A Selfie at the Haunted Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana

I’ve written a few times before my love of haunted places. Although I rarely have an experience, there’s usually a different feeling about a place once inside. I’ve stayed at the notoriously and supposedly haunted Myrtles a couple of times. The first time I had a minor experience — one hardly worth mentioning. The second time was even less mentionable, however the difference in the feeling of the rooms of where I was staying and the ones from another side of the house were noticeable and defined by a heavy feeling in the air. The next morning, after speaking with the people who had stayed in that part of the house, we learned that they didn’t experience anything unusual. My friends and I slept like babies. Either way, it was a fun trip marked by late night drinking, louder than loud bullfrogs and cicada and a foot dip in the fountain.

Musee Magazine Publishes “Anxious Heart of a New Orleans Icon” and “The Stranger”

Needless to say, I feel pretty special being included in this 2 part issue dedicated to Richard Avedon. This has been one of my favorite publishings because it is a magazine of such quality that I kinda feel like the awkward guy in a room full of people who are ridiculously talented.

Anyway, a big thanks to the uber talented photographer Kyria Lydia Abrahams , writing guru Michael Stahl and the editors of Musee Magazine .

(My photos are on pg. 143)

Click on the picture to go straight to the issue. When you’re done with this one, go to the other four. The articles and photos are addictive. Trust me.

The Anxious Heart of a New Orleans Icon — Own This

I’m selling prints but doing it differently than what I did the last time. What I’m doing now is keeping short runs of each print.

Every print is lovingly birthed — from conception to the moment the image is made and until it is in your hands. The versions of prints that are in the store will only be available until it is out of stock. Other versions of the prints will be made, including various photo papers and sizes. It’s my way to keep things exciting and to ensure your exclusive ownership of each print. My goal, also is to give you great, museum-quality prints that are made on some of the finest paper and at a price that is very attractive (range $20-$35).

First available print is THE ANXIOUS HEART OF A NEW ORLEANS ICON. CLICK ON PHOTO TO GO TO STORE.
