    • Yeah, I don’t get it. These girls stand around on the sidewalk or just inside the doorway in outrageous and bare costumes and run when anyone points a camera at them.

      • HAHA! I can remember when I was a young mom, I didn’t know just HOW wild Bourbon Street was and I’d wanted to take my kids to see the Mardi Gras celebration. Thank God I had more “worldly” friends who told me ABSOLUTELY not. lmao

        • Many women must look back after their kids are grown and realize how clueless they were as 20-somethings and their kids were small.

  4. Yeah, the “Does Not Like Photographers Guy” is funny. “No Cover” for a strip joint is pretty funny, too. The girls are out on the sidewalk showing off the goods.

      My ex girlfriend was one of these people and probably worse. She did thousands of porns before we got together and what a shocker it was. I mean she did the most crazy ug… but kind of hot, make your grandmother’s head turn around kind of thing. I’m still kind of recoiling. I know she worked in places where she didn’t have to dance so that means she did much more. On pornhub type in felony….. if anybody else has stories about this girl who got thick when she was older, please let me know. She went by Zilla or Antonette w/friends. 100’s of aliases though.

  8. What do these people expect? They try to attract attention and when they get it they don’t want it. Doesn’t like photographers made me laugh too. Eye opening post, thank you and keep up the good work.

  25. Nice shots. In the big NO for the holidays. Been wandering the beautiful French Quarters taking shots on the more deserted streets. Avoiding Bourbon Street since I have the kids, but survived walking the street myself when I was a kid and it was more shady than it is today. They just covered my eyes a lot!

  29. Bourbon Street insanity – the great redundancy of all redundancies. On Bourbon Street, it’s a great idea to perform the Crocodile Dundee method of gender determination. But, it might cost you 20 bucks.
