Fall in New Orleans | The Garden District

I've got 900 plus photos from my recent trip to the Southland and I'll be rolling out a select few as I get them edited. So be prepared to soak up the humidity and peeling paint, the sun speckled buildings, and live oaks. It's going to be great.

Then...once I've built up enough reserves to get my film developed, it'll be like deja vu around here. (Can I do a Kickstarter campaign for film developing? It's no potato salad but...)

First up is New Orleans. I've been to that below-sea level city many times but somehow never walked the Garden District. It's amazing and it doesn't smell like puke and alcohol. There are tree-lined streets, cute shops, great food, beautiful houses, interesting people. I could have spent a week just on Magazine Street.

Alright, let's go! The last one is my favorite!

One of the best things about cities.

I bet Nat King Cole got his hair done here.

It was tempting to eat one of District Donut's famed confections, but there was cheese to be had and beignets...and we only had one day there.

St. James Cheese Company's caramelized onion and Gruyere grilled cheese sandwich.

I forgot how quickly ice cream melts in the South. The Creole Creamery's browned butter pecan. Whoa sugar cone that was good. (Mom hand modeling)

Can't decide if the contrast is too severe...thoughts?

See? I told you it was good. Isn't this lady awesome? She clearly has modeled in that doorway before.

Georgia, you've got a terrific variety of photos here- very nice! and I don't think the black-white contrast is too severe. I like it. :)
