It is Tuesday in our part of the world once more. Time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is N and so I share photographs from one of my favourite Southern states: New Orleans
N is for New Orleans
I attended the National Association for Gifted Children Conference held in New Orleans sometime in 2011. I immediately fell in love with the city.
City of mysteries, masquerade, and music indeed.
I was already watching the TV series True Blood during this time, so I was amused at a few Southern allusions that I noticed thanks to the tv series. There is even a street here named Lafayette, also one of the characters in True Blood.
Great place for shopping too.
And of course New Orleans is famous for its music.
I also love the European vibe of the city as could be seen in this French market.
There is an ancient cobble-stoned, church-steepled, carriage-drawn feel to the city that appealed to my Catholic upbringing.
I also love the architecture.
This is Edgar Degas’ house, famous French artist who lived in New Orleans.
And this is me enjoying the cool November air. I think I have just tasted their famous jambalaya and gumbo when this picture was taken. I hope I can visit again.
