New Orleans: Shots from the passenger's seat.


Eighth months after the New Orleans visit, I cannot believe how much shots I took while we drove around the city. And it seemed like we have driven around so much. The late November sky was mostly blue, bright and beautiful.

We return for an early morning drive to a quiet, still asleep French Quarter.

While the neighborhood seemed to be still asleep, someone was up and blowing bubbles on the streets.

  1. I can see why you took so many photos. It looks like a vibrant city full of things to see and do. A 24-hour tavern sounds kind of scary though.

  2. The French Quarters is defnitely very attractive. What's that Armstrong gate?

  3. That bubble blower probably hadn't been to bed!

    NOLA has to be the most photo-worthy city in the country -- I was just like you, so many pictures! Thanks for sharing.

  20. We spent a week there a long time ago, Maria, but I think you saw much more of it than we did. But that was in my past life when I didn't have a partner-in-crime for photography! I've love to go back and see it with new eyes.
