NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – A day on foot in New Orleans. The French Quarter feels like a tourist trap – not much to photograph that hasn’t been done many, many times before. Walked around the Garden District – there are still many Katrina-damaged houses and public buildings around the edges of the Garden District. Again, this is an old (and mostly unfairly told) story so I skipped it. I’ve settled on the following image (up to my old tricks) – Zion Lutheran Church on St. Charles Street. This is a Missouri Synod church. The congregation was founded in 1847 by German immigrants. The present building dates to 1871. Its gothic architecture bears a relationship to the churches that I’ve been photographing in Connecticut, which is what attracted me to it.
