N'awlins Icon


St. Louis Cathedral by twilight.  The grand ole Cathedral is the de-facto visual icon of New Orleans.   It is fun to take pictures of the church from different angles -- plenty easy to do, because it sets across from Jackson Square and you can easily see it from the Moon Walk, along the Mississippi River.

I thought that I had posted more about it.  I suppose I forgot to add a label here and there. But here are a couple of old posts with more photos and/or information on the cathedral.

PS.  I picked up on a new blog  New Orleans Vacations.  It's really well done and well written.  I added it to my blog list (on the column to the right, down a ways).  Check it out.

Outstanding! It is so good to see that even after all that has happened with NOLA the grandeur of this icon still inspires.

This is just beautiful. There is a commercial being played on TV the past few weeks that features New Orleans. I have no idea what the commercial advertises but I distinctly remember the scenes of a couple stopping in front of this church. This is such a beautiful spot.
