Another face of New Orleans, this woman gets to her location, throws down her purse, kicks off her shoes and begins to play her unique instrument. Hidden inside her purse is her pint of booze which she partakes in between songs. Looking at her, one can tell she lives a hard life, but while she sings and plays, she hasn't a care in the world. When I took this photo of her she was singing Shanghi Lil.
