All about rain. No. This isn’t Hurricane Sally. These pictures were made during a typical gulf coast summer storm. Usually, the humidity collects and sometime in the afternoon all that water needs a place to go. It’s interesting to see. These pictures were made in a grocery store parking. It was raining pretty hard where […]


Summer in city. This was probably the last second line of the season. The weather turns too hot and humid to walk after the first week in July. We resume during the second week of September. The joyful dancing woman and I had been flirting photographically for the past couple of weeks prior to my […]


Storms come and go. This storm dropped a lot of rain. Its winds tore down some branches from weak and dying trees. All in all, it wasn’t as bad as it could be, or the hurricane that so many rumor mongers were posting on social media sites. There was no hurricane. There was even cyclonic […]


Hurricane Season. Down here in the semi-tropics our hurricane season runs from June 1 until November 30. Usually, we don’t see any kind of big storm until July. Now comes Cristobal. The storm is predicted to remain a tropical storm. The thing about big storms is that they are often unpredictable. With a little more […]


Driving. Out on Highway 61. That’s where Abraham and God a conversation. That’s what Bob Dylan said. Apparently, God wasn’t messing around. So Abraham did what he was told. Sometimes there are little miracles when you least expect them. On Saturday, Sophie Rose wasn’t doing so good. I was afraid I might lose her. It […]


It’s that time again in Southeastern Louisiana. It would have been Jazzfest time if CoVid-19 didn’t come roaring in like a hellound from the grave. It’s also a time when there is a very clear dividing point between the coolish, dry air of spring and the heat of summer. The first week of Jazzfest is […]


I made this picture. I’m quite proud of it. Because, when I said I made it, I meant that. I took a picture of an overcast sky with power poles scattered throughout. I saved it, mostly because it wasn’t much. I started reading about Todd Hido, who is one of the photographers interviewed in the […]


The rain stopped earlier then predicted. It didn’t matter. Water was flowing from America’s eyes. It started with a brief tweet referencing TMZ that said Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash. At first, there were disbelievers. Not me. I’m not a fan of TMZ-style journalism, but when this kind of horrible news breaks they […]


We have agreement. There is a big, huge storm headed this way and to the rest of the Southeast coming tomorrow. Supposedly, there will be punishing rains, high winds and the possibility of tornadoes. Some say. The storm will be warm. Others say the storm will be cool and will usher in another cold front. […]
