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.

On Thursday, October 28, 2010, the city of New Orleans lost a great man and a wonderful musician. The world will not be the same without Walter Payton Jr.
Born and raised in New Orleans’ Uptown neighborhoods, Walter’s first brushes with Preservation Hall came in the early sixties when Allan Jaffe would lend him his sousaphone for gigs with the Eureka, Apollo, and Olympia Brass Bands. After receiving advanced instruction from Robert Rohe at Xavier College, Walter went on to perform on several hit records, including Lee Dorsey’s “Working in a Coal Mine” and Aaron Neville’s “Tell It Like It Is.”
Walter Payton also served as a teacher in the New Orleans public school system for twenty-five years, where he had the opportunity to instruct a young Ben Jaffe in the ways of the bass.

Ladies and Gentlemen I’m very glad to announce my latest fine art photography work shot on Canal Street in New Orleans!

Since I have been waiting quite a while (weeks!) to get this photo done I’m very pleased with the results! Not only the magic twilight and angle makes the photo quite unique, but the never seen subject itself is a newer  one  that I have never seen done here! I got a little soaked and had to be a contortionist to get to shoot this image, but as always, hard work always pays off and as matter of facts I can’t stop staring at it! It is available as an open edition print at nolaPIC.com (my online fullfillment website). This killer New Orleans skyline image features Canal Street with the bright red streetcar we all know or at least have heard of, in the foreground,  and the central business district in the background. To see another KILLER panorama (taken from the west bank instead) please click here!!!

On Sunday August 8th, as part of the 2010 Satchmo Summerfest, held every year in New Orleans to celebrate the life, music and legacy of New Orleans’ native son, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, I had the privilege to attend and photograph another great event! Although the weather was 99F with heat index as high as 105F to 110F, after the parade started, everyone seemed to enjoy the second line and music as usual and forget how hot and miserable it was. Someone said once…If you don’t know why New Orleanians aren’t afraid to go to Hell, you never been down there in the middle of the summer! Please see some of the images I shot at the second line and do not forget that all comments are highly appreciated! These images and many more are available as fine art prints (also framed) at my other site nolaPIC.com.

I will make sure next year to be there in time at 10 AM for the Jazz Mass, since this year I have only caught the end of it and I wished so bad I made it in…The church was packed!!! See the video below it’s the very end of the Satchmo Jazz Mass right before I sshot the image above of Jennifer Jones leading the Second Line out of the church. Video shot by Ricky Riccardi a Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong aficionado.

On January 30, 2010 I attended a killer Second Line in Treme, New Orleans. Although it was very cold  (for Louisiana standards that is) I had the opportunity to take some killer and unique shots while HBO was filming for their new tv series: Treme. To view all the shots and/or purchase high quality prints, please visit my other site www.nolaPIC.com. and If you are not familiar with HBO ‘s Treme please read below.

If  you lived in New Orleans, you would have known by now, that soon another motion pictures will be added to the long list of the many others that have already been shot in the Big Easy. Treme, is the name of the new HBO series, co-created by “The Wire” David Simon, (among its writers is also New Orlenian Tom Piazza) takes place three months after Hurricane Katrina, where the residents of New Orleans, including musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians and ordinary New Orleanians try to rebuild their lives, their homes and their unique culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane. The series is scheduled to premiere April 11th 2010 on HBO. The video below lives me salivating for more, it says so much without saying much at all…oh and the music…Does Wynton Marsalis ring a bell?!

The following images below were taken on the set of HBO’s Treme first season, and while I wasn’t actually working for HBO or the Discovery Channel (next gallery below Treme’s) I’m displaying them here to show that if I can get the job done without even being a crew member when it’s even harder to be out of the way and yet, manage to cature the action … I can get the job done period :).

I have been waiting for these type of moody and gloomy light for quite a while and if you live here, you are well aware that it does not happen that often. I walked in the French Quarter for a long time, I was sore and soaked but as you will see from the photos it was well worth it. Let’s pray for some snow on the South Shore now.

Pictures of Holt Cemetery in New Orleans

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.
