Peaking back and forth in time



Gaze down a street in the New Orleans French Quarter and it seems as though you are looking back in time.   Then let your gaze wander up and you see the office and hotel towers from the center of the city and you leap back to the 21rst Century.

Nice contrast. The last time I was there I don't remember even noticing the high-rise buildings in the distance.

Quite nice. The street looks like a place I would like to stroll.

I'm glad there is such a blog as this out there. I've been searching for some New Orleans blogs and stumbled across this one. Keep up the good work. God, I miss New Orleans.

For us New Orlean is associating with streets like this ;))

There is nothing like it anyplace else on earth! I'm jealous of those who get to absorb it daily.
