cgranger Was anybody looking up at the sky today around noon? A halo caused by refracted ice crystals (ice, above New Orleans in May??, hmmm). It's called a "22-degree halo" and it's from high altitude clouds. I was passing in front of Holy Name of Jesus Church on Loyola University's campus when I saw this. #sky #loyno #sun #neworleans #weather 4d

cgranger When you feel like life has thrown you a few obstacles think of Rox'E Homstad, right, who is deaf and blind. Doctors believe Homstad went blind due to a rare reaction to mold following Hurricane Katrina. Already versed in sign language due to growing up deaf, she now relies on her hands to feel the words communicated to her. I photographed her at a school in Slidell. Find out more about her inspirational story in Sunday's Times-Picayune and NOLA.com. #blind #life #inspiration #hope #deaf #love #photooftheday #signlanguage 7d
  •   waxxman Ah! Pitched a story on her last week to CBS! 6d
  •   cgranger Hey at @waxxman she is so nice and would be a great inspirational story. Let me know if it happens! 4d

cgranger Guess whose fingers? This hand has played with the likes of Elvis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison. It also forever sent rock n' roll down an entirely new path in the 1960s. Say hello to the hand of Jerry Lee Lewis who played at Jazz Fest on Saturday. #jazzfest #jerryleelewis #music #legend #sunrecords #neworleans 4w

  •   mauxfo I had a hard time photographing her today as her gospel set always brings me to tears. I'm not particularly religious but it really moves me year after year whether I'm in the photo pit or standing outside the tent 15 people deep in the back. That said I did get some nice shots early on, before the waterworks made it difficult to see through the viewfinder. Superb shot, Chris, too. You always capture the moment in the most unique way. 4w

cgranger I had the pleasure on a quiet, overcast New Orleans afternoon of photographing the Marigny home of Galactic bassist Robert Mercurio, his wife, Kate Palmer, and their dog, Arthur, for a TP/NOLA.com feature. Robert lounges back into a wall of fragrant jasmine growing over a wall along his house. His band will be playing at this weekend's Jazz Fest. #galactic #jazzfest #jazzfest2015 @galacticfunknola #music #portrait 1mon

cgranger Do you ever ponder how when you return to Jazz Fest the next morning the place is miraculously cleaned up? Most fest goers have left at this point, but starting around 8 pm an impressive army of workers clad in pink shirts line up side-by-side picking up the remains of the day. Except for the mud of course... #jazzfest #jazzfest2015 #neworleans #behindthescenes #portrait 1mon
