New Orleans shotgun houses

These photos were taken in late June or early July 2008. Jessica and I went down to New Orleans for a few days, then to Mobile, Alabama, for July 4. Pleased to report that most of NO is looking just as it always did. Lots of Katrina damage, still, but in much of the city it's hard to tell what buildings were damaged by the storm and which ones were just due to fall down. We spent one day driving around the city and just looking.

Our time in NO and Mobile was spent much the way we live life here in South Carolina: going to used book stores and record stores, wandering around looking at old houses, and taking pictures. I concentrated on buildings, while Jessica started a collection of photos of "New Orleans Kitties".

No cats here. This is MY blog, after all.
