New Orleans, Louisiana, French Quarter — Photo Collection

Many iconic images come to mind when I think of the French Quarter in New Orleans.
I was able to capture a few of them on my most recent visit.

Having made several earlier visits to “The Big Easy” I’ve previously published a series of illustrated articles about the French Quarter with sub-topics such as Jackson Square, Bourbon Street, etc. I’ve also published a photo essay on French Quarter Balconies shot on this most recent visit.
In this essay I’ve assembled several photos that illustrate some of the interesting or unique characteristics of the most visited neighborhood in New Orleans.
While I couldn’t resist including another balcony image or two you’ll also find images of colorful single story buildings, iconic structures such as St. Louis Cathedral — exterior and interior, famous eating places and more.
Hover your cursor over the pictures for individual captions.
