'Ridin' on the City of New Orleans'

Post by davechinn » Mon Oct 22, 2018 11:50 am

This is a B&W slideshow I put together to the music/song by Arlo Guthrie - City of New Orleans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KU9Q7zA81I I tried to place images to the slideshow in relation to the lyrics, https://www.google.com/search?q=lyrics+ ... e&ie=UTF-8 but not a 100% success. There are repeat images, not so much to my liking, but since I haven't put one of these together in several years, I'll settle, for now.

I love it! You've artfully woven the street characters, local citizenry and tourists and even the dead folks into the streetcar narrative and told a story of the city itself. I think it would be fine to have one redundant slide that appeared at intervals throughout to help "get us back on the train" so to speak. It serves a useful function.

I notice you sneaked a few of me into this thing, you tricky fellow!

Someday you'll have to ride the real City of New Orleans and do a slideshow sketch of that train! I've often thought of it, and have some photos along the way, but haven't done enough to make it yet. Maybe you'll inspire me. :)

Thanks Minnie !!! This project was obviously unplanned. I wish I had more images that would fit in with the lyrics, also some video footage would have helped as well. Trying to familiarize myself with Adobe Premiere is a task on its own, so this was/is a practice session. Then again, all projects are going to be practice, which is so much needed I may attempt something else. I just have to think it more through.

I would love to ride the real "City of New Orleans", and if I ever do, you know there will be an updated version. Hope this does inspire you to complete one and I'm sure it will be outstanding.
