I’ll be showing some new street photography with my dog Blake Haney – he’ll be showing some of his new travel photography. The work i will be showing is street photos from my days on the road with my band, Rotary Downs. Images from 2 New York tours, and one Texas Toast Tour last year.

I am listening to WWL (105.3fm) now as i do every morning to get my news from Bob and Monica, John “spud” McConnell, and Garland Robinnet..i love it. it’s local character who know alot and call out our fucked up City Hall motherfuckers all the time.
This morning is amazing…after a great Saints win last night, and a dissapointing LSU loss, LA football is on the mind. So, Spud is talking with Deke “Big Chief” Bellavia about the BCS system, the saints, and LSU and how the BCS is messed up and you hear Spud say:
“Terence! come in here.” Contemporary Jazz Great, and Ambassador of New Orleans (i just gave him that title) Terence Blanchard walks in , puts on a headphone and it begins.

Thier talkin about football. i love it.
Voodoo Fest is getting better at what they do, and this year showed that with giving Ron Ron and Ben Jaffe each a tent. You really can’t go wrong with that. Ron Rona is the infamous Ronnie Numbers of The Bingo Show, and Ben Jaffe runs Preservation Hall. I spent most of my time at the these tents when i wasn’t shooting the big name acts around the festival. It was a great experience being able to play the Voodoo Fest on Saturday and enjoy all the free stuff that goes w/ it…we also played DBa that night to a swelling costumed crowd. fun weekend. here are some pics.
Seldom i get to be in touch with the many Indians i have photographed…A. They are hard to get in touch with, B. When you do it’s hard to stay in touch…but Juan and i keep running into each other on the streets, in feathers and not. I had the honor of walking him over to my small display of indian images in the Grandstands of this years Jazz Fest to show him a shot i had of him two years before. This was the first time he had seen it, and i him since then –
