'Morning Commute' #1

Post by davechinn » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:04 pm

We were pleased to have the opportunity of getting around New Orleans by streetcar for one day. It's such a great way to see the city at a reasonable rate. I wasn't aware there were various names to the street car lines. https://www.neworleansonline.com/tools/ ... tcars.html?

My second ever street car ride, with San Francisco being the first, was an enjoyable event, thanks to Minnie and her husband Gene. Both are very knowledgeable with the aspects of the city. This image is just one of a series and was shot on the dark side and altho I had the choice to correct the under exposure, I chose not to because it's just not in me to come out of the darkness very often. I know Minnie will have and possibly share hers as well.

Love your dark interpretation Dave. The one I posted in the 52 project was almost as dark as yours. The blur works to a similar effect as what I was trying to create.

The streetcar is a bargain for a day's fun, full of interesting characters inside and out. I still wish we hadn't missed the guy running down the trolley tracks with the streetcar in hot pursuit and the driver yelling at him. I was too dumbfounded to remember to take a shot.

Of course I have streetcar photos! Here's one that features Dave Chinn himself, as a backdrop for another New Orleans Lady, whom I call Sleeping Beauty. Creatively processed in LR.

Dave, Love it. You knew I would. Interestingly, there is nothing NOLA-ish about it. Could be anywhere. But, for a morning commute, it has NYC and Tokyo put to shame. An easy workday ahead. Matt

Thanks Minnie, sometimes I actually DO have issues with the dark side.

Yes, I saw the runner and just never gave any thought to the scene. I have been guilty of such things while photographing sports. Being dumbfounded, watching the play rather that shooting the action. Sometimes I did capture something acceptable.

Love your streetcar image. I can be good for something .... sometimes !!! A backdrop for sure.

You made a nice contrast for the napping lady.

I admit I took every advantage of Mr. Chinn in my photos. You will likely see another.

I've been blessed to visit New Orleans twice, the first time I didn't understand it and the second I took off through the side streets and fell in love with it. It's a common theme to some of the cities I've visited now that I think about it, San Francisco, New York, and London, but I don't think I'll ever really understand NOLA until I've had a chance to visit it with the pM Crew. You're all amazing! S-
