So. I did what I usually do I’m feeling a little caged and went looking for New Orleans decaying away. I’ve been meaning to photograph this building which is in Uptown and very near to the cobblestone street where I’ve made so many pictures. In fact, I see it every time that I drive up Tchoupitoulas Street. Yeah. Say that name really quickly three times. Anyway. Traffic is usually against me and I can’t get to that side of the street. But, I could this time. So, I photographed the building to death. There are a number of pictures that I like. But, I really like this image for its texture. I especially like all the ghost signs. As far as the building goes. It’s been a lot of things. It was home, a small factory, a restaurant, a bar. I think it might be a restaurant again. I’ll have to look into it. Not much post production here. The picture is what it is.
