Oh, what can I say about these pictures? They speak for themselves.
I guess I can tell you not to give up. On anything. I tried to work in one neighborhood of the city and it wasn’t happening. The places that are normally lighted well for Christmas, weren’t. I don’t know why. I started to head back home, thinking to myself “maybe better luck tomorrow night.” I got a couple blocks from my house and I saw this place. I took these pictures. I’d like to take a bow and say that I did a good job. But, that ain’t so. The owners of this house did a great job. I just stumbled upon the scene and managed to get the exposures right.
The person taking a picture? I met a couple of women who traveled to New Orleans, one from Australia — originally from England — and her friend who still lives in England. They came this time of year because they read that New Orleans is a special place during Christmas Season. I’d have to agree with them on that one. I’ve been to a lot of places and there’s no place I’d rather be for the holidays. Besides, it’s home. Who doesn’t want to be home for Christmas?
One more thing. I’m getting very fascinated with the picture within a picture thing that’s going on with smartphones.
