Had a free day after HITEC 2016 in the Big Easy and walked around to get some shots.
One of the main arteries through the cities, with the traditional street cars.
The Po-Boy, an original New Orleans sandwich. This is the alligator variant. Not too bad!
Plants and Balconies
New Orleans is famous for its many balconies - this is one of the nicer examples.
The famous Andrew Jackson statue in the XXX park.
Not too uncommon to see.
Taking a Break
The streets are full of artists of all kinds, some weird than others.
Typical NOLA street.
Witchcraft, Magic, Voodoo...
The city didn't feel so magical to me...
More Street Scenes
Flowers, balconies and potholes.
Welcome to Louisiana
The home of real men.
Tattoos and other things.
Never been a fan.
Striking a pose
"I'm ready for my picture" he said, and earned himself a dollar.
Where they belong
The french market, where you can buy all sorts of.. stuff.
If you feel like burning your taste buds, this is the place to go.
...is everywhere as always. These guys were ensuring a bachelor party and their marching band made it through the streets safely.
Many of them re-done after Katrina.
Still taking care of the bachelors...
4 Man Marching Band
Hired by the aforementioned bachelors and wandering through the streets with them.
Unlike many other creatures on the streets, these guys seem to live a good and fat live.
... is everywhere.
Summary of New Orleans
Music, Poetry, Art, Drama, Athletics. I could add a few more nouns...
Got to find a piece of home everywhere.
Not moved a muscle in minutes.
Taken from the 42nd floor of the Marriott.
Could make out quite a few. Not sure I'd want to join this one.
Another shot overlooking Canal street.
(Canal) Street Car
Back and forth and back and forth...
What's in here?
Not my world.
Fireballs & Hurricanes
Tasty, I'm sure.
It could be quite beautiful. If it wasn't for the people and the smell.
Take a Look Inside
Jazz Bar on Bourbon Street.
All walks of life.
I wonder if they took a peek inside.
Just Do It
Seems to be some people's motto in this street.
Goals of Marriage
What Gandalf Needs
Never liked Lord of the Rings.
Colours on Wheels
A great sight when they're riding through the streets.
Wasn't the famous Spotted Cat though.
Colours on Wheels
This time on the road.
Mine is Bigger than Yours
Love that deep sound.
In one of the bars on Frenchmen road.
Isn't always big for these guys.
Street Musicians on Frenchmen
Dozens of people gathered on this intersection to listen to these guys.
Watching from Above
The many balconies are certainly one of the best spots to watch the streets of New Orleans.
This guy knew how to play the guitar, no doubt.
Can't go without it.
Hidden market somewhere in the French Quarter.
Could not identify the scope of this shop.
Amazing voice - check her on Facebook! Spent 15min here.
Is not in your hands.
Less modern ones, this time.
Hot Sauce Bar
Taste at your own risk.
