New Orleans, Louisiana. April 29, 2018. Lafayette Cemetery, 1833. While this scene isn't too festive, we did play Jazz Fest later in the afternoon.

If the layers could talk..

NoLa Day 2 : I havenโ€™t been here in 19 years, I forget it really is the city that care forgot (in the best possible way) ๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽบ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ“ฟ๐ŸŽญ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿค #LafayetteCemetary  #StCharlesLine  #GardenDistrict 

If New Orleans is not fully in the mainstream of culture, neither is it fully in the mainstream of time. Lacking a well-defined present, it lives somewhere between its past and its future, as if uncertain whether to advance or to retreat. Perhaps it is its perpetual ambivalence that is its secret charm. Somewhere between Preservation Hall and the Superdome, between voodoo and cybernetics, New Orleans listens eagerly to the seductive promises of the future but keeps at least one foot firmly planted in its history, and in the end, conforms, like an artist, not to the world but to its own inner being - ever mindful of its personal style. ~ Tom Robbins, Jitterbug Perfume

Lafayette Cemetery was very similar to the last cemetery we went to, however there were a few differences: 1) There were trees and plants growing inside. It made walking through a nicer experience. 2) There are a lot of firemen laid to rest here. 3) The water damage/age was very apparent here. The headstones were warping, and the words were being worn away. I'm surprised at how much was worn away and not restored, but I'm sure the repairs are costly. 4) You cant rely tell from my pic but in my second to last shot posted, you can see beads on a gate with stairs that lead to an elevated plot. That was super interesting as the people were buried in dirt like other places, but the plots were housed above ground. That was very unique, so far. The area around this cemetery was really nice as it is located in the Garden District. . . . #NewOrleans  #neworleansculture  #Cemetary  #Lafayettecemetary  #gardendistrict  #NOLA 

MARDI GRAS was a blast!

Black cat at a City of the Dead, #lafayettecemetary  New Orleans. Should i be concerned.

Cemetaries are scary but there is beauty to be found and love.

Wandering around the Garden District - clementines on the tree in January! #neworleans  #clementines  #lafayettecemetary 

โšœ "There are a lot of places I like, but I like New Orleans better. There's a thousand different angles at any moment. At any time you could run into a ritual honoring some vaguely known queen. Bluebloods, titled persons like crazy drunks, lean weakly against the walls and drag themselves through the gutter. Even they seem to have insights you might want to listen to. No action seems inappropriate here. The city is one very long poem. Gardens full of pansies, pink petunias, opiates. Flower-bedecked shrines, white myrtles, bougainvillea and purple oleander stimulate your senses, make you feel cool and clear inside." โšœ - Bob Dylan . . #nola  #neworleans  #laissezlesbontempsrouler  #bobdylan  #cajun  #louisiana  #frenchquarter  #riverwalk  #Gardendistrict  #preservationhall  #stlouiscathedral  #houseoftherisingsun  #Lafayettecemetary  #arneradventures  #HanleyandFritz  #travel  #traveller  #travelphotos  #worldtravelphotos  #wheretonext  #travelgram  #bayou  #downinthebayou 

"I have always enjoyed cemeteries. Altars for the living as well as resting places for the dead, they are entryways, I think, to any town or city, the best places to become acquainted with the tastes of the inhabitants, both present and gone."

Ghost hunting in the graveyards of New Orleans.

Have you ever gotten a seat at the Carousel Bar? This place was always crowded from open to close we never got our chance. Guess we will just have to go back to New Orleans and try again. ๐ŸŽ 

A quiet soulful morning in Lafayette Cemetery
