My last day in New Orleans was kinda crappy, the weather was really awful and it was raining badly almost all day long.
Fortunately that’s not necessarily bad for photography, in fact it helps to produce distinctive photos with great reflections and a different feel. You just need to be on the look and try to see different, despite the bad weather and because it was the first week of Mardi Gras the city was packed with visitors, every time the rain stopped people rushed outside… I wanted to make some photos around Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral that morning, but it turned an almost daunting task with all the people around.
I wandered around for a while, and I was not really happy with the results, so packed the camera and watched the crowds play around the square, then decided to leave and go towards the French Quarter, then is when I got closer to the iron fence/gate that surrounds the square and started to make these photos….
Now in post decided to make them black & white, I think they look much better than the color version, not sure if they convey the sense of place, but I like them so decided to make a quick post….
Hope you like them too… more photos of New Orleans coming soon….
