New Orleans Jazz Fest 2008

Here are some pics I took of the festival and the surrounding neighborhood in early May. Enjoy.

Nice pics....it's so funny, because not only was I at the Neville Brothers (along with 60,000 others), but, the really interesting thing is I parked on Onzaga...you probably walked right by my car, and possibly me. Great festival...year in and year out. 2008 was just as good as they all have been.

I wish every city had the mystique of New Orleans. I mean... what the hell happened to Tampa or Mobile or Galveston? Is it the people that make a city so lifeless? I guess New Orleans has the right ingredients.
