Fleur de Paris in NOLA

I did have something else to post today but given that New Orleans was thrust into the spotlight this Superbowl weekend I thought this was perhaps more apropos. Some how though I don’t think that Royale St. was as quiet…

    Nice capture, Edith. Interesting architecture and colors but it is the man walking into the scene that really makes this one.

  6. I like how everyone has a balcony, and also some cool storefronts. The US needs to take note of this!

  7. This image captures the “essence of NOLA” perfectly. Love the architecture, but agree with previous comments; the man walking really makes this image pop.

  19. Beautiful image, Edith. I love the fact that the the scene isn’t cluttered with people and the processing looks wonderful. Each one of these images from that great city makes me want to get back there soon.

    Good stuff!

    Each time I have visited New Orleans, it has been when following the VT Hokies to a bowl game. Given that, the streets are always full of crazed fans (yep, I’m one too). I hope to get back for the purposes of photography (and food and music, of course). Love the photo!!!

  23. Great shot, Edith, truly wonderful!! I love the old, character-filled architecture! Great details, only to be found in New Orleans! You’ve done a wonderful job with your composition on this one, really guiding the viewer right down this terrific street. So many little gems to take in!! I just love it!
