We made it back from New Orleans!
We had a wonderful time, however, there’s no place like home.
Boy…was it a scorcher in NOLA! When we arrived home, and as soon I stepped off the plane
it felt at least 10 degrees cooler. I think it was all of the humidity that made such a difference.
We didn’t photograph Jackson Square or any of the landmarks
this time. We mainly walked on the streets and took street scenery.
We took a swamp tour…this guy was a little too brave for me.
I did learn something…. Alligators love marshmallows!
We listened to some wonderful street jazz!
I felt sorry for this little dog…it was so hot. I’m sure these little booties
protected his feet.
This art studio featured paintings of dogs….and then there was this cat that was always in the window watching
the people on the street.
We took the street car to the garden district.
We walked through the graveyard!
We enjoy getting off on 6th street and walking around and looking at all of the lovely homes.
I have a fascination with doors and I thought this simple art was interesting
and different. I love the natural wood.
We tried to pick our favorite, but there were so many lovelies ….
This little shot gun would be perfect or……
back in the quarter there’s certainly some lovely townhouses with balconies.
I’ve never had my Palm read…
loved how he had his bike decorated
A little street photography in front of Brennan’s…..
This reminds me of the 40’s and 50’s.
Some of our friends. They had a ball riding these little carts.
NOLA knows how to make PO-Boy’s!
There was lovely art everywhere…and speaking of art, we are going on Lake Cumberland’s breast cancer cruise
and I am adding one of my paintings to the auction. I’m a little anxious…what if no one bids on it?
I hope so because all proceeds goes to breast cancer research and we certainly need to find a cure!
Wish me luck!
When you visit NOLA, and if you love to cook, this place is great!
Well folks…I could post many more photo’s but you must be bored by now,
New Orleans is definitely back and thriving after Katrina.
Take care and have a lovely weekend!
See you soon!
