Isle de Jean Charles

Beautiful video from The New York Times about how a little town on the Louisiana coast confronts a future threatened by sinking shorelines and rising seas. Touching. Strikes me as more about the "sense of place" of these folks than climate change, but you decide.

Saw a breathtaking exhibition of the works of Clyde Connell yesterday at a small gallery in her hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana (thx, Jim). 


Purple Haze

I took this photo in July of 1968 at the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, Louisiana. Jimi Hendrix's first album, Are You Experienced, had just been released in the US, and I was a dedicated fan.  Hard to believe this concert even got booked - and that my parents let me go. [NOTE: I took the picture with an old Kodak Instamatic camera, and judging from the angle and the level of detail, it looks like I was standing right in front of the stage. I remember the concert was fantastic. And real loud.]
