From Gerald R. Lucas

NOLA Garden District

Autumn and I spent several days in New Orleans, Louisiana. I had to present a paper at the national meeting of the PCA/ACA (my panel was excellent, but more on that later), so we decided to make a mini-vacation out of it. Autumn had never been to NOLA, and I hadn’t been since before Katrina, so we were both keen for the experience.


I snapped over 1500 photos over the three-and-a-half days we were there. I’m slowly making my way through them. These first shots of the Garden District were actually taken near the end of our visit, on Saturday. We rode the streetcar from our hotel off Canal to Washington Avenue — right around LaFayette Cemetery — and had a nice stroll around with out cameras.

According to New Orleans Online:

It was a pleasure. I wanted to see (and photograph) LaFayette Cemetery, but like the time I visited with Kip, it was closed. One day I’ll make it.
