The French Quarter, New Orleans - in watercolor

All shot with the A7RII / 24-70GM. Processed in Lightroom and edited in Photoshop for watercolor. (view originals for better quality)

This first photo is a common sight in the French Quarter. It's a horse and carriage tour. In the background you can see the Armstrong Arch - it's the entrance to Louis Armstrong Park. Of course Louis Armstrong is an iconic figure in New Orleans history.

This next photo is a group of street musicians playing New Orleans style jazz. They set-up their chairs in the street where the road is either blocked off or cars have to go around them. The table in front is for selling their CD's and vinyl records - and of course the tip bucket too. The name of this band is Tuba Skinny. They were smokin-hot talented musicians who each took turns taking solos.

This next photo shows the old and new New Orleans. You see the old French Quarter in the foreground and at the end of the street you can see modern buildings in the new downtown metro area.

First and foremost, it's about capturing the moment regardless of how the pixels look at 100%
