New Orleans Street Scene, A Photo Essay   Leave a comment

Over the years we have walked miles in the New Orleans French Quarter and the Garden District.
A few weeks ago while in Houston, we drove over to New Orleans for a couple of days.

there’s just something luring about this city.

Beach Fun-9-72Too much sun in the heat and humidity of the day can lead to heat stroke,
which is what happened to Jason. After playing several hours with much younger players
and possibly not staying hydrated enough, Jason (48 years young)
had to be taken to the hospital for a short stay. He was much better the next day.

State Of The Blues — Fotofest 2002 Revisited   Leave a comment

Going through some old photos, I found some I took at a 2002 Fotofest event, State of the Blues.
Since we were recently in Houston visiting family, I thought this would be an appropriate time to revisit the State of The Blues.

Last week we had two inches of snow in Tucson and 2.5 feet on Mt. Lemmon and by the time these images were taken most of the snow in the basin had melted. It was beautiful while it lasted.
