I was driving long the lake this week and stumbled across this place, it was a "colored" only beach in New Orleans from 1939-1965. It's overgrown and worse for the wear and only an echo of it's former self. There are some excellent WWW sites with more complete histories of the place if you are interested. There have been some recent proposals to rebuild the place as a modern day resort, but there does not seem to be much going on here. I am sure I'll be re-visiting the place in the future.

In rooting around the files tonight, looking for something else, I found these images from 2007. If I had known about them, I might have put one or more of them into the RAC exhibition. Shot with the D2x all in camera, the early work from the series. All shot out at my studio at Tyson with one of my favorite subjects.

I shot this portrait using my 4x5 and used some of the new Kodak Ektar 4x5 film and scanned it into the new Imacon scanner we have at the school house. I am planning on making some 40"x60" prints and interested to see if the scans hold up to that size. This could be a new portfolio of work for me.

Along the river, south of St. Louis from the Illinois side.
