An interesting experience of walking the French Quarter in New Orleans is having people from the various bars that line the streets try to entice you in to their particular bar. And they are not rude or obnoxious about it at all. In fact, there is a genuine, friendly and jovial air that isn't necessarily stemming from the libations poured inside. New Orleanians are just plain nice people.
This guy didn't mind me taking his picture, even though I didn't want to come in. What you don't see is another guy who kept ducking inside the doorway just to the right of this shot. He, too, was trying to get people's attention for his friend but went to great lengths to dodge the click of my shutter. Wonder why...? I'd love to hear the stories of those who brave this life in the flood, tornado, and hurricane ravaged city along the waters of the Mississippi and the Gulf.....
Next trip. I ask more questions.
