New Orleans And My 35mm

Family.

That’s probably the only thing I love more than traveling and photography. So imagine how pleased I was when M surprised me with a trip to New Orleans on behalf of me graduating with my Masters of Fine Art.

It was my first time down south and New Orleans did not disappoint. And I definitely did not forget to bring my Pentax 35mm camera.

While New Orleans may have been a little trashier than I anticipated, I still felt like a Charlie Bucket entering Willy Wonka’s factory for the first time. The architecture, the attitude, the people and new friends we made, the plant life, THE FOOD, all of it was all so overwhelmingly wonderful.

Needless to say, M and I traveled as much as we could around the city. From walking all over the French Quarter, and through the Tremé. Up Esplanade Street to City Park and touring the New Orleans Museum of Art, and spending hours over in the Garden District looking at the beautiful homes and cemeteries. We even rented a car and visited the swamps on our last day which was ended up being one of my favorite moments of the trip.

I can talk forever about what we did (we rented a room from AirBnB from Lauren, a bad ass graphic designer with an amazing dog) but I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

Next post, I’ll show you the photos I took from my phone….which sounds much more lame than I anticipated but are cool nonetheless!
