Last weekend, Randy and I traveled to New Orleans to say good-bye to a friend and former church member from our time living there who succumbed after several years of illness. It was so good to renew acquaintances and catch up with so many people. While there, we also took a couple of hours to walk around the French Quarter. I actually felt like a tourist this time and was able to see things with a fresher perspective and found I could better appreciate the architecture and the uniqueness that is New Orleans. I am finally having a chance to go through some of the images I took and tried out some special effects on some of the images to give them that old fashioned look. In case you've never been to New Orleans, this will help give you a glimpse of some of what there is to see. Most of these images were made in and around the French Quarter, but a few were made on Magazine Street and Uptown. And of course, on Saturday, it was gray and overcast so I don't have a beautiful sky behind St. Louis Cathedral.
