Life on the Tracks

As a photographer your vision, the story you want to tell will hopefully translate to your viewer. How you compose the image and frame your subject will help to tell that story.  The streetcar image that I posted on Monday is a very good example. That image was bright and cheery and even a bit whimsical in the way that I choose process it (you can see it here).  The image that I took seconds later tells a very different story. By stepping back a little and zooming out this is the scene that I saw.

A Street Car Named….

….ok it’s not desire but it’s the riverfront street along the river walk in New Orleans.

French Quarter Vespa

I just loved everything about this little scene… the green shutters, the moulding around the windows, the Vespa with the stuffing coming out of the seat. It was just yelling at me to take a picture 🙂

On a side note have you heard about HDR Tennis on Facebook? HDR Tennis is a friendly game where the administrators of the page (all photographers) work on the same set of brackets that is provided by one of the admins. The different versions are then posted and then the public gets to vote on their favourite version. The brackets are also shared  with the public who can download them, process the image using their own HDR tools and putting their particular spin on the final image. The image is then shared and voted on. Game 31 has just been posted and yours truly supplied the brackets this time around. The Admins provided some fantastic and inspirational final images. Check it out and have fun. 

I usually share HDR Tennis announcements and images that I don’t post on my site to my Edith Levy Photography Facebook page. If you haven’t yet come on over and “Like” my page.

Jazz It Up In NOLA Travel Poster

I was going through my New Orleans images, looking for one that really  embodies NOLA, in order to create a unique travel poster. A jazz club, Bourbon Street, French Quarter Architecture…what more could I have asked for.

You can have a look here at some of the other posters I’ve created.

iPhone Friday – Satchmo

I downloaded a new app the other day called Mirrorgram and it does just as the name implies. You can edit existing images that are in your camera roll or use the camera and mirror your world in real-time.

This is a statue of Louis Armstrong at the New Orleans airport. I figured 2 Louis’ are better than one.

Have a great weekend everyone and for those that are snowed in today…stay safe and stay warm 🙂

Fleur de Paris in NOLA

I did have something else to post today but given that New Orleans was thrust into the spotlight this Superbowl weekend I thought this was perhaps more apropos. Some how though I don’t think that Royale St. was as quiet…
