WHO DAT!

WHO DAT? This is New Orleans. A city founded by buccaneers, soldiers, and river rogues. We are the descendants of many nations. We came together to form the Who Dat Nation. We eat alligators, breathe hurricanes, and drink the Mississippi. We can outlast, outrun, and outshout anyone on this earth. Who dat? We dat. You..……. can’t buy dat and you don’t own dat!

A House in Mid-City

Wow. Just wow. I’m not sure this picture fully captures the beatdown, ramshackle, dilapidated look of this poor old house. It literally stopped me in my tracks when I rode past on my bike. This is in my neighborhood, but I’d never seen it before.

I didn’t talk to any of the immediate neighbors, but I’ve got a suspicion that they’d say it looked pretty much the same before Katrina.

Bridge Over Calm Waters

So, I get to the ferry to go into town, and town wasn’t there. At least, the lower half wasn’t. It was surreal, to say the least. These are some shots I took waiting for, and on, the Louis B Porterie.

Midway across. The bridges looked more ominous than usual.Could just be my meds wearing off though!

I had some time to kill so I wandered down to the water’s edge for a nice panorama shot. Try real hard and you can find the spires of the cathedral.

Happy house. I’ve been meaning to shoot this for weeks now. It’s on Burgundy, really needs to be experienced in person, it’s that bright.

Under consideration for a Demolition by Neglect citation by HDLC

“Demolition by Neglect” refers to the gradual deterioration of a building when routine or major maintenance is not performed. The ordinances which created both Historic District Landmarks Commissions entrust the Commissions with insuring that structures located within the local historic districts and landmarks designated by the Commissions are not allowed to be demolished through the neglect of the owners. A Demolition by Neglect citation issued by the Commission is against the owner of the property for failure to properly maintain the property.
