Lucky Dog

Post by minniev » Wed Oct 03, 2018 5:56 pm

This has a little of a cartoonish illustration layer blended in with the regular edit at a low opacity. I shot the couple at various times, and the outcome was usually the same. She sits by the hot dog cart reading while he paces frenetically, chain smoking, a few feet away.There was an extra character in this one, who resembled Otzi the mummified Iceman. All feedback appreciated.

love the brickwork treatment and colors, fits so well with the hotdog stand. It is cool how the blues play off the warm colors too.

Really like all the vertical lines and the cranky walking stick going its own way. Even the guys are like skinny poles. Since I have never been there, the tones capture for me my imagined picture of NO: other-worldly, ever present in the moment, moving sideways not ahead, waiting, biding time, hoping for a funeral to pass this way to jangle the day. Thanks. Matt

Thanks Piet. I edit my NOLA pictures with a lot of experiments that I wouldn’t try for dam birds or swamp shots.

Thank you. Good description. It is the alternate city, where anything goes, and yes, a parade is always coming soon.

Thanks Frank. The tire track was enhanced with Topaz Adjust and masked into the other stuff. All in fun. All hot dog stands in NOLA are Lucky Dog stands, and this has been true for over 50 years. They are a tradition in and of themselves. Though there are many Lucky Dog stands all over the French quarter and downtown area, this precise corner is the same location where I shot that cool couple on Dave's and my last visit, while he was busy dropping his camera onto the concrete and smashing it. So this stand does have a new manager.
