Crescent City Connection
Love this view of the Crescent City Connection; the twin truss bridges that cross the Mississippi River in New Orleans. Took this picture from a helicopter.
What a view! 2008.
I love this view: the whole of New Orleans in one image. Took this shot from a light aircraft approaching the city from the south in 2011. I love it because it captures, in a single image, my life for 5 years.
The Red Street cars lay derelict after the Hurricane Katrina flooding, but they did come eventually get pressed back into serve on the Canal Street line. This textured view emphasizes their colourful impact on the city, particularly during Jazz Fest, New Orleans, 2010.

Bourbon Street Bars
All the temptations on offer in the New Orleans French Quarter (well nearly all). Daiquiris and a Jazz Funeral - all drink related. 2008.
I believe that this was the Esplanade Avenue house where Benjamin Button's long lost father lived, with some shots filmed inside, New Orleans, 2011
Royal and Touro
I had wanted to get this shot for a while, and when I eventually made the effort, a Bud Lite trucked blocked the corner for the best part of an hour. So I waited, and waited and eventually got the shot. The Marigny, New Orleans, 2011
A performer pauses during a a set in the New Orleans French Quarter Fest, on the Moonwalk Riverfront. Barely anything more iconic in NOLA than the simple trumpet. 2008
One of the things I loved about the French Quarter Fest was the swing dancing near the Flea Market. I didn't dance myself, obviously, but it was very entertaining. 2010, New Orleans.
French Quarter Fest on Bourbon
One of the regular jazz bars moved outside onto Bourbon Street during the French Quarter Fest of 2010. It produced some great candid dance scenes such s this; very typical of New Orleans.

St. Louis Cathedral, looking out over Jackson Square in the New Orleans French Quarter. 2007
I love the small and innocuous details of the French Quarter, such as this odd looking gate. It's the long history, oozing out of every nook and cranny, that makes New Orleans. 2010.
Calle D Conde
Calle D Conde, or Conte Street was it is more commonly known, in the New Orleans French Quarter. This plaque pays homage to the Spanish roots of this very famous city. 2010
New Orleans French Quarter, 2010
A textured image of Bourbon Street, taken on a dull Spring afternoon in New Orleans, 2011.
Another facade in the New Orleans French Quarter that probably has a thousand tales to tell, all the way back to the colonial era. 2010
Hot Dogs on Jackson Square
Lucky hot dogs and the historic St Louis Cathedral, a real juxtaposition of images, but that's what New Orleans is all about. 2011
Wonder how long this broken facade hid the colonial history of the building underneath? That's the beauty of the French Quarter - so much mystery. New Orleans, 2010
French Quarter Backstreets
There's all sorts of interesting little details throughout the New Orleans French Quarter, including these quirky doorways. Texture added for effect., 2010

Drove my Chevy to the Levee
I had a Chevy, and I parked it on an actual levee; specifically the Mississippi River levee at Norco, near the Bonnet Carre Spillway in St Charles Parish, Louisiana. 2009
One Shell Square
This is One Shell Square, the tallest building in Louisiana. There is actually a building based on the same apparent design in Houston. 2009.

Grain Loader Sunset
A sight that I got so see on a regular basis - the Leake Avenue grain loader on the Mississippi River, New Orleans. A joy to step outside the office after work at times very lucky to have worked here. 2007
On a trio back to NOLA in 2012 we stayed in the Hilton and I took the opportunity to go across on the Algiers Ferry to get this long exposure of downtown New Orleans in the Mississippi River at night, 2012
One of the last images i took when living in the city, it was another one that I had wanted for a while, but had hesitated to travel to this levee in Algiers alone at night. Crescent City Bridge, New Orleans, 2011
Natchez Stern Wheeler
The Natchez stern wheeler - the only operational steam driven paddle wheeler in theU.S. today. Seen here passing Chalmette on the Mississippi River, New Orleans, 2011

One of the interesting sunset view that I was treated to on a nightly basis leaving my office on the levee at Leake Avenue. Mississippi River, New Orleans, 2011.
Mooring line on the Algiers Ferry, New Orleans, 2007.
This is the Warta, at anchor in the Port of New Orleans. Such is the traffic through this port that vessels often have to wait their turn to berth, hence the frequently observed line of vessels anchored on the Mississippi River. 2010
Aerial of New Orleans from London Canal outfall. The canals were a big contributor to the flooding during Hurricane Katrina, with some of the floodways failing under the pressure of inundation. 2011
So.....I got married on this boat, which made it such an irresistible photographic opportunity when we flew overhead in a helicopter. Creole Queen aerial, Mississippi River, 2011
Mississippi River Flooding
I like this image for several reasons; i used to drive along River Road and the spring flooding of the Mississippi and the potential threat it poses due to a levee breach is perfectly evident. High water of the spring of 2011, New Orleans.
One of the great things about St Charles Avenue is the Christmas lights on all of the big colonial homes; some go to great effort to maintain this fantastic sight. New Orleans, 2011
Streetcar at Bordeaux
Streetcars are an important part of the culture of New Orleans, and I loved to take these long view (perhaps with a telephoto) on St Charles Avenue. This was rolling past Bordeaux, near Napoleon, where I used to live. 2011
This is a great place to photograph the St Charles Avenue streetcars; the long straight alongside Washington Avenue makes for some great telephoto opportunities. Garden District, New Orleans, 2011
