Doors of New Orleans

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 of New Orleans {}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.

Again, beautiful colors, beautiful detail. The windows have that modern, yet vintage appeal. Regal looking doors in New Orleans

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.

      Dianna, me too! I told my husband we need to some time do a road trip of the South, so we can see all the beautiful homes, plantations, etc. So much history….

    I really wanted to go to Type-A Advanced in NOLA. I love that you shared a little bit about what you found on your photo walk and what you observed in the city. I also notice architecture when I’m traveling. For me, windows are a natural…they always grab my attention. Doors are probably a close second- at least when you have doors like those in NOLA.
