NOLA-13

NOLA

I’m so honored to have had my travel photos of New Orleans in VietSun magazine this month… I thought I would take this chance to post a few of my favorites.

NOLA-17

Before I visited the Big Easy (aka NOLA), it was difficult for me to understand the spell that New Orleans casts on its visitors; it wasn’t love at first sight, the city is, indeed, complicated.  But I fell, hard, for the complex layers of soul that are so signature New Orleans.

Part of the allure, of course, is that even post Katrina, New Orleans looks like a movie set.  Colors fill the picturesque Southern porch-front houses during day and historic gas lamps light them at night.  For transients and locals both, the city still feels ripe for discovery – something that’s increasingly hard to say about most other North American cities.  With its reverence for the past and a magically diverse culture, New Orleans has the kind of resilience that holds on the hearts of visitors.  Even for natives who left after Katrina, seeking a different (possibly better) life in neighboring Texas or Georgia, many have returned because they found it impossible to feel at home away from NOLA.
