Hot, Like Fire


Flambeaux. New Orleans is steeped in traditions. I could go on forever, but let’s limit it to the subject at hand. Once up on a time in the last century twice removed, many streets were not lighted. Black men lit the streets with flaming torches. They worked for tips. They made enough money that thereContinue reading “Hot, Like Fire”

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”

Gypsy Blue


Night time is the right time. So, they say. I like working at night because of the mystery that is often added to the picture. I like it because I can hide imperfections in the scene or the picture. I also like it because I can make the scene more blue. The color blue addsContinue reading “Gypsy Blue”

Blue In Abstract


Night. Moody, deep and dark. Sometimes scary. Always interesting. That’s one of my favorite times of day to work aside from the ends of the day. Working at night means that you can hide some imperfections. You can build in the shadows. Pools of light become subjects in themselves. Trees often become silvery in theContinue reading “Blue In Abstract”

Cold, Cold Sky


Cold. Cold. Cold sky. It looks like a winter sky. It is a winter sky. I suppose that’s because it’s winter. I like winter. The air feels good to me. My energy rises as opposed to summer when I slink about in the shadows. It looks we have another week of interesting events. Never inContinue reading “Cold, Cold Sky”

Gratitude


Happy Thanksgiving. May y’all be blessed with the riches of the day whether you are lucky enough to be with family or happen to be alone. During this weird pandemic year of 2020, some celebrations must be put aside so that we can celebrate in the future. The word today on the socials is #gratitude.Continue reading “Gratitude”

On An Autumn Night


There was no choice. If I was going to continue to photograph trees I had to do something different. So I went out at night. More about technique in the right hand column. Let’s talk about the Coronavirus. We who live in Louisiana are in a hot spot. Luckily, New Orleans is will under theContinue reading “On An Autumn Night”

Blue Hunter Moon


I’m still posting from my phone because there is no power yet. Bigger streets have power, but not us. Not yet. So this will be short. I’m sitting in one of the cars down by the river, charging multiple phones. The picture you are looking at is straight ahead. The Blue Harvest Moon. Two fullContinue reading “Blue Hunter Moon”

One Moonlit Night


The night sky. It was early. The all seeing dog wanted to go out. She kept nagging me until I took her for a short walk. I did what she demanded. It was a good thing. Because. Look what I found. What a night. What a sky. What a moon. And, two long haul trainContinue reading “One Moonlit Night”
