Marigny Cars and Drain Covers

New Orleans, USA, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th,11th and 12th November 2014.

This something of a compound post thematically connected. There are two groups of subjects. One is views in the Marigny district near where I was staying. As we left or came back each day I might take a couple of shots though my main photographic focuses for the day might be quite different. The shots of the cars I took on different occasions on a number of days. And the characteristic New Orleans drain covers are from a number of different locations around town, and at different times.

This is a place we walked past every morning.  Frenchmen St is the intersection you can see a bit further on.  There is a closer look at the near car in the next image.

This is a car driven by someone who really knows how to attract the birds.

One morning there was a garage sale across the road from where we were staying,with some interesting ways of attracting attention.

Here is a house in the Marigny neighbourhood, maybe Marigny Street, I’m not sure.

I’m pretty sure this is round the corner in Royal St.

And definitely this one is, opposite where we used to take coffee every morning, along with Eric Kyte, an English architect who designs hotels.

Water covers, Algiers Point.

I guess this is what you call street art, whether the New Orleans Government intended it as that or not.

This is a Cadillac Superior Hearse, from about 1972.  It was parked just a couple of houses from where we were staying and never moved in the ten days we were there.  I came back and photographed it several times.
