New Orleans, Jazz and Donkeys

The beautiful iron works of the apartments in New Orléans. Photo (C)susansheldonnolen

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to visit New Orléans again. I fell in love with the charm of the city, the numerous art galleries, and even though it was too short a trip, I managed a few photos to share.

I love turning corners and discovering little hide aways, here in an alleyway was a little shop.

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

    I’ve never been to New Orleans and would love to go. In October, there’s a conference there I’m interested in attending, but it’s a difficult time of year to get away, what with the kids and such. But those photos are great.

    • Hi Crubin, it was an amazing City. I liked it better my second time there. It wasn’t a frantic trip this go round. The food and the people in New Orleans are amazing. It felt like a home away from a home! I hope you do get a chance to go! 😉

  2. I like the third photo, Susan. I’m not sure what it is, but I feel as though I’m being drawn into there and need to have a good mooch around!

    I especially love the first pic…windows and stairs and doorways always leading somewhere I can only guess at…

  4. I was just in New Orleans last week, Susan. My cousin lives there.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
