The bridge

This is the view from the balcony of St. Vincent's.  Not bad really.  This is the advantage of being on the third floor in a neighborhood that's almost all two story buildings.  

We're fairly close to the river, and sometimes, over the top of the buildings, I can see about the top third of some of the big freight boats coming up the river.. Which was a little disconcerting the first time i saw it.  I was just minding my own business, enjoying the view when I.noticed what appeared to be a large factory was relocating itself.  Closer observation revealed the huge cranes on the wharves, and I realised what was happening, but it was a rather surreal minute or so...

And then, after iposted, i saw the sun shining through a raincloud.  My phone doesn't really do these shots well... hopeyou can make it out...


  1. Claude,

    I feel there is a metaphor here, you stand with the city of New Orleans at your feet and the sun breaks through the rain clouds, read into what you will. But I am sure it all is going to be great. – gary

  2. That must have been surreal! That cloud shot is gorgeous! You do have a very nice view! 3rd floor must be awesome!
