Everyone seems to want to know "when will we see cranes in the sky?" But since the vast majority of project in New Orleans are repairs or renovations to existing buildings -- "building for the inside out, not the outside in" I like to say -- cranes are not the construction tool of choice in most cases.
But there are plenty of projects with cranes, like this project on the London Avenue Canal that I drove up upon one day.
Lagniappe -- I didn't find any construction photos on the City Daily Photo blogs today, but I have to say there are more amazing shots out there today than I have ever found amassed in one day. Let me point you to a few of them. (or take the tour yourself -- here)
Ruby-throated Hummingbird -- Brookville, Ohio
Bottles -- Chateaubriant, France
Italy -- Quick Snap 365 (London)
