New Orleans 2007 265 Two Years After B&W Art blog-2Image by kenne

Long weekends 
in our city of escape 
created ownership
that time bought back.

Dreams have replaced 
the amped erogenous
moments, now searching

for new zones.

New Orleans — Sensitivity   3 comments

new-orleans-street-intensity-recovered-blog-iiComputer Painting (New Orleans, December 2014) and video by kenne

I was born on the edge of the big muddy flow
my daddy was French, my mother creole
I’m slow and heavy underneath the sun
but I’m more than willing when the night time comes
I’m a well known street, I’m a marching drum
I’m a dancer, a preacher, a sophisticated bum
I’m a wild tchapatoula, a dice rolling judge
I’m a barker tryin’ to fool you into a late night club

I am the Big Easy I been hit by a storm
brought to my knees have mercy lord
I got soul I got heart
all alone I’m coming out of the dark
I am the Big Easy

— from I am The Big Easy by Ray Bonneville

New Orleans Bourbon Street Art V Johnny White's  blog-Johnny WHite’s Bar & Grill at the Corner of Bourbon & Orleans — Computer Art by kenne

“Light and music pour from doorways into the street,
here the carnival and there the quiet of candlelight.
A celebration of flesh, and an acknowledgement of the spirit.”

New Orleans Bourbon Street Art IV blog-Bourbon Street Trash — Computer Art by kenne

Bourbon street trash
stacked for pick-up
captured without a flash
part of my street mockup.

I don’t like to rhyme
and as you can tell
it’s a waste of my time
since I don’t excel.

My words are trash
They could stand a tune-up
from Mr. Balderdash,
which would make it a tossup.
