When I was a kid and learning how to write, I would write my H’s, over and over again. Which soon became my full name, again, writing it over and over and over. I loved how it looked on paper, bunched together and spread out down the page. The lines and curves blended together fromContinue reading “NOLA Photo Series #8”
One of many unique decor choices in NOLA. Keep in mind, this was taken in April. But then again, it’s New Orleans, where every day may as well be the day of the dead, so drink and be merry, for you know the rest. Shot on iPhone 8.

Ah punctuality, you wily nymph, you. So close, yet so very far away. Wait, let me back up. Not quite ready for this part of the story yet, we need a little preamblizing. (Not a word, you say? I bet it is in Joss Whedon’s Firefly universe. Ergo, it should be in ours. I willContinue reading “Killing Time – NOLA”
Many people of NOLA made my 2018 trip fantastically memorable, but nobody more than Aslan. Read more about this thoughtful, artistic soul here. I hope our paths cross again someday. Related: Other NOLA photos can be found here, here, here, here, and here.
It’s that time again – time for “something a little different”! Inspired by one of my favorite stories, Rashomon, I solicit the thoughts and opinions of others who have tread the same path as me, but (inevitably) they bring a different perspective.

I can’t recall ever having a better time just wandering around day after day, no destination in sight, just my camera phone in one hand and a delicious icy cold Hurricane in the other. (Don’t judge.) Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. Related: Other NOLA photosContinue reading “NOLA Photo Series #5”

This is a companion piece to a previous photo I’ve shared, “Wife“. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. Related: Other NOLA photos can be found hereContinue reading “NOLA Photo Series #4”
More cemetery shooting, exploring light and shadow. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter. Series #2 is here. #1 is here.
Growing up, I greatly enjoyed wandering through graveyards and reading all of the tombstones, in particular the crumbling, fading ones (not a vampire, but I could play one on TV). So it was a special thrill to converge my early experiments in photography with this long-standing hobby of mine, in one of the greatest cemeteryContinue reading “NOLA Photo Series #2”
So much memory Admist the forgetting Not what I expected Better than Weirder than Wilder than A new way to travel And an old way to forget More than can fit into my head Gets stuck in my gut Gets buried then unearths Then buried again Something there A trickle A thin stream But IContinue reading “New Orleans Swan Song”
