Gallier House, New Orleans

The Gallier House provides a glimpse into the life of wealthy, white Creoles in New Orleans in the mid 19th century. The Creoles, descendants of French and Spanish colonists, sought to preserve their culture at a time when Anglo influence was on the rise.

Crescent Park, New Orleans

Crescent Park runs along the mighty Mississippi River in New Orleans. You enter the park by walking over a tall footbridge. The path through the park is lined with beautiful wildflowers, and it affords a great view of the city and of the boats and barges traveling along the river. (River photos to be shared in a separate post.) I took this batch of photos during a visit in October, 2015.

Mardi Gras 2014

In March of 2014 my daughter and I had the pleasure of spending Mardi Gras in New Orleans. We are lucky to have a dear friend who lives there and has an insider's knowledge of this richly diverse city. Here are some of my favorite photos from that visit. If you have a chance to visit Mardi Gras once this pandemic has resolved, I recommend it!
