Photo of Mardi Gras Day in the French Quarter of New Orleans
To take this image on Mardi Gras day I had to sit in a very unique spot to get this particular angle that I was after. Let’s just say that sidewalks are pretty “sticky” any day, on Mardi Gras Day that would be an understatement…but hey i got what I wanted!

this black and white photo is not too shabby either, actually I love it, and I think I may even like it better than the color one.

2014 Krewe of Zulu Pictures !

April 1st 2014

What an incredible Mardi Gras it was, my love/obsession for shooting with the rain came through this 2014 Mardi Gras day and on top of that I really got up and close to my all time favorite Krewe of  Zulu for some unreal pictures! It was VERY cold and miserable, ( at least for New Orleans standards) but nothing great comes easy in life, does it…I suffered more than you can imagine, trust me on dat,  but some of the Zulu photographs are in my opinion simply amazing! I’ll let you decide! ok?

The “usual suspects” in Jackson Square, and Royal Street. Guest Star on the broom, Dr. Love !

January 22, 2014

Most street street musicians and artists in new Orleans performs where the tourists are, so they can make a living selling CDs and making a few tips while they do what they love. Beside the “first French Quarter stop” of Jackson Square, right in front of the St. Louis Cathedral, next, comes Royal Street, where most galleries are. There you will find performers lined up during busy weekends. Some of the musicians and artists line show up to hold their spot the night before just to make sure they have the prime spot available on crowded weekends!

Black and white photos of the French Quarter

I usually love for my images a muted and slightly unsaturated palette of colors, but when the light is just right, and the contrast  screams at me, black and white conveys in my opinion a more timeless and mysterious feel to the photographs, and in this case, on these shots below, I think black and white worked just fine! Yes the French Quarter was very cold and wet by the way!

On Thursday, October 28, 2010, the city of New Orleans lost a great man and a wonderful musician. The world will not be the same without Walter Payton Jr.
Born and raised in New Orleans’ Uptown neighborhoods, Walter’s first brushes with Preservation Hall came in the early sixties when Allan Jaffe would lend him his sousaphone for gigs with the Eureka, Apollo, and Olympia Brass Bands. After receiving advanced instruction from Robert Rohe at Xavier College, Walter went on to perform on several hit records, including Lee Dorsey’s “Working in a Coal Mine” and Aaron Neville’s “Tell It Like It Is.”
Walter Payton also served as a teacher in the New Orleans public school system for twenty-five years, where he had the opportunity to instruct a young Ben Jaffe in the ways of the bass.
