the quintessential french quarter shot…

I was always on the lookout for any streetscapes, that when photographed, would instantly say “French Quarter, New Orleans.”  I wanted to create a mood that would take you back to the quarter long after you had gone home.

This one was on Royal Street.  I like the mood created by the downcast light from the gaslamp.  Contrast that light, in color and direction, with the light on the second story.

 The tarot readers’ table and chair are set up in the lower right corner; these add nice color and balance to the scene.
