Summer in New Orleans

Summer in city.

This was probably the last second line of the season. The weather turns too hot and humid to walk after the first week in July. We resume during the second week of September.

The joyful dancing woman and I had been flirting photographically for the past couple of weeks prior to my making this series.

She knew that I was there to make pictures. I knew that the man in the pink shirt is her husband. She introduced us. At the time, they were a family of four. She’s in her mid-thirties. Doesn’t look it, but she is.

I haven’t seen in them in a while.

If we ever get to come back out, hopefully I’ll see them and their children.

It’s funny about doing this street work. You meet people, say hello to them every Sunday and when second line season ends you go your own way. After a two month break for the hottest time of summer, if you are lucky you see them again.

Stay Safe. Enjoy every smoked sausage.

    I love this series Mr. Ray. The joyful dancing woman is a stunning beauty, and her smile in the last shot says it all. Thank you for sharing. I hope you had a happy Father’s Day, even in the midst of challenging times.

        Very glad to hear you had a good day! Sometimes, “not being allowed to do anything” can be one of the greatest gifts 🙂
