The night in New Orleans

New Orleans may be a different city at night. During the day, the Cathedral of Saint Louis, The Cabildo, Café Du Monde, and at night, a few blocks down, neon lights, colorful billboards and nightclubs contrast with the old. In the French Quarter, in particular, the nuances of the French, Spanish and African heritage are noted. The gates of the bars and the announcement of open shops shine at dawn. It is the most festive part of the city, with rock coming out of the places and jazz on the saxophone of a black man sitting on the sidewalk. Along Bourbon Street - its main artery - are the people, a horse-drawn carriage and the Tarot. Photo: Osbel Concepción.

Alleyways

It is a city and its alleys. There are people who pass by and meet to each other. The beauty of ruined buildings and the sadness of those same buildings in rubble. Bicycle-taxis, American cars and citadels. Doors and walls. The walls and Yulier P’s sad-beautiful graffiti. An Old Havana, a very old one.
