Missing Window

With it’s partially missing 2nd story window and apparently vacant upper floors, this building, near the Central Business District of New Orleans almost looks abandoned.

Dragonfly in Dry Grass

“Don’t walk through that tall grass,” my Uncle warned.  “It’s full of chiggers.”  I decided to go anyway; there were some lovely wildflowers I wanted to shoot and I’ve survived worse than a few chigger bites.  Two weeks later my ankles finally stopped itching.  The wildflower shots were okay but this dragonfly made the itching worth it.  If I didn’t know better I would sweat it’s actually smiling.
