We want to start this post by thanking everyone who has visited our site and enjoyed our posts.
We’re sorry we have been absent for a couple of weeks, our lives have taken us on a grand adventure. We originally started this site as a way to encapsulate all that we love about our native city within a year, because as we grew the city around us changed and little bits of its culture has been pushed by the way side. Progress is a wonderful thing but it should never sacrifice your identity.
Our hopes are to return to the site and continue our posts, but in the meantime we will keep everyone up to date on our new adventures so check back often to see our progress.
The old U.S. customs building at the corner of Decatur and Canal, was designed with a unique colonnade on all four sides. The columns step away from the traditional classics and are more reminiscent of Egyptian with each capital designed to resemble papyrus leaves.
Once the rain passed and the sun began to shine the day turnedout lovely. We were able to take this opportunity to capture the spring time blooms around City Park. These crisp white flowers are a part of the lush gardens around Popp’s Fountain.
We found this great St. Michael statue hidden in the side alley of the St. Patrick’s Church. The Statue is a different take on the classic archangel’s image. Inscribed at the base of the statue is “QVIS VT DEVS” this is the latin translation of Michael .
The main lane of the Chalmette National Cemetery is caped by the Memorial of the Grand Army of the Republic. This is one of a very few memorials of this kind in the south, since it is commemorating the sacrifice of the Union troops during the Civil War.
We want to thank our service man and women active and non-active, past and present. Their sacrifice has been the reason we can live our lives so free.
