Aretha Franklin second line tribute – Treme, New Orleans

We had a short visit to New Orleans this year, but we were able to grab a few videos here and there of the city including this tribute for Aretha Franklin in Treme. The people were singing loud with so much passion and love for Aretha. The entire day was filled with emotions and the city showed as much love as they could. People were dancing and laughing, I never saw anything so beautiful. I know New Orleans is where I need to be. I never felt this way about any other place.

Screen Shot 2018-08-26 at 2.48.52 AMI had to grab my handy G7X for this video. I needed something quick and easy to grab for photos on the go. I didn’t have time to carry around a bunch of lenses and for night time photography this camera is easy to put away and it fits in my jean pocket. I’ve had this camera for about 3 months and I think it’s just as good as any DSLR on the market with 24 mega pixels and 1080P video.

Check out the photos below, Enjoy

Published on Jul 16, 2017


On Frenchman street New Orleans we found the best brass band around. The Young Fellas Brass Band, They shut it down!!! These young guys played so well, it was amazing. They had people on every corner watching them, there must have been 100 people on the street. Look for them on facebook and youtube.
