most. In the past,Continue reading “A Whole Lot Of Music Going On”

Music in Me


I made a picture. I made a musical picture. At least, that’s how I see it. I don’t know why, but it does. It’s very likely that it will look like something else to you. That doesn’t matter. We all bring our life, our experience and our influences to all art. That’s why you likeContinue reading “Music in Me”

Dr. John


They say it comes in threes. Ronnie Virgets. Chef Leah Chase. And, now Mac Rabennack. You might know him as Dr. John. The Night Tripper. The good doctor passed today. His family said that he had a heart attack around day break. He’d been sick for a long time. I’m not sure with what. Doesn’tContinue reading “Dr. John”

Banana Republics


Busking. A hard way to make a living. These days, in the music industry, distribution is king. Without that, you struggle with tours and merchandise sales. If you are working the street, you have none of that. You have the music. You have a tip jar. And, maybe a few cheaply recorded CDs for sale.Continue reading “Banana Republics”

On Every Corner


Music. I said it before. I’ll say it again. New Orleans is a musical place. It’s often likely that you can hear music as you are passing by a street corner, as I was when I made this picture, that is equal to the sounds you hear in many clubs. Sometimes, the guys on theContinue reading “On Every Corner”

The Big Change


The first picture. No. Not the first picture that I ever made. If you’ve been around Storyteller long enough, you’ve seen my first picture when I published a black and white portfolio of my earliest work. The work was maybe 45 years old. I published the portfolio a few years ago. This is the firstContinue reading “The Big Change”

On Stage


Before the fall. A story about a musician. I’m not even sure how to tell this story. It’s a story of greed. It’s a story of stupidity. It’s a story of loss. It’s the story of Ervin Mayfield. Trumpet playing Mayfield was one of the pillars of the New Orleans jazz community. He is aContinue reading “On Stage”
