What struck me recently me about New Orleans is that it’s a place of details. The little things that taken together add to the city’s ambiance. Sometimes these details add touch of class, sometimes a feeling of melancholy shabbiness. I’m sure I saw these before but, I didn’t see them. Sometimes you can see both in one view, like the Bourbon Street photo below that shows the colorful building fronts with the decay just peeking over the roof line. Sometimes they’re right under your feet.
