“Times are not good here. The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under taxes and frauds and maladministraions so that it has become a study for archaeologists…but it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio.”
-Lafcadio Hearn, 1800s
I have nothing against Ohio, but I know what Lafcadio was talking about. This place is different. Some see garbage, blight, poverty and ruin when they look at New Orleans. I see incredible architecture, beautiful people, and a way of living that embraces the now.
I take a lot of pictures, and you can look at my views of the city on my photo blog here.
