Rainy Days in New Orleans

Last weekend, I visited New Orleans for the first time. I'm sure New Orleans is lovely on bright, sunny days, but the cloudy overcast and occasional bouts of rain made my experience that much more enticing. I loved how mysterious the city felt with ominous clouds lurking overhead as I wandered through cemeteries ("cities of the dead"), beneath underpasses decorated with murals, and along streets with colorful beads hanging loosely from lace iron balconies. Beauty can be found in the most unsuspecting places, and this city is filled with many awe-inspiring gems.

Here are a few of the photos that I took during my stay in New Orleans. I hope you enjoy them.

I had to post this Zatarain's picture for good measure...
 
Have a great day!

  6. You're so different from me. If i visit a place for the first time and the weather is gloomy, I just curl up in my hotel bed and watcho mvoies and wait for the weather to get better before daring to step out! Unless someone's driving me around all day...
