New Orleans is a colorful city. I mean that in every sense. While Autumn here may not be the color-fest it is in New England or Upstate, New York, we have our own colorful displays for the season.
Anyone who reads this blog knows I do a lot of photography, and that I keep photo galleries on my site (http://kennyklein.net/photo.htm). On my computer I keep a file called "New Orleans Misc." for photos I take around town that have no designated blog or other purpose at the moment. The file is full of colorful NOLA shots, so I thought I'd share some photos of the colors of New Orleans.

I love the look of an old, weathered wrought iron fence or gate. Here are some, bounding colorful gardens. In the Garden District, of course.

I also love the look of our weathered brick sidewalks.
Even our garbage cans are colorful...
The colors of houses in the Garden District and in the Bywater.
Above: Quentin Tarantino's Hallowe'en display. Tarantino owns a house in the Bywater. The owl is attached to what seems to be a hydrolic drill.

From New Orleans, this is Kenny Klein, photographing it all.
