"I always think of shade as being full of light. That is why I like to use the word shade rather than light and shadow. Shade seems to play over the thing, envelop it, better define it, while shadow seems to fall on the thing and stain the surface with darks." -John Sloan

La Gelatoria celebrates New Orleans and all the great hidden away spots throughout the French Quarter. It is a study of light from bright direct light to subtle variations in the shade. It was interesting to see how the people walking down the bright street had their heads down, trying to keep the sun out of their eyes, which those in the shade sat quietly enjoying a cup or gelato from the local shop. 

I particularly love the cast shadows from the stairs above, plus the bits of shine on the French Quarter's cast iron railings that pick up pale reflected color from their surroundings.
