New Orleans | Summer 2016

America has only three cities: New York, San Francisco, and New Orleans. Everywhere else is Cleveland.

Few things excite me more than getting the opportunity to travel. No schedules, interesting food, new people and places...I would take a trip a month if I could get away with it! This summer, I returned to one of my favorite cities in the world - New Orleans. My husband and I spent several days walking the streets and looking in windows, eating great food, sleeping in, and reading by the pool. And of course, along the way, I captured a few photos of my favorite sights in the Big Easy! Hope you enjoy sharing in my trip.

Everyone in this good city enjoys the full right to pursue his own inclinations in all reasonable and, unreasonable ways.

I can't quite pinpoint why I'm so drawn to this city, but its character and creativity are undeniable. I hope this little photo-journey captures the essence of New Orleans and inspires you to take a trip of your own.
