New Orleans — Summer 2011

Date August 4, 2011

On something of a lark, I flew down to New Orleans for a long weekend a couple of weeks ago to meet up with some industry peers whom I mostly know through Twitter and blogs, but most of whom I’d met in person at least once. It turned out to be a pretty interesting trip. I snapped a few pictures that seemed worth sharing:

And…this just made me laugh. It’s a sign on the gate to the police station in the French Quarter. You might be a tourist area if the police department not only sells T-shirts, but advertises that fact:

    Your HDR photos have all been interesting/intriguing/artistic, but this blog-posted one of the tombs in Lafayette Cemetery is the most astonishing: it looks more like a painting or a drawing than a photograph! We paddled with a well-known (published) local photographer a few mornings ago – George is elderly now, but he had a reasonably large digital camera along and, when I asked, confessed to doing some “doctoring” after the fact; so he has stayed somewhat current – and Dad got to telling him about your HDR photography. George was not aware of that but seemed fascinated. If we get a chance, we’ll show him some of what you have taken.
