Corner of Balconies in French Quarter

      There is something new around every corner…In New Orleans every corner in the French Quarter is full of history.  Many have balconies. Many are still used as retail and living quarters.  No two are the same thus making each one f a kind in the world in which we live.  Most have been here for hundreds of years.  Before cars, electricity, and a lot of other things.  Love the uniqueness of each.

Papa Elliot on Toulouse and Royal Street

 

     Papa Elliott is a New Orleans Icon and famous street musician.  Born Elliott Small in 1944 he took to tap dancing and playing the harmonica at the age of 6.  This man is well worth hearing and meeting.  He holds court on Royal and Toulouse in the French Quarter.  He used to tap dance and once made $2000 in a week in the early 1950’s when he was 7-8 years old.  Just a nice and talented guy to talk to. He has been blind since 2005 but that has not stopped him from what he enjoys.  Playing for you and I.

Cafe Beignet on Royal Street

 

Royal Street is New Orleans is Unique in Many ways.  The small shops are unique and one of a kind.  You walk the street on weekends without cars.  The stores are small and that adds to the charm.  These are just a few that I was able to see this past weekend.  Antique and Art stores are the prime stores along with quaint places like Cafe Beignet.

Plaza d Arms, Jackson Square New Orleans

 

       Jackson Square was the center of colonial New Orleans when it was under French and Spanish Rule.  Today it is still the center of the French Quarter and a huge tourist attraction. Surrounded by unique shops and apartments.  The St. Louis Cathedral, Cabildo, and Presbytere surround the square and are full of history as well.  The largest real estate deal took place here in the Louisiana Purchase in the United States….

White Lady with Umbrella

    People love to come to New Orleans because we do beat to a different drummer and things are very different.  Lots of walking, talking, eating and drinking.  Music in the street and unique performers can be seen any weekend in the  French Quarter.  Walk Magazine Street to find dozens of unique and great places to eat.  It even works in the Summer Heat…

    These are my favorites from this weeks shots in the French Quarter.  Jazz Fest started this week so the City of New Orleans was getting ready.  With recent rains everything was ready to spring to life and it did on the light and breezy day.  I was using a wide angle lens 10×22 so you can really get a lot in with one shot…..Lets see what I can find next week in New Olreans…

    All are colorful, historic, vastly different styles and all are within a block of each other on Esplanade Avenue that splits the French Quarter of New Orleans with the Marginy.   Of course there were plenty more but this is just a few that caught my eye last Friday.   You can publish volumes of the neat homes and buildings that line this famous New Orleans Avenue.
