I grew up about 25 miles from New Orleans, but now that I’m an adult and have been away from the city for the past 11 years I have a much greater appreciation for the culture that The Big Easy offers. Last month I decided to take a trip to Louisiana with a good friend of mine who had never been there to share some of what makes the area so special and help revive my love for the south. While touring around the French Quarter and the Swamps I casually snapped a handful of photos to put together this gallery. Laissez le bon temps rouler!
