I’ve broken bread here countless times as Soul’s Seafood sits hard on the Uptown Second Lines routes. Get an order of turkey necks with boiled potatoes and eat like an old school uptowner.

Louisiana Daily Photo: Crawfish Etouffee Dog From Dat Dog In New Orleans

At $9 this is one dear dog and it’s unlikely we would have it again.

I shot this girl at a Mardi Gras Indian street parade in the mid-city neighborhood of New Orleans. I took nearly 400 photos that day and this was one of my favorite ones. She had a crowd of admiring teen girls surrounding her while she paraded.
