..in shooting street, you may sometimes encounter someone who really doesn’t want to have his/her photo taken.. what do you do when you encounter someone like that? i personally don’t know what to do.. take this one, for instance.. she was just trying to take a snap of the guy’s dog but he went ballistic on her.. tsk3..

..on to the shot, this was taken by wifey on a picnic in the park, there was a mayoral candidate beside us campaigning while lounging under a tree, talking to locals and giving away stuff..

Streetcars in New Orleans have been an integral part of the city’s public transportation network since the first half of the 19th century. The longest of New Orleans’ streetcar lines, the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar, is the oldest continuously operating street railway system in the world, according to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. Today, the streetcars are operated by the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (RTA). (wiki)

..after dinner, en route to cafe du monde, we passed by the st. louis cathedral and since most of the people were celebrating Southern Decadence on bourbon street, there wasn’t that much people around.. so we stopped by and tried taking a shot of this at night.. i propped the cam at an angle on my slippers and bracketed the shot, thinking that the last and longest exposure was done, i took the camera and boom, i spoiled the shot.. or maybe not.. 😀

anne rice cemetery

..too bad this was closed when we went there, but it was still a good photo op.. 🙂

Lafayette No. One is known as the “Anne Rice Cemetery” to many, because the author has set a number of scenes from both her “Mayfair Witches” and “Vampire” novels there.  When the movie “Interview With The Vampire” was filmed, the production company constructed a plywood “tomb” in an empty corner of the cemetery because a normal tomb was obviously too small to shoot Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise sitting inside it! (from cities of the dead (dot) net)

..back from new orleans, it was a great place to explore and would certainly try going back again.. did a lot of touristy stuff and stuffed food like crazy.. this here was shot while strolling down bourbon street at night.. i have no idea how it looks like at daytime, but at night, it sure was really wild.. my wife’s gaydar blew up  that time because this labor day weekend was the time they celebrated Southern Decadence, so i guess if you’re a single straight male planning to go there on the labor day weekend, i highly suggest you refrain from doing so.. ;D

..here’s one shot i thought of posting for today but wasn’t really a clear capture, but was worth sharing anyways..

golden orb weaver

golden orb weaver

..still using a regular flash gun here, tilted in some contorted way just to illuminate the subject.. framing’s not topnotch because i was manual focusing while tiptoeing.. was a bit edgy too because this looked like a nasty spider and i wasn’t aware if it gave a nasty bite or not.. turns out they do.. 😀

The golden silk orb-weavers (genus Nephila) are a genus of spiders noted for the impressive webs they weave. Nephila consists of numerous individual species found around the world. They are also commonly called golden orb-weavers, giant wood spiders or banana spiders. In North America, the golden silk orb-weavers (see also Nephila clavipes) are sometimes referred to as writing spiders due to occasional zigzag patterns (stabilimenta) built into their webs, though these occur much more frequently in the webs of Argiope, such as the St Andrew’s Cross spider.
