    Love the intricate work on this house in the French Quarter in New Orleans and the lone bag of trash out front.

    I like the simplicity about my eyes though, it seems a bit oversharpened?

    Thanks for the input Dan. After watching a tutorial on Kelby I used 'smart sharpen' in PS on this one and perhaps baked it too long! I appreciate your help.

    Beautiful photo - I love the architecture of the house. :thumbup:
  5. Looks like a New Orleans duplex shotgun camelback house. The oldest ones were framed and sided with cypress. By old around 100 years and counting.
  6. on either Magazine or Tchoupitoulas there was a business named The Strip Shop. You could/would drop off architectural items such as corbels or doors they would immerse them in their solvent tanks and "strip" them. If still open their stock of recovered and stripped architectural items must be large after Katrina. Cypress does not rot.
    Did a googling and found this. Don't know if still open. Would be a great place to wander and see century plus old recovered architectural items.>>>

    I do not know these folks remain having left NOLA in 1982. In the years prior to that we have used their services and purchased items.
    As an aside the easiest way I lost fifty pounds was to move from New Orleans to Phoenix.
