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…

The Cutting Season and The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow book covers. Two Novels Published by HarperCollins Publishers

I ‘am excited to announce that this (killer) shot of mine is being used on the cover  of the novel “The Cutting Season” by Attica Locke! Above is my picture which is available as a fine art photo or canvas by clicking on it you will be taken to my other website http://www.nolaPIC.com (scroll down to see the other book cover of the second book published by HarperCollins “The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow”.

 To purchase the book “The Cutting season” by Attica Locke, please click on the thumbnail to the left and you will be taken on Amazon. The novel is available as a hardcover book or in kindle format (digital).

“Release Date: September 18, 2012 – HarperCollins

In Black Water Rising, Attica Locke delivered one of the most stunning and sure-handed fiction debuts in recent memory, garnering effusive critical praise, several award nominations, and passionate reader response. Now Locke returns with The Cutting Season, a riveting thriller that intertwines two murders separated across more than a century.

Caren Gray manages Belle Vie, a sprawling antebellum plantation that sits between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, where the past and the present coexist uneasily. The estate’s owners have turned the place into an eerie tourist attraction, complete with full-dress re-enactments and carefully restored slave quarters. Outside the gates, a corporation with ambitious plans has been busy snapping up land from struggling families who have been growing sugar cane for generations, and now replacing local employees with illegal laborers. Tensions mount when the body of a female migrant worker is found in a shallow grave on the edge of the property, her throat cut clean.

As the investigation gets under way, the list of suspects grows. But when fresh evidence comes to light and the sheriff’s department zeros in on a person of interest, Caren has a bad feeling that the police are chasing the wrong leads. Putting herself at risk, she ventures into dangerous territory as she unearths startling new facts about a very old mystery—the long-ago disappearance of a former slave—that has unsettling ties to the current murder. In pursuit of the truth about Belle Vie’s history and her own, Caren discovers secrets about both cases—ones that an increasingly desperate killer will stop at nothing to keep buried.

Taut, hauntingly resonant, and beautifully written, The Cutting Season is at once a thoughtful meditation on how America reckons its past with its future, and a high-octane page-turner that unfolds with tremendous skill and vision. With her rare gift for depicting human nature in all its complexities, Attica Locke demonstrates once again that she is “destined for literary stardom” (Dallas Morning News).

This above is another image of mine ( taken on Esplanade Avenue in New Orleans )  which I have recently licensed to HarperCollins Publishers for the book cover  of the novel by Rita Leganski ” The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow” –  A lyrical debut novel set in historic New Orleans that follows a mute boy whose special gift reveals family secrets and forgotten voodoo lore. Available on Amazon as a Paperback or kindle edition on February 26, 2013. The novel is available for Pre-orders now. To purchase the photo as a fine art print, please click it  and you will be taken to my other website http://www/nolaPIC.com

A magical debut novel from Rita Leganski, The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow”  is the tale of a mute boy whose gift of wondrous hearing reveals family secrets and forgotten voodoo lore, and exposes a murder that threatens the souls of those who love him.

Bonaventure Arrow didn’t make a peep when he was born, and the doctor nearly took him for dead. But he was listening, placing sound inside quiet and gaining his bearings. By the time he turns five, he can hear flowers grow, a thousand shades of blue, and the miniature tempests that rage inside raindrops. He also hears the voice of his dead father, William Arrow, mysteriously murdered by a man known only as the Wanderer.

Exploring family relics, he opens doors to the past and finds the key to a web of secrets that both hold his family together, and threaten to tear them apart.

Set against the backdrop of 1950s New Orleans, The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow is a magical story about the lost art of listening and a wondrous little boy who brings healing to the souls of all who love him.

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…

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…

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).

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.
