Standing tall



One of the most photographed buildings anywhere is St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Tourist from everywhere come to shoot the standard photos from across the street in Jackson Square, or to find that one unusual but striking angle.

Here, our grandson, Sullivan, proud of how tall he has become, sees how he stacks up against the cathedral's spires. In the movies they used to call this the American hero shot -- shot from very low to make the hero seem more legendary.
