Nola photostream


****Some of the numbers got off from me adding things in. so deal with it, lol.****

This is my 3rd trip I have taken to New Orleans and every time I go it gets better and better. There is just something about this town that words cannot describe, nor photographs. It just seems to have an essence of music and cuisine and exceptional Hurricanes (the drink). But it was a great trip and I hope y’all enjoy seeing all of the photos I had a great time taking.

Great! I love this photo

this one was from my last day there. i got up early and went to the cemetery before people really started coming out. probably the best photo i took while i was there. i had to climb up on a wall to get this one but it was totally worth it. i just love all of the different textures and things point out, plus the clouds were nice that morning.

I love it when people bother to caption the pictures, in the way you did. It makes the tour much more understandable.

Thanks for sharing!

Great thread! New Orleans definitely has interesting feel about it that makes it hard not to like, I don't know what it is about that city, but I am definitely attracted to it.

NOLA has this essence to it. Its hard to describe but you can feel it when you walk the streets there. I love it. Everytime I go I meet great people and have tons of fun. Plus it is one of the few southern cities that is truly walkable and has decent pubilc transport.

^^ That black & white photo above is also my favorite; its just great :)
thanks christos. that is probably the most popular photo I took while I was there. The editing was actually really simple. I just use the color saturation function in photoshop and turned all the colors except red all the way down.
