Back in February I went to New Orleans just for a weekend. I strolled around this amazing city making photos mainly around the French Quarter and across the river in Algiers Point. Coincidently with my trip was the first week of Mardi Gras, ahhh!!!! Mardi Gras in New Orleans…
The beginning of 2 weeks of Carnival and celebrations and while the more family oriented and traditional parades are running along Canal Street, many of the tourist activities centers on the French Quarter and Bourbon Street. This is where at night, clubs are filled with bands, singers, and of course drinkers… It was also fun to watch the younger crowds while they “flash” exposing body parts in a effort to catch and collect beads being thrown from the balconies.
Here are some of the photos made in the famous Bourbon Street during the Mardi Gras craziness in the New Orleans French Quarter just a few weeks ago….
