slow-motion changes on Freret St.


  1. I love the simplicity of the demo (demon?) shot, but the second one keeps drawing me back with all there is to see. Can't make up my mind. I guess I'll have to take both. Thank you.

  2. Hi Glenn, I thought it said "demon" at first too, when I saw it upside down on the sidewalk. As you probably recognize, these are the two library buildings, my current one Jones Hall on the right. The parking lot was rebuilt last summer, and I am assuming the removal of the fence has something to do with creating an opening to the street from the parking lot. Either that, or they are actually preparing to stage the addition of 2 more floors on the main building, primarily to allow for a new a/c system. Since Katrina, it's been operating on temporary tubes. My own building is usually very comfortable. But old and quirky. Thanks Glenn! sp

    1. Hi Cloudia, thanks, that's very true! there's a metaphysical or spiritual side of places as well as people. have a good week, sp

  4. The rebuilding of New Orleans seems to be really slow or is it ! Beautiful place and people as I had my degree in Louisiana some 30 years ago !

  5. Hi Wong, (people on your comments address you that way, so will I!) welcome & thanks for your comment. The rebuilding of New Orleans is painfully slow, it's been almost 7 years since the disaster. But the important thing is that it's happening. It might not have happened at all. And my place of employment is known for moving slowly in peacetime. New Orleans is worth the wait. sp

  6. Update! today they went ahead and "demo'ed" that sidewalk.

  7. They probably saw this post ;-)
