Shot in infrared, New Orleans’ French Quarter seems bathed in blue early one morning. The oldest neighborhood in the city, the quarter is a national historic landmark and a popular tourist destination.

    Eh. I hated the city when I was there, seemed broken down and dirty.

    And that was a year or 3 before Katrina, so I can imagine how bad it is now

    Places like the French Quarter are pretty much back to “normal,” but you’re right. The place really is just one big cesspool.

    Not a very exciting photograph…guess it was put up because it has the yellow rectangle on it? IR photography isn’t exactly rare or difficult, either.

    Anywho – my impression from 3 visits to N.O. is that yes, it is a big cesspool, and that is the point of going there. Wonderful place where you can be yourself.
