Since Halloween is upon us: The Ghost of Lake Pontchartrain
4

I took this photo a few years ago while visiting New Orleans to do photography during Mardi Gras. I spend quite a bit of time visiting New Orleans as I find it to be a great place to do photography as the city has so much character in its architecture and its people and the never ending festivals.

But on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain I found something a bit different. It's a grounded old tug boat that was once supposed to be a floating party bar. It was even used in a Super Bowl beer commercial a few years ago.

I enjoy doing long exposures near water and this particular afternoon it was a moody sunset as clouds were moving into New Orleans. I thought it a nice landscape shot. I do not know the actual name of the old boat. I just call it The Ghost.

Here's the Google Maps satellite shot of the old boat.
