The lost folders. Oh. The lost folders. I think I have 2 more posts to go. We'll see. I've been wrong before. But here are some more of that marvelous city...

New Orleans 2011: lost folders 6

WOW. More from the lost folders. TeeHee. These are all from our afternoon trolley ride. Shot on the move hanging out the trolley window, trying to not get my head knocked off by a tree. Or light pole. Extreme Trolley Photography.

New Orleans 2011: lost folders 5

OK. It seems that the lost folders are neverending. And I haven't even got to the photo that made me go looking for these! Exciting! These are, of course, images from my walks. But a couple of them are just the tip of the trolley tour.

New Orleans 2011: lost folders 4

The lost folders posts continues! Without further ado, I'm going to start with a collage I put together of a guy at the trolley stop. He was awesome. Towered above the crowd, and had a massive Afro to boot. Loved it.

New Orleans 2011: the lost folders 3

More from the lost folders. Yes. Exciting, isn't it? These little birds really enjoying the birdbath in Jackson Square. And I enjoyed watching them.

New Orleans 2011: the lost folders

I think I may of had a glich in my system. Or I blacked out. I don't know. At any rate, I thought all of my New Orlean's pictures were up. I was done. I was a bit sad. I thought I had taken many more. Then I thought...OH NO...did I delete them? So I started searching and found two more days (which is two more folders) of pictures. I was so happy! So I'm back to editing and sorting. I have a batch to put up. More to follow!

This was our go to morning stop. Lovely beignets and sweet dark coffee. Wonderful way to start the day.

Gulf Coast Renaissance Fair 2011: what to see

There are an abundance of things to see at the fair. It is very ornate if you look closely. Sometimes the mix of fair people and fair patrons makes it confusing. It would be fun to see a fair where everyone is in costume.

Gulf Coast Renaissance Fair 2011: the people

It was a beautiful day In February. Perfect for a fair. Throw in 4 of Nikki's guys and you have a rip roaring good time. We walked. We ate. We looked at people and swords. We were on a sword quest for one of her co-workers. Gave us purpose and a reason to dip into all the great tents.

This post features the people of the Renaissance Fair. They are so into their character, that I sometimes feel that is who they always are. The King and Queen? Come on. What else could they be? Lots of bellies at the fair. Some very pretty. Some should never see the light of day. This is one of the pretty ones...

New Orleans 2011: set 4

New Orleans would not be the same without the people. They are special. And people watching in that city is a full time activity. Between the locals and the tourists from every corner of the earth, there is always something interesting to see.

New Orleans 2011: Set 3

Beautiful light on a store front. The soft weathered pinks really caught my eye. Gentle. All the long vertical lines cut by the lines of sun was perfect.

New Orleans 2011: set 2

Perhaps if you asked me what my favorite picture from our stay in New Orleans is, it may surprise you when I tell you this one. It is not the typical New Orleans photo. But, I love it because I feel it embodies all that New Orleans is about...it is colorful. layered. old. new. rich. in depth. stark elegance against decay. weathered. textured. And just a little off.
