While MJ and I where walking down Frenchman Street, just outside the French Quarter area of New Orleans, we ran into Amzie Adams twice. When we passed him the first time, I told MJ that I needed to get his portrait. So when I saw him a second time, I didn’t miss the opportunity. Thankfully, Mr. Adams quickly agreed and let me take a few photos. It turns out he is an artist and musician who has been a fixture of the French Quarter since the 1960s.

By the way, we found Frenchman Street to be a pretty cool place within the city with all kinds of cool bars….. Not that I was out late at any time. MJ and I were tucked into our hotel room fairly early each night after spending almost all day outside in the sun.
