Jackson Square – Street Performers

One of the things I most enjoyed while in New Orleans was strolling through Jackson Square and watching the street performers.You can spend an entire afternoon there and be entertained by musicians and dancers not to mention painters, palm readers and psychics. This gentleman was calling over a young girl that was watching to dance with him.

    The street performers in New Orleans are quite entertaining and unique. You have captured those qualities in this shot Edith.

    I have trouble staying calm when I try to photograph strangers on the street. My hands start to shake because I’m afraid I’m going to get busted! It’s worth the fear though, sometimes you get a great shot…like this one. Love it!

    • Thanks Elisa. It’s much easier when they’re performing because they’re used to people taking their picture.

        Now there’s an idea, just pretend everyone is a street performer. I guess, in a way…it’s true!

        Take good care,
