Deep Blue

This is what I saw. A deep blue sky at just around dusk. I was lucky to make the picture. This is one of those times when a tripod might come in handy. In my own defense, I wasn’t expecting to see such a sight. So, I did what I could. Dan Rather tweets andContinue reading “Deep Blue”

In the Other Direction

A couple of days ago I published a picture of a cement factory. Down the road is a motel that sits roughly under a couple of overpasses. This is what it looks like from motel end of the street. It’s not exactly a five-star kind of place. But. People live there. So, I have toContinue reading “In the Other Direction”

Into the Night

Earhart Expressway. I like this road. Originally it was built as sort of a back door from New Orleans to the airport, which although it is owned by The City of New Orleans, is located in Kenner. A small town in Jefferson Parish. About 12 miles away from the city. When we first returned afterContinue reading “Into the Night”

The Road Goes On Forever

Driving, driving, driving. Even though that wasn’t the point of yesterday, it felt like it was. That’s what we did. All day. Well… a good part of it. We didn’t spend a lot of time on little, tiny roads like this one. When we did, I made the best use of them. Stopping for somethingContinue reading “The Road Goes On Forever”


Even though we use them to commute through a lot of New Orleans, people come from all over the world to ride the streetcars. They are a tourist attraction for many people. They are a great way to see Uptown New Orleans. They are a great way to travel to our two major parks — City Park andContinue reading “Zooooooooooom…”

Such a Night

Moonrise over The Mississippi River. An accidental picture. The “needs gas” light came on about a mile from home. I made a turn to get to a gas station and saw this scene. Sometimes when I work on just “finding stuff,” I use one lens and one camera body. Yep. That’s what I had. TheContinue reading “Such a Night”

River of Gold

If you wait long enough as the sun sets the color in the sky goes crazy. This happens anywhere in the world. But, with New Orleans sub-tropical moist summer air and muted light, the color really gets weird sometimes. You’re looking at it. Weirdness. This picture was made looking across the Mississippi River directly towards theContinue reading “River of Gold”


Tchop a wha…..? Huh? What? Settle down. Say this. CHOP-ah-TOO-lus. It’s an American Indian name and the last river side street. It runs parallel to the Mississippi River. The tribe is extinct. The street is not. It is modified. It used to be a main truck run for the ships that docked next to it. Today, a good partContinue reading “Tchoupitoulas”
