Amzie Adams

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.  You can check out his website here:


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.
