It’s New Orleans: Out to Lunch

Hosted ByPeter Ricchiuti

OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. In his 9th year in the host seat, Ricchiuti's learned but uniquely NOLA informal perspective has established Out to Lunch as the voice of Crescent City business. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

Pics – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

You may have heard the expression, “The camera doesn’t lie.” Meaning, if you’re looking at a photo of something, well, that’s how it is. 

That may have been how it was – before Photoshop and filters on Instagram. Photographs these days have a place in our lives they never had before.

Among the millions of photos taken and posted every day for free, there are still photographers who make a living taking and selling photos.

And whether you buy or rent a house you can decorate it with photographs of iconic images of New Orleans and Louisiana by photographer Joshua Lee.

You probably have a decent camera on your phone. And some free image-editing software. So, you might reasonably ask yourself, why would I pay someone to take a photo of my house, or people at a second line? The reason you shouldn’t attempt this at home is in this Out to Lunch conversation.
