I am still waiting on my first-weeks-of-Paris film to be developed, so I figured I would do a much needed post about my couple of days in New Orleans this past summer. It was the first leg of a 2-week road trip that I took with Anneliese in June. NOLA is an absolutely vibrant (and impossibly hot and humid) city, full of charm and dripping with character. We spent four days staying with Tatum, Anneliese's roommate from school, and she was awesome enough to take us around the city for our time there. The above photo is a side street we found while walking around the French Quarter. It led to a very quaint boutique and a tabby neighborhood cat (not photographed, because I am terrible at documenting things).
Here are some shots of the streets of the French Quarter, what we mainly explored during our stay. Every street and building was lusciously decorated with hanging beautiful plants and flowers, one of my favorite things about New Orleans.
I believe this was outside a garden that we wanted to check out. We never got to see the inside, because little did we know, spending more than 45 minutes out in the Louisiana heat takes its toll on northern girls. We went straight to the car after these shots were taken and sat for 30 minutes in the glory of air-conditioning.
