NEW ORLEANS PORTRAIT

NEW ORLEANS  IS  A PLACE TO BE IN LOVE WITH.  IT IS RICH WITH HISTORY AND CULTURE THAT SEEPS INTO YOUR SOUL AND TAKES HOLD LIKE A LONGING THAT YOU CAN'T LET GO OF.  

YOU CAN GO A MILLION PLACES, BUT IT WILL NEVER BE NEW ORLEANS.  THERE IS NO PLACE TO COMPARE IT TO.  THIS PHOTO WAS ONE I TOOK IN THE QUARTER. I CAN REMEMBER AS CLEARLY AS THE MOMENT I SNAPPED THE SHUTTER.  I REMEMBER THE CONVERSATION THAT DREW MY ATTENTION, A FATHER BRAGGING ABOUT HIS DAUGHTERS SUCCESS IN PARIS FASHION.  SO DAPPER, SO UNIQUE, SO FRENCH QUARTER, THIS MAN WHO PERSONIFIED EVERYTHING EVERY WRITER WOULD EVER PUT TO PEN ABOUT A CITY ALL TO ITS OWN.
