New Orleans, Summer 2016 - Part 2

The next day I spent a lot of time at City Park and the Sculpture Garden:


 


 
 
 
 


I also spent more time in the French Quarter, wandering around with my Rolleiflex and Rolleicord:

 




 

The Rolleiflex was a fun way to shoot. Several people commented on the camera.

More photos next time!

New Orleans, Summer 2016 - Part 1

Back at the beginning of June I had the opportunity to spend almost a whole week in New Orleans. It was a lot of fun - and also really hot! I have a lot of images from this week at a variety of locations.

The first day I toured the National WWII Museum. Here are some images from that museum:

 
 

It rained a bit after this and I wandered around the French Quarter for the rest of the afternoon and evening:

 
 

 




Well that's all for now, more later. For those interested, all of these were shot with my Nikon F2 and 15mm, 35mm, or 50mm lenses.

More Canoeing - Returning to the Alapaha and Dead Rivers

Last Thursday I went canoeing along the Alapaha. It was a tough slog up the river to the Dead River as the water was flowing fairly swiftly. Here are a few 4x5 photos I took:



 
I also brought along a couple of 35mm cameras to shoot for fun. First, I had an old point and shoot, the L35AF from Nikon. Sadly I killed it at the end of the day when it fell out of my bag into sand and water. But here's some of the photos:

 



   

Here is my friend Julie painting in "plein air:"


 And finally, I shot a roll with my Nikon F2 and a new lens I've been infatuated with - the 8mm f/2.8 circular fisheye. You will be seeing more from this lens soon! It is pretty neat:

 

 


Well that's it for today - more soon.
