Thanks Patricia and Conrad. Many of these old buildings down near the Mississippi River have disappeared to make way for a rejuvenation of New Orleans. What a waste! The metal circle on the left is acutally the decorative end of a long metal rod that was commonly used to hold the slab of brick to the inner wall of the building. That area of town is not a place for a lone woman pnotographer to venture, so I go with a tough fireman photographer who knows the area well. #50356

Thanks for that background, Kathleen. And I'm glad to hear you don't venture there alone. #50361

Dear Kathleen Parker,
the combination and the contrast of colour and composition makes this image stick in the mind. A beautifully conceived interpretation of an unusual subject. David IJ #62331
