Traveling is something everyone should do at least once a year. It takes you out of your comfort zone and introduces you to new adventures. Being exposed to new culture and people will shift your perspective on how you see life. As an artist, traveling makes me more creative. It introduces me to different architecture and attires of a culture. Listening to the stories of those I meet along my journey, adds to mine. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of taking a road trip to New Orleans. Having heard so many great things about the city, I could not wait to arrive.
Traveling together with Ron Hill, we originally started our journey in Atlanta. After spending one day in Atlanta, we embarked on our road trip to New Orleans. Upon our arrival, the weather was warm with a slight breeze, very welcoming. We checked into the Double Tree and canvased the area. Planning to only be in New Orleans for 2 days, we wanted to do as much as possible.
The first afternoon was spent exploring markets, talking with people and stuffing our mouths. We wanted to study New Orleans before capturing it’s beauty.
We stopped at the French Quarters, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city of New Orleans. Filled with so much culture, history and entertainment, there was adventure awaiting every corner. The architecture here was picture perfect, every building had its own personality. Some screamed party with bright and vibrant decor. Others seemed more vintage and antiquated.
The people here were very welcoming and we started many conversations with various people. Most often asked about my outfit. The first day I wore a Vintage Moschino suits I got from the thrift store months ago and its one of my favorite suit at the moment. Here’s an preview from Steven Onoja Wear, it would be coming by the store near you.
as we soon found it was something we loved to see – all of the New Orleans shopping, unique pieces and interesting Seafood to try was such a blessing to be amongst first hand.
After wandering around for hours, Ron and I worked up an appetite. Everyone who visits New Orleans will enjoy the food. Restaurants range from formal to casual but each offer truly unique New Orleans flavors. Louisiana is known for their seafood which was fresh and of great proportions. On this trip I tried a shrimp burger for the first time. Being a lover of burgers and shrimps, my taste buds really appreciated this combo. If you love seafood, your tastebuds need to experience New Orleans grub. To wind down I would recommend a trip to New Orleans City Park. With an array of fresh flowers, plants, and open grass space, the park is beyond beautiful. It also has a botanical garden, and carousel rides to bring out the inner kid in you.
Hope you guys enjoy the pictures. If you have any feedback , questions or anything else please don’t hesitate. I would love to hear your thoughts.
