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!

As promised in  my previous post, here are some of my “newest” photos finally available for purchase at www.nolaPIC.com as fine art prints or canvas gallery wraps. They are a a selection of my best images taken from 2015 to 2016 in New Orleans and surrounding areas. Please click on each individual image to be taken on my other site to order.

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.

Louisiana Swamp Photography

The depth and richness of photographic subjects found in Louisiana are well beyond what you might just encounter on a day to day basis in the French Quarter. I have to admit it, lately I have been shooting mostly urban scenery myself, but  shooting in the swamps and bayous is something that one must absolutely experience! Here are just a few shots I have taken, thanks to Scott, a Friend photographer . These pictures of course do not do justice, you can’t hear how quite and peaceful this place is, or see the wildlife all around you, in the sky or in the water.  It is simply beautiful and breathtaking to witness nature at its best…

Just about when I was getting worried and bored with that everyday’s bright light that we have 90% of the time down here in New Orleans, (this year we didn’t have much fog, cold or rain)…Here comes a killer week, full of thick fog followed by a very cold short rainy spell with that mist that’s just perfect for shooting around the French Quarter. Yay! I kept on going and got some killer photographs in New Orleans and in the swamps! I will post the images taken in the swamps on my next post…

A Beautiful, Yet Scary Oak Alley …

I have been trying to get this mystical shot for quite some time, I don’t just drop by and snap…I have a shot in my mind’s eye and try to conquer it. I have been waking up at 5 am and drove to the spot 4 times, but as always, you cannot plan what nature will do…Besides, humans are always in the way to screw things up too. I met the infamous Murphy there a couple of times. That son of a gun is no good and always in the way! I still ended up getting exactly what I wanted I can now finally say it LOUD & CLEAR:).

I was so happy when I finally got these two shots of this beautiful, yet scary alley of oak trees !

St Louis Cathedral in a gumbo of fog, sunshine and clouds…

St Louis Cathedral Fog photography

I  don’t ever get tired of shooting the French Quarter in New Orleans, maybe because it’s so European and I feel at home, maybe just because it’s so unique! In the middle of  it all, first  to catch the sunrise and the fog poured in by the River is the St. Louis Cathedral. I particularly love these new photos I took since the fog is patchy  and not  “layered” evenly everywhere. The St. Louis Cathedral is lit by the sun, everything else is  in the fog, yet Decatur Street is still in the shade, and the sky is blue with clouds in it too! There is a “whole lot of light going on”, in other words…A gumbo of light :). Please do not forget to scroll down on this post, there are also a couple of other shots that I LOVE, one of Decatur St. at sunrise and one of the New Orleans Skyline , yep, French Quarter again…

2011 Satchmo Summerfest

Click image to purchase a print on nolaPIC.com

 

This is the second time that I have attended and shot the Satchmo Jazz Mass at the St. Augustine Church in Treme. The event is part of the annual Satchmo Summerfest which is held every year at the old US Mint on Esplanade Ave. in New Orleans. To be perfectly clear last year I didn’t actually attend “all the way”, since I wasn’t expecting the church to be so crowded so early, I ended up getting there a bit too late to get in, so I was stuck outside waiting for the function to end  so I could shoot the second line!  As many of you  know, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong was a native New Orleanian, and that is the reason why we celebrate his birthday with a Jazz Mass, second lines and music, (lots of it) . To see more pictures from the 2011 Satchmo Summerfest are here.

Getting up “very” early allowed me to position myself close the brass band, on the exact side of the church where I had planned to be on…Actually when I got there, St. Augustine Church was still closed :). I’m pretty satisfied with the photos, hard work always pays off!

This image of St Louis Cathedral makes me VERY happy since I waited for quite a long time yesterday to capture this photo. I have seen many shots of St Lous Cathedral, but the light, weather and angle in this photo, makes it very unique,  moody and romantic. It was very well worth it to deal with rain and super high humidity yay! It is available as a 10″x 10″ or 20″x 20″ fine art print or as a 20″x20″ giclees (canvas gallery wrap).

Click image to purchase a print on nolaPIC.com

If you have read the famous book a “A Confederacy of Dunces” you should already know about these Lucky Dogs carts that are all over the French Quarter selling “gourmet hot dogs”. I tried to eat one once, but since I wasn’t drunk ( I don’t ever drink) it tasted pretty nasty to me. Maybe I forgot the relish , who knows, maybe it is true that people just eat them to soak up some the handgranades  they have had :). Anyway, getting back to business, this image is available as a fine art print here.
