Chartres Street at St. Louis Cathedral and Jackson Square, the lively heart of the French Quarter, is normally a bustling colony of tourists, artists, jugglers, magicians, fortune tellers and live music from street brass bands. But when Deborah Abbott took this photo, it was utterly deserted at 9 a.m. on an unseasonably wintry day in January, with temperatures in the 30s and winds of 15 knots.
