Canal Street Trolley

Here's a shot from the archives... It's the trolley on Canal Street in New Orleans.  I took this shot last October when we went to go see a New Orleans Saints football game.  Speaking of which, my wife and I have a bucket list that states we must see an NFL football game in every stadium throughout the country.  Pretty cool list, eh?  How many guys out there have a wife that would actually WANT to do that?!  I must say, I'm pretty lucky!  But, I digress... Anyway, while we were walking around New Orleans, we had to take Canal Street to get from our hotel to the French Quarter.  It has definitely changed over the years.  When I was there about 27 years ago, Canal Street was pretty much a pit.  But now after Katrina and the clean-up, it seems that it's really become a nice part of the city along with the French Quarter.  I was impressed when I saw it.  And, to see these trolleys going up and down the street was very nice as well.  I would've of really liked to have caught it at sunrise or sunset, but things don't always work that way.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy the shot and thanks for visiting!

  1. Really good job on this one. I like the perspective of the flags going all the way down the street. Perfect job around all the wires (masked in the sky?) since HDR tends to get a little wild around features like that.

  2. Thanks Mike! You're right about the sky... I had to mask it in from the middle bracket. I have a hard time with skies otherwise...

  3. Great picture as usual.

    My wife was watching the draft on ESPN last week. We haven't been to a NFL game and the New Orleans Saints would be a fun trip this season.
