This week’s photo: New Orleans
I snapped this photograph just outside Jackson Square, where an artist was selling some cute cat paintings. New Orleans is an amazing city and one of my favourites among the American cities I’ve been to, mainly for its history, culture and atmosphere.
The city’s uniqueness comes from it being in the state of Louisiana, which used to be a French and Spanish colony before it was sold to the United States in the early 1800s. This background gave New Orleans its incredible multi-cultural heritage.
New Orleans has also had a vibrant artistic and creative community for decades- the city is regarded as the birthplace of jazz music and it was here that legends like Louis Armstrong (who was born in New Orleans), Billie Holiday and Ray Charles used to perform.
