“The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds – the cemeteries – and they’re a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep. Greek, Roman, sepulchers – palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay – ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who’ve died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn’t pass away so quickly here.”
“You could be dead for a long time.”
– Bob Dylan
Darlings, I am traveling around the great city of New Orleans this week but will be back to regular posting next week. In the meantime, here are a few photos of the Crescent City to tide you over until my return.

Great pics Eva! Hope you’re having a great time!
Thanks, darling. Come back and visit anytime. 🙂
Buy me something!
Oh, I think you’ll like what I got you – an authentic “Make Your Own Muffaletta” kit! Comes with a big ol’ jar of chunky olive salad…. 🙂
Acadia Einstein said to come say hi
Why, thank you Bearman. Glad you decided to come by for a visit! Tell Acadia I said his post is late. 🙂
Nifty pictures, Eva!
Thanks, Steve. 🙂 It was really a great trip.
Thanks, Mistylayne! The city is really fascinating, and has great natural light for photography.
I have never been (which is considered “odd” because I’m from the South and people just assume I’ve been) – have you ever been to Savannah? It’s gorgeous and the cemeteries are fascinating!
I haven’t, but I would love to. It’s always so hard to pick just one area to go visit – I always feel like I’m missing something! Good thing I’ve had a few hundred years to explore. 😉
Absolutely good thing. 😉
