NEW ORLEANS CHARACTERS

WyoJones' New Orleans

On a walk through the busy streets of the FRENCH QUARTER one's senses are subject to a myriad of sights, sounds and smells. The clip clop of carriage horses, the smell of freshly baked pastries, the sound of water being used to wash a sidewalk, and the lonesome sound of a sax from the street corner are woven into a rich and unusual tapestry that is the New Orleans experience. New Orleans is a city that needs to be seen, smelled, touched and heard in order to be understood and appreciated. The most interesting sights are often the people. From the tourists in the Quarter to waiters at the Camellia grill there is always some one interesting with whom to converse. Some are a little weird, some are amazing and almost all have an interesting story, These lives and their experiences make up the fabric of the wonderful place that is New Orleans. The city has long been known for it characters which in the recent past have included Ruthie the Duck Lady and Harry the Singing Mailman along with names like Clarence The Frogman Henry, Fats Domino, Irma Thomas, Harry Connick Jr,, Aaron Neville, and Winston Marsalis. I am still surprised from time to time by the uniqueness and sometime strangeness of it all. Below are some images of a few of the characters i have met in my 20 plus years roaming around the city.
