Comments Off on Skyline

I don’t know how many people in New Orleans know I used to do a lot of Skyline photography in New York. The intent behind most of my photography is to capture what the essence of a city is, In New York it was the city itself that defined my photography, in New Orleans its the people. Below is my TBT for the year.

Our Trip.

SmellCircus NYC FUMBO 8 from SmellCircus on Vimeo.

Dawn and I ran up to NYC for "the only film festival that doesn't suck" FUMBO.

I want to thank G, and Bo our wonderful friends for letting us crash at your house and use up all your hot water. Toly and Cobey for putting FUMBO on and making this a reality. All the other film makers party goers and degenerates. You all rock and make us smile.

We made all kinds of plans to film something for fumbo but we ran out of time and went to voodoofest instead. Deal with it.

So this will be slightly out of order, Ill post some voodoofest photos later but I figure since I cover voodoo fest and krewe of boo in the video its ok.
