One of my favorite photos has finally been added to my New Orleans collection! "The Alley" was photographed in July of 2005 on a trip to New Orleans with my two sons and my husband. We drove there from Texas to see New Orleans for the first time and what a wonderful time we had! It was 4th of July weekend and the streets were filled with people waiting for the fire works and shopping. Eating at Café Du Monde for Breakfast and strolling the street seemed to take us back into time. We went on the Cemetery tour and visited Marie Nuevo's grave and had a scary great time!
After the wonderful fireworks we were walking along the streets and came upon this dark alley! I took so many photos but did not realize until I got home how creepy this one was! I added a nice texture of grain to the image that produced an antique look to it. If you get this one in the Pearl photo paper it produces a strange glow to the lights and reflections of the wet cobblestone!
Look for it in the New Orleans section of my website! And don't worry - it's just a photograph! You'll have to visit New Orleans to see the real deal!
