New Orleans at Night from Algiers Point

Last year, I took a photographic workshop from the New Orleans Academy of FIne Arts focusing on New Orleans at NIght.  This particular day, I got to ride the Algiers ferry for the first time crossing the Mississippi river from Downtown New Orleans to the historic neighborhood of Algiers Point.  The ferry ride is free, so it is a great option to consider when looking for inexpensive adventures while in the city.

Once an area filled with lakefront restaurants and homes, the Lakefront Marina offers great views of one of the longest bridges ever built; The Causeway, reaching 23.83 miles long over Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana.  After hurricane Katrina in 2006, the Lakefront Marina  area has not fully been redeveloped leaving behind beautiful signs of the New Orleans that was…

Herbie the Love Bug

The Abandoned Beetle

As a kid, my favorite movie was Herbie the Love Bug and although I did not speak English, I knew every word, and was able to recite the whole movie.  A friend of my parents had a Beetle that I named “Herbie”, and on a trip to Margarita Island Herbie lost his eyes… at the age of 4, I noticed that someone had stolen the head lights.  It is one of my most vivid anecdotes and candid memory of my childhood in Venezuela.

My fascination with this vehicle goes beyond the machine, it is an emotional connection.  I have never owned a Beetle, but there is always tomorrow.
