The great city of New Orleans is often an absurd, even surreal place, bordered by the massive Mississippi River on one side (as it winds its lumbering way to the Gulf of Mexico to the south), and on the other by Lake Pontchartrain (brackish and about 40 miles wide). Who would have thought this is a good spot to live? But it is, and further it can be one of the most interesting, fun, and yes, even heartbreaking locations on earth, certainly in the United States. During my visit in March 2018, I had some time to wander through such disparate neighborhoods as the French Quarter, the Ninth and Lower Ninth Wards, the Bywater, the Garden District and Lower Garden District, and more. I purposefully only brought my 50mm 1.4 lens to give myself a challenge. Here are some general shots from that wandering.
