Instagram is my jam. I could spend hours scrolling through and double tapping all of your pics. What I REALLY enjoy though are some very specific accounts – the ones that I know it’s theirs before I even see who posted it. These are my current favorites that I think you should take a gander at too.
I’ve told y’all about her before! RoamingNOLA started by going on long walks to workout and in turn, found art in everywhere she went. She walks all over the city in search of the coolest graffiti, falling down houses, and odd angles that most of us wouldn’t notice. Denise has a great eye and catches the smallest details. Every Wednesday, I play a game to win prizes on my Instagram account called #whereyatwednesday (check it at BeNewOrleans) that features many of her photos. RoamingNOLA consistently shows you an aspect of a neighborhood that you wouldn’t expect.
I don’t know this guy, but I sure do like his Insta account. Most of his photos are of buildings in the French Quarter. You will also find fun neon signs, Mardi Gras, and beautiful shots of the city. If you love classic New Orleans architecture, he’s a great account for you.
This New Orleans Instagram account is taking the time to find out people’s stories and tell them. They aren’t asking for hand outs, or for you to love or hate someone. It’s just the real stories of real people in the Big Easy. Sometimes it’s people who are homegrown and other times it’s people who just found their real home here. There are days where the stories make you smile, or cry, or just even take a moment to think. NOLABeings is worth scrolling through to make you feel human again.
TowerFantasy just does the most obscure and random photos revolving around the old Plaza Tower. Unused since 2002, I find it hilarious that they have decided to fixate on this building. Who knows where it’s future lies, but we know that TowerFantasy will keep us entertained till then.
