    A Post Card Photo

    This one wasn't taken with a Leica camera, but with a competitor of its day. I took it with a Canon P, a rangefinder meant to compete with Leica. It's a nice camera that uses LTM lenses. I used Kodak Portra 160VC film for this photo. The scene and the coloring has that classic postcard look I remember from when I was a boy.

    This is Jackson Square, in the French Quarter of New Orleans. That's a statue of Andrew Jackson. The church in the background is St. Louis Cathedral.

    I've always wanted to go down to New Orleans - and you've all certainly rekindled my desire!

    I hope that it is OK to post images that were taken with cameras other than Leica.
    Else, I will delete these posted images.

    Here, I set the TLR lens to aperture 16 so that with the slow film there would be some blur for the moving man with his cart, while the scene overall stayed sharp.

    Rolleiflex 2.8D (Planar) with AGFA 25 120 film.

    I once had an article on night photography in New Orleans published in Shutterbug.

    This is Grandpa Elliott. He is one of many great street musicians in NO. I love chatting with them.
    If you haven't heard him, go to Peace for Change on youtube.

    I had the slow Fujichrome 50 still in my camera, so I placed the camera (as a tripod) on one of these street posts to block cars from entering Bourbon Street after 8pm.

    Sorry for this outburst, but I have so many images that I have from the French Quarter over the past many years. Many were taken with an Nikon F2 with Nikkor 105/2.5 and also with a Canon F1N with 50/1.2.

    Several of these images are from a one-year project during which I drove many times to NO for this photo project.
