I’m going to try one more post for the Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post. Pingbacks still aren’t working correctly for me, but I’m going to give it one more shot anyway.

While we were in New Orleans, we visited Saint Louis Cemetery Number One and I found this ornate fence around one of the tombs. It was actually a little difficult to get a picture of. The sun was bright and bounced off the silver of the fence. I think it lost some detail with all the light play. The design is interesting and I think it would have been prettier as an iron fence. The glaring silver drove the ornate feel over the top.

It’s way past my bedtime and I’m fading fast, so I’m going to take the easy way out today and post a picture.

Jackson Square from our 2010 vacation to New Orleans, Louisiana. There are so many details you can’t see from this far away, so I’m planning on posting more pictures later.

All around the outside were merchants and artists selling their wares. So talented! I really wanted to buy a painting, but I was afraid we wouldn’t have room in the cramped vehicle to take it back with us. So, I bought some of the best pralines I’ve had in a long time in a little shop near Jackson Square.  I think Aunt Sally’s was the name of the place. I even brought some home for Mom. Much smaller than a painting. Tastier, too!

Jackson Square

I only fixed the sky in this picture. It was a little grey so I added some blue. I don’t edit everything, but the more I practice the better I get, right?
