Yves, thank you very much!!

Gerry, I got really lucky with this shot. I somehow managed to NOT capture the incredible amount of dust on the outside of the window I was viewing from.

According to the chinese letters on the sky there must be Chinatown. ;-)

Is there a Chinatown anyhow in Big Easy? I can't remember. But I'd like to go there once again. I have a lot of good memories to New Orleans.

Great shot, btw. :-)

Hi Dann! Your New Orleans series is great! This one I like especially because of the beautiful sunset and big sky! The 'painting' in the sky and silhouettes of the Mississippi bridges are beautiful too. You sure had a good view from your hotel! Cheers, Anne

Poly, from what I gather, there was a Chinatown in New Orleans, but it was redeveloped after the resident Chinese population was assimilated into the city. Do you know what the letters in the sky say? I had a fantastic time in the city!

Anne, thank you very much. Our hotel was nice, though the area of the town was rather ... quiet.

Greetings Dann, Nice sunset. Quiet, meaning that New Orleans is still a long way from being back?

Cheers,

Rich

Dann Cianca on February 8, 2008

Yes, unfortunately Rich. While the more tourist-friendly areas of town have been maintained, much of the city is still in ruin ... especially residential neighborhoods. In our area, it wasn't damage from the storm that was apparent, it was just that many of the buildings were abandoned. It was very quiet.

Indeed Gerry, but the game is never over ...
