New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival 2013

A few new shots from this year's Jazz Fest are in the "Travel" portfolio on the regular website.
I got a much improved shot of Germaine Bazzle, in my opinion the best jazz singer in the city; I also
swapped out one fiddler for another - Amanda Shaw has been archived and replaced with Theresa Andersson this year. This will probably go down as the coldest Jazz Fest on record. We're used to having daily highs in the upper 80s, with the standard of having at least one Fest day above 90. This year, the warmest day was in the low 70s, with quite a few rainy days, and closing day recorded a high of only 66.

In the "Landscape" portfolio, I've added a handful of more recent photos using the Canon 5D. I've found
myself accumulating a new series of home exteriors in the Bywater and Faubourg Marigny neighborhoods.
I'm very attracted to the colors, and though I'm just shooting sides of houses and the painted siding, I find
myself looking at them for longer than I usually give a photo, so that says something, but I'm not sure what yet.
