Social Aid and Pleasure Club

A couple of days ago, I posted a photo of a second line gentleman, waiting for the rest of the group to show up. And here’s what happened after they’d all arrived.

New Orleans’s social aid and pleasure clubs, which are part of the second line traditions, are an interesting cultural institution, and you can read more about them here and here.

Go marching in

Lights playing off the bell of a trumpet, an easy scene to find in New Orleans.

Second line gentleman

Second lines are a proud New Orleanian tradition, and this gentleman was waiting for the rest of his group to arrive, and the parade to begin.

Go here or here if you’d like to learn more about the second line tradition.

Levee, late afternoon

I had one chance to get this shot before the gentleman walked out of the frame, and I barely made it. He was walking pretty fast, probably to escape photographers…

Shop Window

The shop was closed when I went by, which is a shame: that assortment of things in the window was very interesting.
