My Vacation to NoLa

I want to start by saying that 3 days in New Orleans is NOT enough to do and see all the things I wanted.. aww shucks guess I'll have to go back again sometime.. Also apparently $250 isn't enough either haha! I had so much fun being back in the south, breathing the humid air, being around loud and crazy people who do and say and wear what they want. 

First day we got there we just decided to drink and not do anything serious right away, so gone we were down to Royal and Bourbon street where I woke up to a large amount of photos I don't remember taking... thank you Bourbon street::

I barely remember taking this, but the vibe reminds me of a beachy version of Austin, Texas.

Love her look, and that she's in front of all these naked women and probably doesn't realize it.

I like how when a person agrees to, or wants to have their photo taken, they each do something different and that action in itself embodies their personality. You can capture a person in a photo.

so the next day was more of a shopping and looking day. We biked to the Garden District, had brunch and shopped for antiques. The architecture is amazing. The Sunday was so lazy. 

Ugh the history here, i Can't.

after the Garden District, we made our way to the rooptop bar at the Troubadour to catch the sunset in the city turn to night. We get to the 17th floor and a neon sign greets us with a message that reinforces the feeling of the weekend we've had:

These boys were cool. Joe and Mike worked at the Troubadour. We talked about DJ-ing, Billie Holiday, and Kanye West. I love photographing the people I talk to.

we realize on the way home around 4am we've lost not only the PHONE, the CARD, and my LENS CAP - but worst of all, we lost the BLUNT. Welcome to NoLa.

Last day. Woke up too late. Didn't do too much. But i did get a tattoo...

As we walk down Frenchman St. in the day time, there seems to be the realization of two different cities in one: the city by day and the city by night.

The cleaning crew in this city is ON IT.

To close out, I have a love in my heart for New Orleans that I'm not surprised about. I knew I would love it but not this much... hmm somethign to think about.. 

Pounded so many of these this weekend. The last 4 of the weekend we drank in the cab, to be exact. Abita all the way!
