Houses of New Orleans (5 photo series)

This house is in the Bayou St John neighbourhood, an area that was under 3 feet of water
during huricane Katrina. The older houses are raised so some weren't destroyed.

This is in the front garden of the previous house - look in lower left.

This house is in Algiers, a neighbourhood reached by a 3 minute ferry ride across
the Mississippi River.

An evening stroll in the Marigny district, an up and coming neighbourhood next to the
French Quarter, shows the work being done on the old houses. Even to matching the colour of the pail in front.

These are "shotgun houses". Named because you can shoot a gun straight through the front door
to the back. New Orleans is below sea level and the same reason you can't bury people
underground applies to hydro/phone lines - too much water.

To "Missed Opportunities", these houses may be modest looking but they sell for a fortune. The one on the right would go for $450,000.

Love this series of 'modest' practical well-kept homes; certainly much nicer than the 'McMansions' wasting space and energy all over this country! Well presented!

P.S. The colours are wonderful, joyful and vivid, and I love the way you've captured all these images.

A nice selection of photos to show a sample of the vibrant colours and architecture of the homes.
