It reminds me of the places we used to go
But all I’ve got is a photograph
And I realize you’re not coming back anymore”

Ringo and George Harrison  wrote the  song “Photograph”  in 1973.

The song, “Everything I Have is Yours”  was written in 1933 by Harold Admonson (lyrics) and Burton Lane (music)  for the movie “Dancing Lady.”

Julie London also recorded it for her album “Nice Girls Don’t Stay for Breakfast.”   (Say it isn’t so Julie.)

In my mind I see this lady with a colorful umbrella and a New Orleans jazz band marching behind her as she goes round and round around Stokes’ statue.  The band would play  “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In” over and over, with a wide variety of lyrics.

Sometimes “hot ” lyrics would be substituted in New Orleans such as:

“I used to have a playmate

“Who would walk and talk with me

“But since she got religion

“She’s  scared the c*** outta me.”

The New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band:

Maeve had just returned to the Grove after participating in a “PorchFest” in A. Park. 9/28/19


It’s not exactly “girls in their summer clothes” because Fall is just  5 days old, but it did hit 80 today in the Grove.  We spotted Maeve down one of the streets off Main, on her cell phone.  I asked her if I could photograph her for our “Portraits in the Grove” series when a car pulled up.   It was her parents—just in time.   I gave them a Blogfinger card, and they were pleased for the photo shoot   (I took 3 frames and was done.)  Maeve is 20 years old and a natural model.

And, by the way, the idea of a PorchFest is terrific.  They had small musical groups performing all afternoon on porches throughout  A. Park.   That would be a good idea for us to emulate as another musical event aimed mostly towards the residents of the Grove.
