Starting 2015 off with a quote from fellow Leica photographer Ted Grant, if you have never had the pleasure to

meet him in person or chat with him over the phone, make sure to reserve a seat at the table when he has his 100th birthday party.

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!” – Ted Grant

Caroline and Brian held their ceremony and reception at the House of Blues in New Orleans Louisiana. The first look was photographed at the Monteleone Hotel on Royal St. The ceremony took place outside in the courtyard followed by a traditional New Orleans second line jazz parade leading up to the Parish Room. The reception was non-stop dancing by what seemed like everyone in the room! Just a wonderful wedding to photograph.

 A brief stop at Valley Forge National Park before heading to a photography session in NYC. This is the National Memorial Arch at Valley Forge. Trying out a 21mm 1.8 lens on the Leica and thought the Arch’s lines would be a great subject to test distortion.

Hundreds of people and possibly hundreds of tripods,early morning sunrise,traffic. Name three things I normally dislike. However this was my first time seeing the Cherry Blossoms in bloom in Washington DC around the tidal basin. Amazing how many people get out to see this! Instead of focusing on the blooms I found it way more interesting to focus on the people,the amateur and professional photographers, the rows of tripods, the daily joggers, the clearly annoyed cyclists, the business travelers in flight, the folks going to work attempting to avoid the tourists.

Little behind on a Monochrome post this week. I was photographing a convention in New Orleans at the Roosevelt Hotel and when I saw this image from across the room all I could think of was “Moon Over Bourbon St”. The lighting was just right.

“There’s a moon over Bourbon Street tonight
I see faces as they pass beneath the pale lamplight
I’ve no choice but to follow that call
The bright lights, the people, and the moon and all
I pray everyday to be strong
For I know what I do must be wrong
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street” – Sting
