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.
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.
Of the many architectural gems through out New Orleans, one of the most imposing belongs to the Federal Court complex. In the American sector of the city, this court structure is grand in design and topped with magnificent weathered bronze sculptures at the four corners. The Court of Appeals building overlooks Lafayette Square and faces head on with historic Gallier Hall.
One of the quieter corners within the French Quarter. A small alley meets a main street just outside the imposing marble court house. Exchange place once continued through where the court stands today.
The Botanical garden’s lily pond springs to life every year with bright flowers. We enjoyed the gardens on this beautiful day, where we caught this shot of the lone white flower surrounded by a world of green.
