Archival pot-pourri


This is the Arkansas Champion Gingko tree. It is alive and well on West Sixth Avenue in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, my home town. It is a male Gingko.

We’re making a swing through our archives this week – taking a look in the Arkansas Ozarks, the Arkansas Delta and the French Quarter in New Orleans – the message being that regardless of notoriety or lack thereof, if you look enough, wherever you are, you’ll find something neat, cool, and/or worthwhile. Speaking of which, this story started on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot-com where you’ll see a another view of the waterfall below, an old store, and a field of buttercups.


This is Haw Creek Falls in the Arkansas Ozarks, one of the easiest falls in the state to access. The falls are less than a hundred feet from the access road via well marked trails. It is one of the most photographed falls in Arkansas and is part of a national campground.

People in Woldenberg Park in New Orleans

I shot this during the 2005 French Quarter Fest in New Orleans in Woldenberg Park which sits on the banks of the Mississippi River adjacent to the French Quarter. Thought we are seeing a group of people at a fun pubic event, they seem not be aware of each other.

Take a look at your surroundings and see if you can spot what is lurking to be seen.

Thanks for looking,

Joe Dempsey,
Weekly Grist for the Eyes and Mind
