Exploring New Orleans

by | North America 2018

The Queen of Louisiana

In February 2017, I traveled for the first time to the city of New Orleans in Louisiana. I had never been to this part of the USA, but a good friend invited me, allowing me to experience the unique atmosphere of the dirty south. New Orleans has been through some harsh times with floods and a crumbling economy. Still, the city is prosperous with its cultural scene.

New Orleans is well known for its musical reputation worldwide—the city is built on Jazz. Therefore, every year there are dozens of major festivals. Luckily, I could witness a few events during my stay, and I used these occasions to take a couple of pictures. Please enjoy my best photos of New Orleans, and please feel free to leave me a comment.

Hi, my name is Christian Köhlert, and I am a photographer and digital content creator living most of the time in Montreux, Switzerland. In 2018, I traveled once more to North America to get some surfing in Baja California. Still, my first destination led me to New Orleans. The experience was terrific, and I documented my whole journey in pictures. I have many more in my Travel Photography Blog if you like my photos.
