French Quarter after the rain

I loved taking photos at night in the French Quarter – it’s just as pretty and colourful at night as it is during the day.  The restaurant in the picture, the Italian Barrel, was one of my favourites of the trip, and I’d highly recommend it if you find yourself in New Orleans. A block or two down the street on Decatur is a really cool store that I can’t remember the name of (I’ve spent the last hour on Google and Google Maps trying to figure out exactly which store it was on Decatur)… it’s full of all sorts of weird, wonderful, bizarre, and beautiful treasures, oddities and works of art. I want to go back to New Orleans just to visit the store (discovered it on the last night of the trip) again!
