Wordless Wednesday: Second day in New Orleans

Cool looking stuff in the window of this thrift store but it was closed! So sad! Bargain Center, 3200 Dauphine St, New Orleans.

Lori Kay and I walked a lot on our second day in New Orleans. The Bargain Center murals are posted first time here but the other photos were first appeared in my other blog Cactus Haiku. You might enjoy reading Haibun : Uber drivers, clarinets and Eric Waters as Uber drivers shared their experience of Hurricane Katrina and Lori Kay and I talked with photographer Eric Waters. I’d repost it here but it’s supposed to be Wordless Wednesday, lol.

I can see Pinkie and Midnight salivating over this Koi mural found along the walk. Not sure who did this one. Let me know if you know so I can attribute the artist. (Close to St. Claude Ave. & Marigny St. next to the Tubman mural)

  1. Dear, dear Mary,

    So very wonderful to see you and your posts. I know its been eons and I did miss your #WW linkups. I was a bit away from the circuit the last few weeks so missed your lovely post. Apologies.

    How have you been? Pinkie and Midnight doing good?

    I love these pictures. I am a huge fan of grafitti and wall art and these warmed my heart, on a gloomy day.

    Thanks for the pick me up. 🙂

    Hugs

  2. Wow! The architecture and art in New Orleans are fascinating. I know it’s a location with rich history, but seeing it through your lens is really neat.

    Thanks for sharing these. Think you’d ever visit again? The thrift shop could definitely be interesting 🙂

    1. I thought the architecture and art was pretty cool in New Orleans too. I hope to visit again. The funny thing about blogging about a place is that you become more interested in it. I would love to visit the thrift store when it is open — love the view through the window…. Oh, I should share that. I have that photo somewhere too.

      1. I could see how that would happen 🙂 Becoming more intrigued by a place once you’ve gotten the words down on ‘paper.’ Writing does something in the soul and releases a dam of creativity that helps process everything we’re thinking, doesn’t it? 😉

        I’d love to see the photo you mention. I’ll look forward to more from you, as always! ♥

        1. I agree that writing releases a dam and processes your thoughts — as I write, I find my thoughts develop further and then I get curious about something that may not have occurred to me before — with google, it makes it easy (although not necessarily accurate) to research and find out things you didn’t know about a place, a thing or a person. I’ll look for it and post it — maybe for next sabi saturday.
