It's been strange to see tour guides coming through here with a gaggle of tourists on Segways or bikes. Although I moved to New Orleans just this last July, I've been familiar with the neighborhood for a while. If you've never been, it's a colorful area just outside of the French Quarter with a history of bringing up legendary local musicians and artists. It's colorful, bright and has a clear creative energy that runs through it.
I chose to go a black and white route with these photographs, which shows the neighborhood in a different light (no pun intended). It's not the best representation of Treme...it's actually a TERRIBLE one but I've been into the idea of making photographs of New Orleans that appear to look like vignettes from distant dreams during long, sleepy nights.
Most of these are barely in the area of Treme but I hope to return soon to get more of this beautiful neighborhood that also includes Louis Armstrong Park (seen below).
