The Heart of the Place

A little photo essay about the heart of St. Bernard Parish. Without getting into the religiosity or spirituality of things, I really do like photographing churches or temples. I also like photographing cemeteries as well. No, I’m not ghoulish. I just find the history of these places interesting. And, I do like their moodiness.

Originally constructed in 1759, it was pretty much ruined by Hurricane Katrina. But, it was restored to way beyond its former glory. When I first saw it, I was stunned. IContinue reading “The Road (Part Three)”

The End of Something
