We recently traveled to New Orleans; we spent almost an entire day mostly exploring the French Quarter and nearby places of interest. One thing I’ve always liked to do when visiting new places is to go off the beaten path just a bit and see where people actually live, enjoy the architecture, etc. I grabbed a few photos both while on a photo walk with other Type-A NOLA attendees and while driving around on our last day in NOLA. Doors just seemed a recurrent theme for me while taking my photos (I’m fascinated by doors), so naturally, I ran with the theme.
Most of the doors and windows in NOLA had beautiful shutters, and the colors were just amazing. Double doors were also in abundance; they held such decorative charm. Plants added even more curbside appeal, as did all the architectural detail and trim/molding, along with the fresh splash of green on this particular door. This photo was taken in the dark with my phone, so I apologize for the grainy appearance, but I couldn’t resist sharing; I just love wrought iron and the decorative appeal it gives this door. Finally, these doors seemed very regal to me. Again, beautiful colors, beautiful detail. The windows have that modern, yet vintage appeal.
New Orleans is definitely a beautiful city with an “old” style that is beyond words. If you ever visit, take time to just drive around or walk around, and enjoy the architecture of this beautiful city. You won’t be disappointed.
