Where I Live - 3Muses Challenge

I first came to New Orleans on a weekend trip.  What I remember most on the bus trip
 into town were the cemeteries: "The Cities of the Dead"

As a child of the modern suburbs, my second impression
was of the history of the place.

The buildings and the streets of New Orleans were hundreds of years old.
Most of what I grew up with were buildings that were all less than a decade old.

Add in the music, the food, and the people,
I was in love.


  1. Beautiful and enchanting! Hope to visit New Orleans someday. :)

  2. A beautifully mysterious tour of a city I would love to visit- your vision of this rich and historical city is fascinating!

  3. A different view of a city I have heard so much about. Love the images very haunting.

  4. When I first looked I thought you lived in a cemetry! LOL
    New Orleans must be such a fascinating place! I'd love to visit! xx
    Lovely pics by the way! xx

  5. Fabulous artwork gorgeous and hauntingly lovely...how fun that I have a friend who lives in New Orleans I have always wanted to come down for Mardi Gras.

  6. Beautiful, haunting and slightly mysterious. You have done a fantastic job of introducing us to where you live, Lou. Take a deep bow.

    Happy 4th, my friend.
