I just added three new pictures of the Holt cemetery in New Orleans to the Gallery named “New Orleans Cemeteries” on my e-commerce site www.nolaPIC.com! To see more New Orleans photography and purchase high quality prints please visit www.nolaPIC.com
The same gallery contains other images taken at Lake Lawn cemetery and Cypress Grove cemetery in New Orleans. High quality edition prints can be ordered online, framed, matted and with non-glare glass at very affordable prices. Many other different Louisiana subjects are available online as well, including Fine Art pictures of the French Quarter, City Park and Second Lines in New Orleans.
Now…About Holt Cemetery: It’s basically a potter’s field– the final resting place for some of New Orleans poor and indigent peoples for over a century. Because it’s a cemetery for the poor, people are buried in the ground rather than housed in the mausoleums you see throughout the city’s scenic cemeteries. More prosperous dead people rot in fancy tombs, but most of the graves here are personally decorated with bed frames, brightly-painted piles of earthly possessions, wooden headstones, and planter boxes, among other touching displays.

Thanks to a very low humidy record during the past weekend (unheard of for Louisiana in August!), I shot a few (IMHO) great images with the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM, at the Hale Boggs Mississippi River Bridge in Luling , LA and in the French Quarter in New Orleans, LA. The small slideshow doesn’t do any justice, since the images should be really viewed at larger size to fully appreciate the feel them and the dreamy bokeh. Open edition prints are for sale and available from 8″x12″ to very large prints sized @ 20″x30″ and can be ordered and shipped in USA and Europe.
Please be sure to always check out my gallery of available images nolaPIC.com since new photos are added on a weekly basis .
