Hello Blue


The princess of the parade.

Little princess.

She was getting ready for her walk as a first liner in a second line. I asked if I could take her picture. She wasn’t sure so I asked her mom, who said sure. She also wanted a copy of the picture.

I made sure that she got that.

That’s the number one rule when you are working on the street. Do whatever you say you are going to do. That’s your street cred. Your only street cred. Being a working photographer is meaningless with everybody taking pictures on their phones.

There are two other rules.

“Be nice or leave,” was a sign created by folk artist Dr. Bob. Do what the sign says.

Stay focused. You might know a lot of people. Hang with them before the second line starts. When it does, do what you came to do.

That’s the street.

For now.

Stay safe. Enjoy every crawfish.
