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.
This enormous praying mantis prop stands quietly waiting for next year’s Mardi Gras parades. The prop is approximately 12′ – 15′ tall.
The three-dimensional facade of this building in Algiers, Louisiana reminds me of something ancient and something modern.
Cypress trees creep out into the water. The early morning sun begins to warm their trunks and nourish their leaves as a new day begins.
This cypress tree stands alone, out in the water. I shot this picture at sunrise from about 300 yards away. The fog drifted around the tree as the sun slowly swept it away. As the light and fog were continually changing, I kept shooting and ended up with this image, where most of the fog is between the tree and the shoreline, highlighting it’s isolation.
The repeating geometric patterns of this building facade grabs my attention.
Life begins to stir among the cypress trees as the sun slowly peeks over the horizon.
