The City of New Orleans ranks right up there near the top of a list of cities I'd like to revisit and spend more time there. I think it would be a great experience to go there during Mardi Gras. Even in August the French Quarter provides a party atmosphere with it's jazz bands, street performers and friendly natives. It's like being in a different city from the "downtown" of New Orleans. the rush and hustle of the big city are hidden here. The pace is casual and no one seems to be in a hurry. I highly recommend a visit to New Orleans, if you haven't been there. Enjoy these photographs of the City of New Orleans and the French Quarter.

The Super Dome is so big I couldn't get it all in the viewfinder.
This is a merged image similar to the panoramas on some of my other pages.

I watched him for 5 minutes and he didn't move a muscle. I
couldn't even see him breathing

She may have been on lunch or the guys talking to her wouldn't
put any money in her bucket.

Some balconies are plain

And some are very ornate

But the beads are there year round

The pace is slow and easy

heheheheh So will I
