New Orleans LA, French Quarter Balcony — Photo Collection
The most distinctive and memorable architectural details in the French Quarter of New Orleans LA are the balconies facing the street on many two or three story buildings.
An illustrated article I produced some time back covers the history of wrought iron and cast iron balconies in the Quarter and another photo essay covers other iconic imagery in the French Quarter.
I’ve just returned from a week in the ‘Crescent City’ with a new collection of photos, a few of which you can view below. I’ve attempted to give you a broad overview of the many styles of French Quarter balconies I shot as well as several examples of the way both residential and commercial owners personalize and accessorize their elevated outdoor porches.
High humidity and warm to hot weather allow a broad variety of plants to thrive in NOLA. The weather also encourages people to sit outside and a shaded perch overlooking the nearly constant pedestrian parade is an ideal place to do so.
