New Orleans

Sure, we actually went to New Orleans back in October and I am just now getting around to uploading them to Flickr. As a hobbyist photographer, New Orleans is a great place. You can hit the French Quarter take some shots, pick up a good meal, continue out to St. Louis Cemetery, and wind down the day with some great jazz music. So it’s a great place to enjoy yourself, and get some great photos.

It also appeals to me because there is plenty of history, and above all, the city just keeps rolling along through all of that history. So not only do you get great views of things unique to the area, but you can capture shots that speak to history, even legal history.

Yes, THAT Plessy for you legal types

Yeah that would be the same Plessy from Plessy v. Ferguson, at least according to our tour guide in the cemetery.

Anyway, if you get the chance, head down and bring the camera, but also leave the camera behind and hit Frenchmen Street for some good music, after you have a great meal from one of plenty of great restaurants, whether they are famous or little corner markets serving up Po’ Boys.
