During Friday's wanderings, I ended up at Jackson Square just behind the Saint Louis Cathedral on Orleans street. Some of the pictures came out so well that I decided to post about the area. These shots were taken about 8 a.m, and it was great to be outside in shorts at that hour... Nevermind that it was a Friday, and I wasn't at work. (i.e. I could have been out in a parka fighting off 50mph winds with furry animals falling from dark stormclouds, and I would have been good with it.)
Our late night last stop for Bignets and Chicory coffee; Cafe Du Monde. Yes, it's touristy. No, the service isn't all that great. Yes, the food is good and the tables are rarely cleaned, and I love it anyway.
The St. Louis Cathedral at night. In general the Church can be imposing sometimes, but when you get this image at 3 am after drinking for a while, my first fleeting thought was Christ with arms upraised asking "Why?" My next thought was I need to get to Mass! I guess the Priest there kind of planned that image!
