    Voodoo Spiritual Temple (New Orleans)

    We went on an old time cemetery tour in New Orleans then our guide dropped us off at this weird spiritual center on rampart in a sketchy ass section of town. We go in and the place is a wet mess, stuff just everywhere in the gift shop, all dusty. Then this wacky priestess takes us in her backyard and into what was another building and it was a big room just filled with crap and rolled up money and candles and what not.

    St. Louis #1 (New Orleans)

    This is an old time, 1780s, cemetery in New Orleans LA USA. This lived through Katrina with only a bit of flooding. All the crypts are above ground because the city is below sea level. This is by the French quarter but is also near some real sketchy areas so don't just go there without a posse with you, mental patients and street people will rob you hardcore.

    Strolling the Sweet City of New Orleans with a Backpack Full of Lomography Cameras

    I set out to capture the magic of New Orleans, Louisiana. Armed with a backpack full of cameras, I had one day to set out what I intended to do. This city is very dear to me and I really wanted to capture the essence of the people, food, and culture that make up this city. As they say in NOLA, "Laissez les bons temps rouler"!

    Bourbon Street (New Orleans)

    This is where people flash their boobs and get the beads and show their gay junk depending on the time of year but it is more than that. It is like a history theme park and reminds me of Disney world but with tons of liquor and crime and the like. Most of these busted down buildings are from the French era mixed with the English and African and some pirates for spice, it is just lovely.
