Shadow cat, chasing around the dark edges
Of the night time yard.
Following rustles and squeaks, green eyes
Glowing in the dark.
Frogs croak and creak
And declare their readiness
In the woods beside the house.
City noises quiet,
Shamed into silence
This challenge is a bit trickier than most, it’s supposed to be about telling a story in one shot. This picture was taken in New Orleans, walking around the French Quarter. To me, this one tells several stories. I did not intentionally get myself in the reflection, but that’s one of the stories, me taking pictures of anything interesting I see. There’s a guy in the reflection looking at a motorcycle. Then there’s this defunct gallery with an empty easel, broken window and this creepy hooded figure holding something in a gloved hand. And a well-worn trumpet.
I have a very flexible cat. He was chasing a moth and it flew up and around him. I just happened to be taking a picture of him at the time.
Every horse has a little love in it’s heart.
This is in the sculpture garden in New Orleans City Park. The horse is made of driftwood cast into bronze. The LOVE is the iconic sculpture you’ve seen in graphics for years.
During our recent trip to New Orleans, we actually stayed in Gretna, across the river. The first night I was searching Foursquare for a place for dinner and I found a little place called Gattuso’s. It sounded nice so we went there and liked it well enough we ate dinner there all but one night of the trip. This little oyster was out front.
