New Orleans has been on my mind for the past few days. It’s been far too long, nearly 18 months, since I last experienced that most unique and soulful of American cities. Despite its rambunctious reputation, it is an introvert’s paradise, as introverts like to observe and listen and boy is there a lot of that to do in New Orleans. It’s where I find my flow state and become what Saul Bellow once called a “first-class noticer”, camera in hand.
These pictures were taken during a second line parade hosted by the Sudan Social Aid & Pleasure Club. I’ve rarely felt as alive as when I was granted the opportunity to walk among this amazing group of people. Shout out to @pableaux who graciously let me tag along. — Wesley
