Here is a quick sample of some of my best shots taken during the super-mega-crowded 2013 Carnival season! More can be found on my other site http://www.nolaPIC.com where prints can be purchased…’Til next year: Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!!!
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.
