French Quarter Corners 2Corners in French Quarter Royal and Ursuline StreetsCorners in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Gallery

     French Quarter Corners make some grat photos.  The wrap around gallery is common in this area of town.  Notice  the curve in the galleries.  The placement of the doors are also unique on these old buildings.  They all had to be some sort of retail space in the day.  These are just a sample of the color and the variety in the area…

French Quarter Spring Colors 2013

New Orleans Porches in Spring, New Orleans Homes

    Two of my favorite subjects when photographing homes are the proches and balconies.  Then you add in Spring and it really brightens the neighborhood.  Front the simple cottages and shot guns to the mansions along St. Charles Ave. The Tropical weather allows us to have these wonderful colors that other places do not get to have.

      The New Orleans Warehouse District or Central Business District was the main street of New Orleans until the 1970’s when people started moving to the suburbs.  Most of these buildings were built in the 1900-1910 range.  They all have some great windows and details that you have to look up to see. 

      Most of the people livning downtown today are living in condos that have been converted inot condos from a wide ranging styles and types of buildings.  As late as the 1960’s this is where you went for a doctor visit, to the dentist, to the bank, to buy clothes, and visit the department stores that had the variety of goods all in one store…..  You were expected to dress up when you went shopping, some changes that we have seen…
