Postcard Blues


You could see it coming from miles away. The storm. The cold. The wind. Luckily, we didn’t have heavy rainfall. Maybe a couple of inches. But, we are having a cold spell that is as cold and long as anything in recent memory. I’ll tell you more about this picture in the right hand column.Continue reading “Postcard Blues”

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”

The Forest For The Trees


An accidental picture. I wasn’t even thinking about pictures when I looked up and saw this scene. The gray sky was softly illuminating it which gave the trees a sort of old fashioned glow. In fact, in one version of this, I didn’t care about keeping the color true. It looked like something from theContinue reading “The Forest For The Trees”

Out In The Rain


The rain. Running errands is a good time for to make pictures in the rain. I just have to be a little careful, and be considerate of other drivers who are probably grumbling at the rain… and me. I’m not sure how well you can see it, but there is a pickup truck in frontContinue reading “Out In The Rain”

About the Season


I saw a leaf. My normal instinct would be to photograph it in situ. Instead, I brought it home. I worked on it in the studio. I simplified the picture by photographing the leaf by itself, on a light table. The result was pretty good. That was just a start. I knew it would beContinue reading “About the Season”

After the Storm


We had a storm. Storms aren’t unusual this time of year. We are in the rainy and hurricane season. Lately, our storms are overwhelming all of our drains, canals and pumping systems. We accumulated five inches of rain in about 90 minutes. Everywhere Uptown was flooded. I don’t mean with a few inches of water.Continue reading “After the Storm”

Rose Tears


The rain, the park and other things. Another experiment. With something that’s almost macro, in the very loosest sense. That’s a whole other story. I was making pictures of some rose petals. I sort of missed the focus on them. Instead, I focused on the rain drops. If I didn’t tell you that, you mightContinue reading “Rose Tears”

Shape Shifting


And, so it starts. One of the biggest holidays in New Orleans, among other big holidays. Halloween. This weekend and into next week. How could it be otherwise, when we mask for just about everything else? I made this picture the other day, in the depths of Mordor. Or, the Lower 9th Ward. Whichever comesContinue reading “Shape Shifting”

Time for a Change


Yes. Time to get back to documenting stuff and playing with it in order to turn it into some kind of art. Or, something like that. This is the Florida Avenuei¬†Bridge located in the lowest part of the Ninth Ward as possible. It’s closed for now. That’s a good thing. It crossed the¬†Industrial Canal nearContinue reading “Time for a Change”
