Dixieland Statues, New Orleans

I’m still away from home at the moment, visiting Rich’s family in England, so I’m again keeping my travel photo challenge contribution concise. This week’s photo themes are Statues from Where’s My Backpack?, Street Life and Singing the Blues from the Daily Post and Texture from Cee’s Photography.

These took me back to an all-too-brief (and very cold) visit I made to New Orleans in the first week of 2010, where the long musical tradition adds a rich texture to the historic French Quarter around Bourbon Street.

    Laissez les bons temps rouler! Interesting. I was also in NOLO on the first week of January 2010. It was cold but not so much in the casinos.
