one doesn't have to be out in the middle of nowhere to find desolation. 2½ years after Katrina flooded New Orleans, the St. Roch market in the 9th ward is still closed. a dejected man takes shelter under the overhang of the porch as leaden skies deliver on the promise of even more rain.

as one who has the good fortune to dwell in a place of great beauty it has been my wish to record it and to try to share it with any who might be interested. the images you see here are an attempt to capture what can be seen, whether in some mundane form that happens to catch the eye -- and lens -- or as a consequence of unusual circumstance or opportunity.
