I Got this Graveyard Woman: Summer in the Crescent City


“The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds – the cemeteries – and they’re a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep. Greek, Roman, sepulchers – palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay – ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who’ve died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn’t pass away so quickly here.”

“You could be dead for a long time.”

- Bob Dylan

Darlings, I am traveling around the great city of New Orleans this week but will be back to regular posting next week.  In the meantime, here are a few photos of the Crescent City to tide you over until my return.
