My View (vol. 5)

This is outside a local bar down Tchoupitoulas Street - we took a walk down to get a snow cone at Hansen's before looping down Magazine. Tchoupitoulas is pretty industrial; the Port of New Orleans is on the other side, and there is a smattering of brightly painted houses, bars, fix-up car shops, restaurants, a Rouse's, and one house advertising for jazzercise. This bar caught my attention because of the distinctive painting on the walls of the otherwise warehouse-looking bar, and even the tabletops are painted to look like billiard tables.

This is one aspect about New Orleans that I will really miss - the creativity and beauty of even the more worn down locales. The ability to create beauty in the midst of concrete and palm trees, a view of stacked shipping containers and broken sidewalks.
