Re: New Orleans Ladies #1

NOLA is a character of it's own made up of those that live there, those that visit, and those somewhere in-between. This is a beautiful, if sad, representation of the spirit that exists in a city that has gone through so much and survives! S- I totally agree. It is a survival city, with a playing f...

Re: Cityscape - Jackson Square at 10 Past 7

This is one of the iconic shots in NOLA and I love that you included the people to give it dimension. It must have been early to have missed the horse and buggy drivers, and I can only wonder how high up you were on the steps. As a side, I won a bet standing there, well sort of. A shoeshine boy spo...

Re: Untitled

I had considered a title but realized it was political and thought to leave it unsaid. All the clues are in the photo. "What if God was one of us? Just a slob like one of us" - One of Us by Joan Osborne Would you believe that I often listen to that song when I'm editing street photographs. It is on...

Dam Bird Christmas Decorations

I did this one for my other 52 project today. The topic was Sparkles, and I could not find a sparkle this morning for pay. My week was up, and I'd spent all my time at the Craft festival and my grandson's birthday party. So, I took a dam bird picture and used some sparkly stuff I got in a Christmas ...

Re: 'BackWoodsMan'

While out yesterday morning with beautiful spring like weather,I felt I should take advantage of it for some past time street shots. Altho, I didn't come away with much, I was able to capture this one. I'm not very happy with it, but posting anyway to see what sticks and what doesn't. This gentlema...

Re: Broken Dreams

I concur with reality and find it well presented minniev....consider a crop down to just above the grass or top of mailbox and maybe some cloning..for me the back ground people are drawing me from the subject...... Thanks Frank. My goal, misguided or not, was to show some contrast between this poor...

Re: 'Duchess the Fortune Teller'

Here is an entirely different version of this young lady, in the Kitchen Sink style, without the mystery and finesse of Dave's elegant version. Minnie, I'm liking your version much better. The kitchen sink speaks high volumes, but yet still sets the stage for this lovely tarot reader. The other one...

Re: Dave's Project 52

My continuing efforts for experimentation of the SkyStar ferris wheel. Yesterday morning I caught myself back and with the sun behind the wheel for week #47. I was making an attempt to practice with a polarizer filter to substitute for a neutral density filter, knowing full well there is no compari...

Re: Broken Dreams

Came across this one while looking for Dave's fortuneteller, and decided to post it. I hesitated because it is a sad one. New Orleans, Jackson Square. Sad as it is Minnie, I still love it. It speaks high volumes of awareness and as you know, it's reality that probably will never change. Someone, so...
