Someone tried to shoot my neighbor Donald. You have probably seen his photo on instagram or on here I’m sure. One of the bullets went through the front of my house and landed in the kitchen.

The strange thing is, I think we are so desensitized to gun violence its a week later and business as usual.

Comments Off on Skyline

I don’t know how many people in New Orleans know I used to do a lot of Skyline photography in New York. The intent behind most of my photography is to capture what the essence of a city is, In New York it was the city itself that defined my photography, in New Orleans its the people. Below is my TBT for the year.
