A Digital View of New Orleans

We had such an amazing time in New Orleans, which I think is pretty evident considering I took over 300 pictures. There were so many photo ops that I couldn’t snap my photos fast enough. I don’t have the most high tech camera but I must say, my little Canon PowerShot has been pretty amazing to me so far.
