New Orleans – Inside the St. Louis Cathedral

To wrap up this year of blogging (7 months to be exact) we take a brief look at the St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. It is located on the NW side of Jackson Square and faces towards the Mississippi River. I was waiting for people to go sight seeing with, so I stepped inside the Cathedral to get a quick look around. It was also one of the few times I was in the area that there wasn’t a mass or wedding going on in it that weekend. I only got a few shots before I had to leave, but I think they highlight the interior architecture (I think I covered enough of the exterior here).

I would like to thank all of my readers and commenters for this initial start up to my blogging. I am looking into setting up an online store for my photos, especially after doing a calendar of NYC pics for christmas that did fairly well and got really nice reactions from people.

Coming up for 2013 in no discernible order so far: Upstate NY snow, more New Orleans (Benachi House, Mississippi River, Musicians & People, NO at Night), hoping for more snow so I can do a session in Central Park and around NYC, but that involves nature cooperating.

A happy New Year to all!
