Laissez les bons temps rouler
(Let the Good Times Roll)

The above photograph is a small piece of a fantastic window display from a boutique called Razzle Dazzle. Razzle Dazzle is located at 524 Royal Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. In my opinion Razzle Dazzle is a shopping destination when in New Orleans. Razzle Dazzle has very unique gifts and holiday items and ideas.

The photograph above and this blog are in celebration of Mardi Gras 2012. I photographed this image through a glass display window. To eliminate reflections and ghosting in the image I used a Circular Polarizer Filter. Even though a Polarizer Filter helps a great deal you also need to find the best angle to shoot your image. I also had to pump-up the ISO to 640 because the window was in fairly dim light. Now go out and shoot a window display.
