NOLA, part 1

May 11, 2010

. . . . . . . . . .

hi there.

i am back in london after a short trip to new orleans, louisiana for my good friends’ wedding. we had such a fun time — i’ve been to NOLA before but the last time i visited was almost 7 years ago, i think. it’s a city that feels like no other to me. my friend anna grew up in new orleans so i’ve always had the best tour guide to find the good spots. of course, we stopped by cafe du monde for beignets and coffee (this place is always full of tourists for good reason – mmm).  lots of walking, laughing, catching up, eating and drinking. when i recover from this jet lag i’ll tell you more.

in the meantime, pre-orders are available for the Lines & Shapes book! click HERE to see preview images from the book, learn more about what will be included, and to pre-order your copy at a discount for a limited time. you don’t want to miss this one — maria has put together something really special.

more photos from NOLA soon. until then, enjoy the day.

    What a small world — I was in New Orleans this weekend, too! I couldn’t agree more that it’s a city unlike any other. These photos are wonderful. I can’t wait to see the rest.

    brian, you’ve got to put that shot of the wall inside cafe du monde up so i can fave the hell out of it.

    dude. I don’t think they could possibly fit any more powdered sugar on top of those.

    Oh, anything fried with a dumping of powdered sugar is so, so good.

    Can’t wait to see more NOLA shots. I’m obsessed with the city at the moment bcs of Treme! (Londoner here with no chance of going to New Orleans any time soon!)

    That’s so funny–I was in NOLA this past weekend too, and I walked around the French Quarter with my camera and for inspiration I actually thought, “What shots would Brian take?” Um, my shots look nothing like yours! Well, I have the beignet shot, but that’s it…Oh, and I got an old car shot, which I know you like :-)

    oh dear, I fear you have made me even more wanderlusty than before. why did you have to put up these pictures?!

  21. May 12, 2010 7:53 pm

    lovely images.
    I have always wanted to visit New Orleans

  22. May 19, 2010 2:10 pm

    Wow. You did a wonderful job of capturing one of my favorite cities. And Cafe Du Monde is such a delicious stop and wonderful people-watching spot. Thank you for reminding me how much I love New Orleans!
