A lovely, reflective swimming pool at a community center.

The morning alibi

Philosophically, I think taking early-morning photos of a place that’s famous for what goes on at night is similar to my usual routine of going around back.

Anyway, how fortunate was this find – the sidewalk outside a place called The Alibi getting cleaned of…whatever happened the night before?

Barriers and Beads

Things in New Orleans are often at cross-purposes. Like this foreboding razor wire atop a wall in the French Quarter, and the festive Mardi Gras beads that are caught in it.

Campaign for Restoration

Not only does this church in the French Quarter have regular Masses and other, ordinary churchy things, tourists stop in to check it out. It’s always busy, so I’m sure the ongoing maintenance costs are high. There’s been a church on this site since 1718, and this building’s been here since 1850.

Also, it’s said to be haunted. Père Antoine is said to appear during Christmas Midnight Mass. And Père Dagobert also haunts the place and can be heard chanting the Kyrie on rainy days.

I didn’t see any ghosts, and none have appeared in the images that I made, for whatever that’s worth

The Gap

Where a building was, there’s now a parking lot filling in the gap.

We lived in New Orleans for a few years; when we first got there, someone gave us these directions: Go up Canal Street, and turn right where the bakery used to be.

Not helpful. Not one bit.
