Blues in the French Quarter

Ever thought about painting your shutters bright blue? Never crossed my mind. I have seen a few bright blue shutter photos on other City Daily Photo blogs recently and it got me to looking around. We were down in the Vieux Carre' (French Quarter) recently when I noticed this blue and yellow design.

On another note. I promised not to complain about the weather. But I thought I would bring you a few more updates, because weather blogs seemed to have exploded on the City Daily Photo sites. And why not, with three active tropical system, the hotest weather ever sprouting up everywhere, flooding and more. Some posts of note:

I like how you have your reading material set up for other sites. Nice. I've seen blue shutters around our area. I like how colorful it is though.

Howdy Steve,
I want to say that I am most grateful for your comments the other day on my blog. The tip about Google Earth referencing is so sensible and I will implement it at the next opportunity.
I have noticed that Eric at PDP has a method of directly linking a position so that when you click on a link, Google takes you straight there, without having to start-up Google Earth.
Was this what you meant. I will do some research and see how to do it.
Thank you again.

Those colorful contrasts of bright colors is one of my favorite things about New Orleans ... really one of the only places you'll see such bright shutters in the US.

I am finding it amazing that we are having very pleasant weather here in the tropics compared to so many other bloggers - i guess you are hanging out for the cooler weather!!!!
