LA Photographer in New Orleans: Moonrise over Lake Pontchartrain

For this last post featuring our New Orleans trip, we leave you with a photo of the moonrise over Lake Pontchartrain one day after a full moon.  You can see a few stars dotting the night sky, and I love the way the moving water looks from this six-second exposure.

Chi - Absolutely gorgeous. Makes me want to visit New Orleans again, though I fear the pounds I’d gain by even a short trip there.January 25, 2011 – 7:09 pm

Marci - It looks like the water is moving as the moon is shimmering on it! Amazing photo!!January 20, 2011 – 1:05 pm

LA Photographer in New Orleans: French Quarter, Preservation Hall, & Dixieland Jazz

I love spending time in the New Orleans French Quarter.  I love the distinctive architecture, the beauty of St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square, and, most of all, the music.  The street musicians are so much fun to listen to, and on this trip, I also got a chance to go to Preservation Hall for […]

katie - Love the picture of Preservation Hall! I am getting married there in Oct this year. I love the feel of it, and u totally captured it in the pic!February 11, 2011 – 6:36 pm

Peggy - Awesome photo of Preservation Hall. Can’t place the two houses but I’ve seen them before. Very artistic shot. Gives them a certain mystique. The lighting on all of these is photographic perfection!January 15, 2011 – 1:48 pm

Marci - These really look great! The photos look like they could be a professional advertisement for the tourist industry for the French Quarter!! Food for thought. :>)January 12, 2011 – 4:27 pm

Evan - I’ve never seen my hometown look so good. You’ve done it again!January 12, 2011 – 11:44 am

LA Photographer in New Orleans: Morning Call, Beignets, & Crawfish Etouffee

Evan and I spent Christmas in New Orleans together for the first time in 2010.  I’ve talked before about how much I love his hometown.  The food, the music, the history, the sights—from the French Quarter to the swamps … and did I mention the food?  This was my longest trip to New Orleans yet, […]

May - Oh, I missed this while I was in New Orleans!January 6, 2011 – 3:32 pm

Evan - It’s too bad they don’t make sandwiches that good in California. At the same time, New Orleans may have the best food, but California has got the best photographer. 🙂January 6, 2011 – 3:24 pm

Marci - Ah…you are making me hungry again! As far as seafood goes, fortunately, you can find it for breakfast, lunch AND dinner here!!!
I am looking forward to seeing all of the photos you post from your special Christmas in New Orleans.January 6, 2011 – 6:51 am

Battle of the Beignets

Most people who go to New Orleans, or who have seen any movie set in New Orleans, know about this happy place. Yes, Café Du Monde in the French Quarter is a hallmark of New Orleans.  You can’t really go to New Orleans without visiting it, even though there are a number of other Café Du Mondes spread […]

Marci - I think you are going to turn into a beignet!! Great shots of them and I didn’t know that you can put your own powdered sugar on them at Morning Call. I’ll have to check that out. Thanks for sharing New Orleans on your blog and look forward to seeing more pictures soon….which means you’ll have to make another visit to here for new material. :>)June 1, 2010 – 7:51 am

Evan - You’re making me hungry. I also prefer Morning Call. The French Quarter location of Cafe du Monde has more character, but the beignets at Morning Call are superior. Plus, it’s much easier to get to Morning Call. Great photos, as always! For your next project, see if you can make a real beignet come out of the computer screen.May 31, 2010 – 1:21 pm

Judy - Beignets! YUM! I am fortunate to live in Mandeville, LA. Therefore, I can get beignets whenever I want(and I do). The plate of beignets make me want to grab it off the screen. The picture is so clear and bright. I could take the same photo and not have it look like yours. Love your website. All of your photos are so vivid and natural. The gecko is cute, but, I can’t stand lizards of any kind. The photo looked so real, it made my skin crawl. Keep up the great work!May 31, 2010 – 7:43 am

Erin - Beignets are great but the coffee is the best at Cafe du Monde! Cafe au lait is real New Orleans. Did you know that Morning Call used to be in the city and actually moved all those mirrors with them to Metairie?
Thanks for the nostalgic photos, Bamboo Shoots.May 30, 2010 – 7:19 pm
