New Orleans - 5

I live about 2 hours from New Orleans which means I am able to make day trips there quite often to enjoy the local culture and/or to take pictures.  In the French Quarter one will find quaint little shops, musicians playing in the street, artists painting in some of the galleries and around Jackson Square together with lots of architecture.

Unfortunately as in any large city, there are the homeless and street people.  While there last year, I took pictures of a group of street kids with their dogs.  I left the faces off because I feel they fall into the abyss of lost, nameless kids of the street.

  1. This is full of movement and I love the reasons you left the faces off.
