New Orleans - Playing For Tips

Nola photostream


****Some of the numbers got off from me adding things in. so deal with it, lol.****

This is my 3rd trip I have taken to New Orleans and every time I go it gets better and better. There is just something about this town that words cannot describe, nor photographs. It just seems to have an essence of music and cuisine and exceptional Hurricanes (the drink). But it was a great trip and I hope y’all enjoy seeing all of the photos I had a great time taking.

Great stuff. I liked the 'no swimming' sign with the sun beating down especially. I like the way you put this picture in landscape, instead of portrait, when portrait would have been the obvious thing to do. Sometimes those kind of shots look so much better in landscape - you get to see so much more of the details all in one go.
