I was able to take a trip down south for a few days to New Orleans. Took a ton of shots all over the French Quarter and the Garden District, including numerous buildings and two cemeteries. Almost every day I would stop off in Jackson Square as it was always on my way to and from my hotel. Originally named Place d’Armes, it was renamed for Andrew Jackson – hero of the Battle of New Orleans. It is surrounded by numerous artists and musicians, several tours start out here, and overlooks the Mississippi River.
At the farside from the river is the St. Louis Cathedral, which is pressed between two identical buildings that house two separate museums: The Cabildo and The Presbytere (aka the Louisiana State Museum).
The Square is shut at night, but that doesn’t stop people congregating around it at night, be it for tours or revelry.
Next up: I will continue to post some entries on my trip, but to break it up and not continuously do series as the past few entries have been, I am breaking it up with some Autumnal shots of NYC next week.
