To me there is no other place like New Orleans.As a “people”photographer” It is my heaven made to order!
I love photographing the many street musicians.If I get a chance to hang around and talk to them I try to get some contact info so I can send them the photos.
One of my favorites, I met him on a chilly December early evening near the river.
The Gentleman below I happen to run into twice,the second time I was with my couple who just got married and he played music for them and invited us into his home,it was magical!
GRANDPA ELLIOT one of the most well known street musicians.I have seen him many times on documentaries about New Orleans. I just had to stop and talk to him, I mentioned that I also play the harmonica, he actually gave me his phone number and asked me to call him sometime!
