Normally The French Quarter is noisy. People are walking around in all states of decay. Some are tired. Some are lost. Many are drunk.
Every now and then, you can find a beautiful stillness on the old cobbled streets. Both times of day have golden light and long shadows.
The most predictable time is early morning. The partiers are finally home. The tourists aren’t out and about. Only service people are working. And, me.
Or, during golden hour around dusk.
Pick your location. If you are in the residential end of the Quarter, you might see this scene. If you are on Bourbon Street you might as well join in with the revelers. Or, photograph them.
Since light is key, so are times of day. Time of day may change forever in Louisiana since we are one of 19 states that are asking Congress to let us drop Standard Time. Arrrggg.
Stay safe. Enjoy every fried egg.
