"I had a heart attack a few years ago..... and while the doctors were putting the wires into my pacemaker, my heart stopped. I was dead. I went far, far from here, in the clouds, and my mom was there. She said 'John, you're coming with me, it's your time. Your family is waiting for you.' I said 'Momma, I don't want to go yet!' So we debated for who knows how long, until finally she let me stay. So I wrote a book, about my journey into the beyond." #peopleofnola #lowernine @lowernineorg @fsmlittlerock #fsmunited

@notrex: @notrex Starting the day off in my neighborhood. Some call it Carrollton, but I've always called it Uptown... end of streetcar line. Starting the day at one of my favorites. The servers @camellia_grill always are up for lively conversation. #nolaeats
Social media allows us to see how others experience New Orleans. A few accounts I enjoy are @nolasapiens @rhrphotography and @smellcircus.
Who do you recommend? #nolashoutout

BLACK CODES. This is how the south kept slavery going after slavery was abolished. I couldn't film the tour guide so I recorded her words. Listen to what she said. When you see horrible neighborhoods with black people and the news says that we haven't assimilated to America's way of life...this is the reason. Black people did what they could, but as you can see there were laws created just to stop people from progressing. The towns they built were beautiful but they eventually were burned down. Look up the Tulsa Oklahoma massacre. #prisonpipeline #slaverytoprison #nola #neworleans #canon #canon80d #canon50mm #photography #photoshoot #photooftheday #photographerlife #travel #gateway2thegods #lovepeople #peopleofnola #love #goodpeople #slavery #slaves #racism #blackcodes #freelabor #plantation #willielynchletter #40acres #brownpeople #blackpeople #creole #transatlanticslavetrade #blackwallstreet

I see this guy in front of the cathedral at Jackson Square all the time. He plays this instrument called the "kora". He wanted to give it a bass sound, so he modified it by adding guitar and bass strings. The sound is beautiful.

Experiences in New Orleans:
1. If you walk around with a fancy camera, people will definitely want to pose for you.
2. If you bring your dog down bourbon street the drunk people will want to pet her.
3. People will give you money and buy you drinks if they get to pet the aforementioned dog.

No Full moon Trap dance, event, it ended at 12am, lame. So instead me and Adela hanging at the Dive having a cider and much needed girl time.

Adela took over the jukebox... Covenant's-"I stand alone"blast out and so bassy. It makes me happy. :) I might have to break out goth stomping in the bar... #prettyladies

"So many people left the Lower Ninth and never came back...We started two years after Katrina with the mission to rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward, and so far we've build 84 homes from the ground up and done many partial renovations to this neighborhood. We're still waiting on the 'loaves and fishes' provision of generators, tools, whatever we need." ••• To see how their mission is going, go to @lowernineorg or #iamlowernine to find out how New Orleans is rebuilding this historic district. #peopleofnola #fsmunited @fsmlittlerock

"Max in the Rain" is blurry portrait #4! For anyone curious about the process, I make my friends stand in the rain while I take pictures through a car windshield (or I have an assistant pour water on the windshield when it's not raining). Max's portrait needed about a million reference photos before we found the right one!

"Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings." -Nelson Mandela
