Missing pieces

This was my alternative picture for September's Theme Day -- Street Lamps or Street Signs. If you missed the theme day, it was September 1 -- just page down a couple days and see what I posted and what other City Daily Photo bloggers put up for the theme.

This just seemed to capture the spirit of New Orleans from me -- struggling not just to rebuild all the damaged housing and businesses, but struggle to get the amenities back that we take for granted -- street lights, street signs, parks, walkways etc.

But, celebrating life and not giving up traditions as we do it.
