Cigar Maker – New Orleans Louisiana


New Orleans is a great place to visit, the food, atmosphere & people are great.  I watched these men through a window make cigars for quite a while.  It’s definitely something that takes skill to get it right.  I’m not a smoker but if I were I probably would have supported these guys and given one a try.

Poet for Hire

I spent some time in the French District in New Orleans Louisiana earlier this year and couldn’t get enough of the place.

As I was walking down the street I could hear the sounds of a typewriter clicking and when I turned the corner I saw this scene. He had a sign that said “Poet for Hire”. He would ask the person the subject then proceed to type up a poem for them. I wish I had recorded a little soundbite to include with this image. Something I will be trying to do in the future.
