French Quarter Cottage

One of my favorite things to do when I am in New Orleans is to get up early (generally, I am slightly exhausted) and wander around the French Quarter. I walk different street and get to enjoy the amazing architecture of the quarter. I have shot many photos of New Orleans over the years.

I love the weather look of some of these cottages.  The thing that amazes me is that behind these shutters is generally a different world. Lush and amazing apartments are hidden by these time tested wooden cottage shutters.

There were a couple of cottages that I shot that day, but I loved this one best. Ironcially, the color photo isn't that different, but I think the black and white really makes the patina show in this picture.
