Abandoned Six Flags New Orleans

Abandoned Six Flags New Orleans

This is what happened to Six Flags New Orleans after Hurricane Catrina. I did a blog post on this a back in 2012 and to this day these are the most viewed photos on my blog to date.

Those photos are old and I do not really like them that much anymore. So I re-did all them and added the rest to this post. There are 116 in total and this place is really amazing. Turns out the movie they were filming was ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’

Here is the original post:

Upon my arrival I was greeted by security and a massive movie production crew, I panicked and wanted to turn around and find a different way to sneak in, but at that point I was committed. When I got to the gates the security guard looked at me, (it helps to have a pretty lady in the car) I smiled and waived as if we knew each other, at that point she waived me in. As I got to the parking lot, there was a massive tent, lots of movie trailers, and what seemed to be the grounds keeper staff in the North East part of the parking lot. Thats where I went to park. As I graved my gear and got out of the car, this guy approaches me, I thought for sure he would kick us out, instead he says, “make sure you go that way (points) and stay away from the film crew, you should be alright” He knew we didn’t belong there and exactly what we were doing, and was cool enough to let us know what whats going on and point us in the right direction. We ended up spending about 3 to 4 hours there and saw some really cool stuff. Not only an abandoned theme park, but also a massive movie production.

I have been wanting to come to this place since Hurricane Catrina, and I finally made it happen, what an amazing place to be. Six Flags New Orleans. This place is massive and a photographers paradise. Not only did I get tot see this place at its worse, but also at its best with the rest of Hollywood.

At the end of it all we where able to get in the car and drive away like nothing ever happened with a massive smile and cameras loaded with goods… Talk about a great day.

Below are some of the images I was able to capture, most of the park was all ours with the exception of a few spots full of people prepping for the film. Please let me know your thoughts and if anyone from that film ever stumbles upon this post, thank you for letting us walk around in awe of this place.

Here is a photo I took of the Louisiana Castle on my way home from Dallas a few months back, this family stood there in awe of this thing for like 10 minutes, I was trying to find a shot as I was right behind them but I couldnt get anyting interesting, until I walked about 15 feet back, then, there it was. The sky was clear that day so it was tough finding interesting photos, but I managed. Spread the love peeps…

One of the things I love about traveling besides the beautiful landscapes is meeting interesting people. New Orleans is a very unique place with lots of unique people. Every time I come here I am in awe of the people. Everyone is super cool and the vibe in the air just makes you happy. I shot this at a thrift store where we ended up buying a really cool bag and taking lots of pics of the entire store and its shoppers. This guy was kicking it behind the register reading the paper, upon payment I asked him if I could take his photo. He gladly said yes….

Next time you are in New Orleans pay attention to the people, you’ll know what I’m talking about… I use SILVER EFEX PRO to edit all my black and white photos… Spread the love peeps :)

I shot this man in New Orleans, he was sitting down playing a song, so I went to take a picture of him, it was terrible. I decided to linger around to see if anything interesting would happen, to my luck it did. This woman has walking along the water when the man jumped out of his chair, and started singing a love song to her. Thats when I took this photo. Happy Thursday peeps. Spread the love. Check out my new product reviews on the side bar, there is lots more coming.
