Destinations

Mardi Gras Parades

If you have never experienced Mardi Gras, the parades, the parties and the fun that ensues, you must put it on your list of things to do. Your friends will be jealous, your family will be concerned and to some that is #MISSIONACCOMPLISHED

St. Patrick's Cemetary No. 2

New Orleans has a unique relationship with death. Although morbid to some - taking a tour of some of our most famous cemetaries, many of them as old as the city itself, is a great way to spend the afternoon and reflect. St. Patrick's pictured above is located at the of Canal Street.

New Orleans Street Art

Photographing Street Art, not graffiti, has been one of my favorite past-times since Banksy bestowed his work on our city. Now when I travel, I like to take time out to soak up the Street Art scene. Sadly New Orleans' scene is both rich and fleeting. Check out more information HERE
