Homes on Bourbon Street in New Orleans….

July 20, 2014

Bourbon Street and Gov. Nicholls      Homes on Bourbon Street in New Orleans.  Yes, there is more than bars and night clubs on Bourbon Street.  You walk from a busy busy party and right down the block you enter a residential area that is always pretty quiet.  The homes are historic and some of the cutest in the French Quarter….

Hanging Angels in New Orleans on Royal Street



Ferns and Angels in FG 2014

A Most Interesting corner in the French Quarter on Royal Street.  Hanging Angels and some of the most well kept hanging ferns in the city.  Always worth a couple of photos of the balconies, flags and angels that seem to be all over the balconies.

Pontalba at Jackson Square

Where are all the people in and around Jackson Square?  Most are asleep at 6 am in the morning.  This however is a great time to enjoy the sites in the Summer before it warms up and gets hot and then hotter.  Walk for a couple of hours then eat breakfast.  I know I am going again, maybe a little earlier next time.

Oak Alley Plantation, A Beautiful Place to Visit…Up The Mississippi River to Vacherie from New Orleans


Oak Ally Plantation 1

     The Oak Alley Plantation sits on the Mississippi River about an hours drive to Vacherie, Louisiana from New Orleans. The Greek Revival Plantation was constructed in 1837-1839.  What makes it famous is the 300 year old oak trees that lead from the front door to the Mississippi River about a quarter of a mile away.

    You will always remember the photos that you take at the Oak Alley Plantation Rain or Shine. You may even remember seeing the Plantation is several movies.

      Perhaps the most photographed plantation ever, Oak Alley has been the setting for such motion pictures as Interview with a VampirePrimary Colors, and the wedding of Bo and Hope from the daytime soap opera, Days of our Lives.

1107 S. Peters 413, Federal Fibre Mills Condos, Exposed Beam s and Brick     The Warehouse Distirct has become a favorite of second homers.  The Federal Fibre Mills is one of my favorite buildings.  This is the inside of a condo that I just listed.  Its known for its exposed beams, exposed brick, large windows, wood ceilings, high ceiling and attention to historic details. This one is being sold furnished for $320,413. Over time many of the owners have upgraded their units to look much like this one.

This Week at the Botantical Gardens in City Park, A New Orleans Favorite…

June 9, 2014

New Orleans Botanical Gardens     Being a Friend of City Park its free to come and go.  This allows you to take family and friend.  You can go during the seasons and always see something different.  Lots of things blooming this week as we start Summer.  Did you know City Park is owned by the State of Louisiana.  They have to create their own funds and do so without government interference.  Maybe that is why things are always in good shape.  You have to please to collect….What a Novel Idea…

Homes on Sixth Street in Garden District

     One of a kind block in New Orleans.  The homes in this part of the block all have oversized brackets and larger porches.  They are all very colorful and look like copies  of each other.  They are a rare find in New Orleans.  Lets just call this the block of the brackets….

Rosewood Home in Uptown New Orleans      Love this time of year to photograph historic cottages in New Orleans.  It”s still not hot and all the plants and trees are fresh and bright green.  Got to have these lovely trees as it does tend to get hot here.  The porches are saying come sit on me and watch what is going on in the neighborhood.  Check out all the colors and details.  Such a variety of tropical color…..It was an easy walk to catch all of these and about 50 more….
