First day of down in New Orleans!

March 25 my group went down to Holy Cross neighborhood to photograph the houses that were under water 6 feet. There are still a lot of damage houses down there. We met a woman who lives in that there. Her name is Shella. She introduce us to Ms. Stacey who live across the street from her. Ms. Stacey told us everything about the neighborhood. She said that it was a multi culture, multi class, and multi diverse. Also, that it used to be a bad neighborhood till Katrina hit.

After Holy Cross neighborhood we went to take a quick break then went to the French Quarter to shoot street performers and the buildings there during Magic Hour (sunset). The culture is amazing there and the food is great. We ate at this place called Cajun Cabin. Wow!!! It was delicious.

After sunset some of us decided to explore the town. It was a lot of fun and I recommend that people should experience New Orleans once in there lives.
