New Orleans Music Photography #GlobalTravelerSherry

Tuba can be heard echoing throughout the city.

It’s Friday, so let’s put a little music in your life.  I spent last Friday night in New Orleans photographing the music in the streets of the French Quarter and on Frenchmen Street.    I loved capturing the musicians in action, after all it’s the heartbeat of the city.  This city is alive – see for yourself –  Happy Friday!
