A Ridiculous Number of French Quarter Photos: Part Deux

After wolfing down an extremely early breakfast, my camera and I had 30 minutes to walk through the French Quarter at dawn at a cafe au lait-fueled speed before the flight home.  Even at that early hour, the second I left the air-conditioned lobby of the Ritz-Carlton, I felt as if I’d stepped straight into a sauna.  Here is the second of a two-part post from the French Quarter under those conditions.  (Don’t miss the first part of the series, too!)

What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?


French Quarter Photo #1.  Bicycles parked outside of one of the many amazing buildings in the French Quarter.

 
French Quarter Photo #2.  Just as in France, there are shutters on nearly every window in the French Quarter.  And, as in France, they are functional shutters instead of just decoration.


French Quarter Photo #3.  I love that this shot blends the old world and the new, the French flag and the American flag, the historic buildings from the 1800s with the modern skyscrapers on the other side of Canal Street.


French Quarter Photo #4.  


French Quarter Photo #5.  Horse head hitching post in New Orleans.  


French Quarter Photo #6.  Rue Bourbon street sign.

    • What’s funny about that shot is that I almost didn’t include it because that brick building was really distracting and I wished I’d been a little more to the right when I snapped it. But I used my mediocre Photoshop skills to soften up the brick building and I liked it a little more.
