For more than 20 years I have studied New Orleans through the lens of my camera. During that time, I have learned to appreciate her nuances, forgive her faults, relish the beauty of her architecture, savor the uniqueness of her culinary and musical heritage. With each click of the camera I treasure this place a little more. These are my thoughts in words and pictures.

New Orleans has a unique way of celebrating those who have died.  This week we had multiple  Second Line Parades – first memorializing the beloved chef Leah Chase and later in the week honoring the memory of musical icon Mac “Dr. John” Rebennack.    The gatherings bring all lives together to celebrate. I was lucky to be a part of it.
