– “Summer is really here. The malaise you can cut with a
knife, but then there is the rage and anger and fear that
get in the way.

I miss New Orleans.

Yesterday a young man came by my house on a bike. No tire,
riding on the rim. He lived here before the storm and used
to hang out on my porch with the other little terrors that
lived here in my neighborhood.

He said he was looking for them, where are they? Who knows” Karen 2007

* Frank Lotz-Miller, 5×7 view camera, cherry wood, and brass , custom series of 4×5/5×7/8×10 large format cameras

made to acommadate the first Linhof, Schneider f.8 90mm swa (super wide angulon) lens. Mr. Lotz-Miller used his cameras to photograph the “New South” of Houston, Dallas and Atlanta new super architecture, and New Orleans in the 70’s and 80’s. I asked him for a job once, he had made maybe a dozen of these camera’s , of each, and had boxes of them in back of his yellow two story shotgun house, downtown lakeside a couple houses off the corner of Magazine St. and Washington …i will check on that location
