Perhaps the St. Charles Streetcar, that runs through the Garden District, may be more famous. But, I really like the contrast of the red Canal Streetcar against the blue hour sky. I stayed at a hotel on Canal Street and the frequent streetcar sightings beckoned me to make a photograph. I waited for peak blue hour.
There are multiple streetcar lines in New Orleans, many appear to be of a classic vintage. They add a good deal a charm to a city already brimming with history and visual interest.
Unfortunately, I was only in New Orleans for several days. Too short really to experience it all and capture the multitude of images that I would like. But I made the best of my short stay, bringing my usual pair of Olympus cameras and shooting about 2,000 photos. For this image, I used the Olympus PEN-F with the Olympus 9-18mm wide-angle lens.
