New Orleans is only about an hour south of where I live. I’ve only been there twice, and yesterday was the second time.
I didn’t know where else to go, so me, my girlfriend and her siblings spent our evening in the French Quarter. Honestly, I don’t think there’s anywhere else I would have wanted to go.
The French Quarter is beautiful. It’s everything I love about city life. It’s nice to escape the big “box stores” and strip malls that surround our residence in Baton Rouge and see some true Southern culture.
I took well over 200 photos. The ones I liked best are below. (I used my Canon Rebel, but I ended up playing around with the pictures quite a bit on Snapseed, VSCOcam and Hipstamatic. Hipstamatic is a bit gimmicky, but occasionally it works, and very well too.)
