The artist at work

A wide range of options

Last August, I got a tattoo on my leg, to cover up the scar from knee-replacement surgery. I hated the scar, which made me feel really old since knee-replacement is sort of an old-person’s thing. I am aware that the tattoo is far more visible than the scar, and that my logic could be considered a bit flawed. But it makes me feel better about the whole situation.

And it gave me the cred I needed to head over to the local tattoo expo the other day.

I can’t explain my recent need to photograph people, though.

Please do not disrespect

Have you noticed what’s been going on here on the blog? How more and more often people are showing up in the images?

I can’t explain it. And I’m sorry if it’s leaving you confused. It’s leaving me a bit discombobulated, too.

Social Aid and Pleasure Club

A couple of days ago, I posted a photo of a second line gentleman, waiting for the rest of the group to show up. And here’s what happened after they’d all arrived.

New Orleans’s social aid and pleasure clubs, which are part of the second line traditions, are an interesting cultural institution, and you can read more about them here and here.

Levee, late afternoon

I had one chance to get this shot before the gentleman walked out of the frame, and I barely made it. He was walking pretty fast, probably to escape photographers…
