First and foremost in my memory from any trip is always the food. The hubby and I tried some new foods, including crawfish, bread pudding and hurricanes. But the best part is that in New Orleans, you can carry open alcoholic beverages on the sidewalk as long as the container is plastic. Sweet!
Next a few shots of some tourist places. Top left, the Place D'Armes Hotel. Top right, an old-fashioned painted billboard. Bottom left, the Saint Louis Cathedral across from Jackson Square. Bottom right, a french quarter streetcar. We also took a ghost tour, but it's quite hard to capture that in photos - trust me I tried.
Next up are a few shots of the butterfly exhibit at the Audubon Insectarium. When there are hundreds of butterflies flying among beautiful backdrops, it's not hard to get a good frame or two.
And to end the post, some eye candy I shot along the way. A palm tree at the Washington Armory, votive candles at the St Louis Cathedral, another butterfly the the insectarium and the view between two monuments at a cemetery.
