For me, visual forms of social media, like Pinterest and Instagram, have quickly overtaken my interests, replacing Facebook and Twitter as favorite places to spend my time online. Let’s face it, pictures are just prettier and more interesting to look at!!
I follow a lot of locally based New Orleans Instagrammers, and so I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorites. I’ve broken them down into loosely organized categories to make it easier to digest. Dig in, because here are 75 New Orleans Instagram folks that I think are worth the follow! (Plus a little lagniappe after each section!)
NOLA on Instagram
“My dad made me go to an after school program and I decided to pick band just to get it out of the way. When I was playing in the band I started to enjoy it more than I thought I would. Eventually I started getting better and better because I practiced my trumpet.” “What do you want to do with the trumpet in the future?” “I’m not sure yet – probably travel around the world. But first go to some kind of college or some kind of music college to study jazz music.”
