Summertime. I know summer started a few weeks ago, but I wanted to show you a few pictures from my past. So, the real colors of summer start on July 1, in the age of the pandemic. The picture is pretty. It looks and feels like a rich, verdant summer lawn. With a golden leaf […]


Get out of the French Quarter, I tell visitors. I don’t mean quite as far out as the locations in these pictures. Going to some of these places would mean really long days for some of them. But, I live here. I can pick them off one by one when the light and the heat […]


My kind of picture. Something backlighted. Something different. Something about nature. I made this picture on a walk. Another dog walk. We are starting to work together again. She stops. I stop. I stop. She stops. Good timing. Good communication. The picture I’m doing this a little inside out. This is one of those photographs […]


Some things seem to be getting better. Don’t hold me to that. Georgia opened up all sorts of close contact businesses. Guess what? The state now has a surge of infections. Meanwhile, Jimmy Buffett’s management team thinks that it’s a good idea to restart his tour in early July. They had to cancel a couple […]


So far. So good The rate of infection is still growing, but there is a little light showing. Make no mistake, we can’t change our new normal. We still can’t gather. We should wear masks in public. We must wash our hands. More restaurants are closing temporarily rather trying to serve take away from the […]


What a day can change. Two days ago, the sky was muddy gray. There was rain in the air. It was, in a word, yucky. Then came yesterday. Wowzer! Beautiful cold air. The sky turned blue. The light was spectacular. It turned even better around dusk. Cotton candy. Cold. Like winter is supposed to be. […]


I am NOT laughing at you who live in places where it so terribly cold. Instead, I’m showing you what we get for putting up with New Orleans things. We have a high murder rate (two weekends in a row). We have an ancient water system that breaks every week. We have a terrible street […]


Well, finally. Must I write more about “finally?” They (the legendary and mythical they) say that if you have snow or rain followed by a cold snap you’ll likely see bright fall colors. That’s what happened. Apparently, they are right because I don’t recall ever seeing bright colors like these in Louisiana. Maybe I just […]


The picture had a hole in it. I fixed it. The hole was just a big portion of the picture that was right in the middle. There was also this great stuff going on around the edges. The center had no subject, just an open space. Like a donut. It reminded me of so many […]
