Joining the fun

I volunteered to do some photo shooting for the Cutting Edge Music Business Conference going on in New Orleans this weekend. We were out shooting publicity photos for the artist with the guitar, Robert J. who hails from Madison, Wisconsin -- the other end of the Mississippi River.

Hey, I'm getting to who the other guy is. Just wait.

Robert J has one of those voices that can fill a room, or in this case any street scene. He was just playing some bluesy New Orleans style tunes as we wandered down to Jackson Square, stopping along the way for shots. People would stop and listening in.

We got to this shot at the corner of St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter when the fellow in white just wandered on up into the shoot. Seemed to me like good "flavor" for a New Orleans photo, so I kept shooting. Never did get his name.

I suppose the New Orlean is the most musican place in the US ;)))

"Louis" can almost hear the music all the way to SF Bay! ;-)

Does he sound like Bob Dylan? He looks a bit like him!

Great work on your blog today and a very appropriate picture.

I've just racked up two years at South Shields Daily Photo and I hope to be passing here in two years time to compliment you again! Keep up the good work!
Thanks to everyone who has passed by and left a comment or some encouragement, it makes it all worthwhile.
