Gathering of angels, New Orleans, Louisiana, 2012

The famed French Quarter of New Orleans is the city’s oldest neighborhood. Some of its present day buildings were built under Spanish rule, however a majority of them were refurbished in the Victorian Style after the Louisiana Purchase. Wrought iron balconies such as this one can be traced back to the 1850s. I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this veritable gathering of concrete angels gazing through the balcony’s lavish foliage. The flag of Italy is only one of a number of flags that fly from this balcony – the building is most likely a hotel or bed and breakfast. I made this image on a cold December day, populating the frame with incongruous angels large and small. They may have been placed here in salute to the Christmas season.
