Wedding at Houmas House Plantation
**x-posted in a few places**


A few weeks ago some friends of mine got married and got a few really nice shots.
The grounds were beautiful.
I especially liked all the ponds, fountains and water features that the gardens contained.

Today is a lovely day in my city.
Just about perfect. Nope, make that perfect.
The kind of day that screams for a long walk.
some of things that I saw on my walk this morningCollapse )

southern decadence
New Orleans is not a town where you need and excuse to wear a costume, but luckily there are close to a half a dozen reasons, and Southern Decadence is the gayest. Mardi Gras would be the second gayest. Easter probably would be number three.

some pics....
I took these pics on my way to work the other day. The weather was nice, so I rode my scooter. I get to feel closer to everything on my scooter.

This is a few blocks up the street. Right on Esplanade Ave. Just before the bayou. They are so good at keeping their house beautiful.

The museum of art is about 10 blocks from my house and always good for a photo op.

I want my next tattoo to be blue lotus. These water lilies are great inspiration.

our most recent 'TOD'
We hadn't been on 'the tour' for over a month, actually since March. Some things had changed, but mostly they had stayed the same. I was happy to see that the Common Ground folks had made up some street signs to name the streets again in the most devistated area in the lower 9th ward. It still leaves my stomach in knots...

A Huge pile of pics....Thanks MIKE!!!!
here is a e-mail I just received from my friend Mike. I asked and he said I could share....enjoy!



It's been awhile since I sent out a missive on the status of dealing
with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. While now it's barely a
footnote in national news, in areas of the city, there are few signs
of progress. Today, about six months after the hurricane hit New
Orleans, things are still bad. Here are some pictures I took today
from New Orleans East and the Lakefront:

The stuff I shot today includes the carnage at the Lake Pontchartrain
west end: boats every which way in the harbor and up on land. Some
of the names of the boats and their position are especially poignant.

There are literally square miles of neighborhoods that are
uninhabited throughout the city; major areas still without
electricity, and debris everywhere.

Here are more pictures in case you didn't see them before:

I just overheard a commercial for Oprah this afternoon: "The Katrina stories you haven't heard......This is in American.... I can't believe people are living like this...." I am going to set the DVR right now!!

Only Cause you wanted it......
This is my first selection of photos of New Orleans destruction most of which occured because of the levee failure. This set was shot on january 26th, 2006 five months after the disaster. When folks ask, 'How are things in New Orleans? Are things back to normal?' I love to answer with my new favorite catch phrase: "Shit is fucked up!"
