New Orleans :: iPhone Photos

26 Feb

Kolbs New Orleans

It’s an iPhone only post to wrap up my New Orleans photos. I usually allow myself a little more fun with filters on the phone pics. I also didn’t feel much like pulling the big camera out during the torrential downpour we experienced the first night. For the full experience, be sure to see the cemetery, evil eye and French Quarter posts too.

New Orleans :: One More from the Cemetery

29 Jan

St Louis Cemetery Number One, New Orleans

Somehow I forgot to include this photo in yesterday’s cemetery post. It’s actually one of my favorites partly because of the evil eye which reminded me of my 2010 trip to Turkey. To this day I have one in my home, my office, and I try to have one clipped to my bag while traveling. I need all the help I can get!

New Orleans :: Saint Louis Cemetery One

Statue, St Louis 1, New Orleans

I had the good fortune to travel to New Orleans recently for a work conference. Having never visited previously I flew in a little early and did my best to see some of its sights. Of course there just wasn’t enough time. And of course that means I will have to return. They were also having their “one week of winter,” so photos and light proved a bit challenging with the rain, wind and fog. But in the case of the cemetery, the fog definitely lent to the atmosphere. We chose to visit Saint Louis Cemetery Number One due to its proximity, history and supposed safeness. (According to Frommer’s, unguided cemetery visits are not recommended – for the record, we felt perfectly safe.)

I recommend a visit to New Orleans and thoroughly enjoyed its food, drinks, history, people, sights, talents, quirks, originality and spirit. I look forward to plotting my return!
