Hotel on Esplanade in NOLA

 

There is so much to see, do, hear and smell in the New Orleans French Quarter.  Took these in an hours time walking around. The Melrose Plantation is a Bed and Breakfast on Esplanade across the street from the French Quarter.

The Masks are colorful and are for sale at the French Market.  Just one of the hundreds of items for sale.  The “Trashy Diva Window” is on Royal Street and always has some interesting dresses for sale.

The Rouses Supermarket on Royal is home to many a band on weekends. Always a good place to get a sandwich, a drink, snack or whatever. The music is fun. Just 2 blocks to Jackson Square.

Cabildo from Corner, French Quarter Nights

      About Sunset in the afternoon you get a lot of shadows and streams of light that give you a variety of colors and shades.  These are some of the photos that I took this week in the French Quarter in the late afternoon.  You end up getting a lot of detail as you get little direct sun and deep shadows as you would during the day.

Color on Historic Esplanade Ave. Town Home, Late French Quarter afternoon….

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

     Esplanade Ave Starts at the River and ends up at City Park.  This is at 1037 Esplanade Ave on the outskirts of the New Orleans French Quarter.  Just a very colorful building in the late afternoon sun.   The Double Creole Town home dates back to 1833-1836 shows the Spanish Colonial influence of that time.  Its now known as the Petronille Monsignac house.  I doubt if it were ever this colorful in the early years.

French Quarter balconies are a treasure in New Orleans…

Monday, May 9th, 2011

     You never need to search for things to photograph in the French Quarter.  You can always find historic building with balconies.  Add Hanging basket ferns, wrought iron designs, french doors, flying flags, unique shops on the first floor and you get a feel for the New Orleans French Quarter.  Go a mile in either direction upriver and downriver and you get an entire different picture of New Orleans.

Andrew Jackson in the fog in New Orleans

      On a recent Saturday the fog had its way with the New Orleans French Quarter.  Being right on the Mississippi River Jackson Square was covered and I was there to enjoy the nice change of scenery.  It could have been foggy that morning in 1814 when Jackson defeated the Bristish in the Battle of New Orleans.  Johnny Horton however never mentioned it.
