For some strange reasons I keep on getting attracted by the Maison LeMonnier. It’s really my European (Italian!) descent that I think drags me here. When shooting in the French Quarter I somehow end up shoot this corner house!  Something about the paint job, its balconies and shutters that really, and I mean, REALLY, remind me my early life growing up in Italy…I truly love this building which they still call the skyscraper since it was the very first three stories high building in the French Quarter.

I actually have a couple more of Maison LeMonnier (!) taken during Mardi Gras but I won’t post them here on this blog, due to time  and bandwidth constraints. Please check my site http://www.nolaPIC.com to see more and/or to purchase fine art prints.

The one and only… Jazz Legend Mr. Pete Fountain!
While walking in the French Quarter very bright and early,  heard some music and I practically bumped into Pete Fountain with his marching band and float! He was ready to be getting interviewed by a local News Station WWLT and was nice enough to strike a pose for me.

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…

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 !

Dr John at Tipitina’s

One April 20th, 2011, on the one year memorial of the worst man-made enviromental disaster in our nation’s history, coastal residents are coming together to honor the 11 men that died & those that fought to protect our coast. After town hall meetings and debates the musics had to roll at Tipitina’s in the French Quarter. Here below are few of the best shots of Dr. John performing (click on each image to see them larger or to purchase prints on my other  site nolaPIC.com).

New Orleans...the magic city at twilight. Click to see larger and/or purchase print.

I have been drooling for a quite awhile now for these types of images and have been wanting to take them facing downward to Canal St. in New Orleans at twilight. Canal Street is very unique, so long and wide, but it is also very hard to shoot unless your are up high, and I mean way up there. These shots here were taken from the top of the World Trade Center building at the foot of Canal Street where the view is just incredible and beyond description; you  will be surprised also how strong the northerly winds blows when it gets funneled between the rows of buildings on Canal St.!  The images are available in square or rectangular format. Please click each of them to the to my other site where you can view them larger and/or purchase them.

Never Let a Good Rainy Day Go to Waste…

Oh wow it was so worth it, yet again I got some killer shots in the French Quarter  during this last winter storm brushing up southeast Louisiana! Although it didn’t bring any of the white powdery stuff that we get to see down here so rarely, it brought once again the magic lights and moods of desolated streets and alleys… all of these photos below are available as fine art prints at www.nolaPIC.com Click any image below to get to the fine art print, where you can view them larger and/or purchase them.
