New Orleans: CBD and French Quarter

12 posts in this topic

I brought my camera into the city last weekend for the French Quarter Fest, and came back with quite a few photos from around the Quarter and the CBD. Hope you enjoy!

The first photos were taken in the CBD, from there we'll go throughout the Quarter, back through the CBD, and eventually down to the riverfront.

And now for the photos(it may take awhile to load)...

Some of the major hotels between the lower portions of Canal and Poydras

Great pics! Reminds me of Savannah and Charleston in a way, but definitely a different vibe in NO.
