I've seen some awesome photos here this morning, Debra. But I have to say...THIS one has startled me, with its dark, and moody feel. It IS New Orleans...the seedy, scary side that makes us all feel creepy. I feel creepy looking at this photo, but it is a BRILLIANT beauty. Wow!

This really is an outstanding picture Debra. I feel the same as everyone who has commented. There is an air of mystery in the picture. The lighting really draws you in as well as the dark figure in the alley. Definitely sets a mood. Congrats

Terric capture of this classic spot, Debra. Great mood! I really like this street on wet day with all the reflections on the rainy pavement. I recently a painted a version of this street during a wet afternoon.
