Bluegrass in the Big Easy

Walk through the French Quarter in New Orleans and you are bound to find street performers. Jazz is the predominate stye, but don’t be surprised to her everything from country to zydeco. This young lady and her banjo entertained many with her bluegrass arrangements. What surprised me was the quality of the performers. All the musicians we heard were really great performers. Most do not mind photographers shooting away, as long as you tip them well when you are done. I don’t shoot a lot of people photos, but I do enjoy environmental portraits; images of people in their workplace or doing something that gives a hint of their personality.
