New Orleans at Night from Algiers Point

Last year, I took a photographic workshop from the New Orleans Academy of FIne Arts focusing on New Orleans at NIght.  This particular day, I got to ride the Algiers ferry for the first time crossing the Mississippi river from Downtown New Orleans to the historic neighborhood of Algiers Point.  The ferry ride is free, so it is a great option to consider when looking for inexpensive adventures while in the city.

Cafe du Monde

Beignets and Cafe au Lait from Cafe du Monde in New Orleans.

This week, I am on an all fruit and veggie diet (first time ever) and all I can think of is beignets.  I took this picture 2 weeks ago after a long walk though the French Quarter, so I deserved to enjoy these warm, fluffy, pillow-shapped donut topped with powder sugar…  I cannot wait to go back to Cafe du Monde and devour an order or two!

The French Quarter hides some amazing courtyards, it is just a matter of being noisy enough to peek in or ask yourself in and discover the beauty behind this historic neighborhood in New Orleans, LA.

This particular photo was shoot through the mail slot on the front gate.

Always a good excuse to throw a parade and street party in New Orleans.  Today’s parade “throw” is cabbage and anything green, of course.

Happy St. Patty’s Day!!!
