It had been several hours of running around the French Quarter, creating images with a fun group of guys. It was almost morning and the predawn light was pushing the dark away for the day. Though the streets were still empty, the morning rush hour was soon to start. This quiet moment at the St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square was one of my last shots before sitting down to beignets and coffee at Cafe Du Monde, which is open 24 hours a day.
That weekend with friends David Morefield, Jeremy Mancuso and Andy Crawford was about as much fun I have had taking photos since my trip to Europe. It was a great group of guys and a fun place to shoot. Andy wrote a great article on our trip if you want a feel for how a photo weekend photo trip might go. View my New Orleans gallery for other examples of where we went.
