new orleans

my visit to new orleans was absolutely fabulous.  i had a great time with dana and fortunately i was there on a weekend when she had some time to spare!  here are a few highlights...

a pre-halloween parade!

the french quarter.

i thought this was an interesting perspective.  a door from the french quarter next to a door from a house impacted by hurricane katrina.

we went down to the 9th ward and drove around the neighborhood.  there are signs of life coming back and we saw some construction going on but there is a stillness to the air.  i couldn't help but think about the people who had to leave their homes - a whole community is now spread across the country.  there is a lot of open space now because many homes were swept off of their foundations and now there are tall grasses taking the place of homes.
