Always tweaking something!

The Nawlins Chronicles #2

Day 2305

I’m not going to re-hash every stinkin’ day we were in New Orleans. That would be boring for you and would just make me sad and want to go back. Again. Instead, I have a few pictures that illustrate what I’m taking with me for this trip.

Music. On the street. Everywhere.

Street Jazz:

More Jazzin’:

She’s hooked for life:

She was just sitting there, captivated, watching that band play. Too cute. I better get granddaughters!

We saw this guy last time we were in town. He does a pose with his little dog, then swoops down on an unsuspecting tourist, scares the crap out of them and incorporates them into his pose. These are a few shots I got of him with this young lad. Crowd response to this guy is great.

You don’t become a one man band without using your head, an old bass, some piano parts, duct tape, screws & glue:

Neat & creepy all rolled into one:

Quite possibly the most taken photograph in New Orleans. But how can you NOT do it?

Jackson Square & St. Louis Cathedral

Of course, no one can resist taking a shot of a stature of a rearing horse either:

Gen. Jackson

After the Saints game Thanksgiving Day, they fired up the fountain at Pat O’Brien’s. It’s really quite captivating. Wish I could figure out how to get my SLR to do video.

Hot Water

And finally, my wishes for all of you this holiday season:
