I quite like the second shot.

Certainly a depressing view, but I expect that was your point. The second one is rather neat, I like rust photos.

I look at that first photo and thing to myself I bet there's nothing hotter than cleaning a New Orleans' roof top on a summer day.

Maybe why it's such a mess?

Thanks for the comments everyone. This Hotel was actually a very nice one, the Sheraton on Canal Street. We stayed at the Hilton for two nights, and the Sheraton for two nights, in order to stay four nights in New Orleans. We went to the Saints' last game on Sunday, and then the Sugar Bowl was played on Wednesday the 2nd (Louisville chomped the Gators). Hotel rooms were hard to find, especially for four nights consecutively. I only took these shots to test a new camera, the Canon SX50HS. All the hotels in the downtown area have these fabulous views.

Only photographers can find beauty among decay.

Roof top views are always interesting I guess being exposed to the elements increases their decay. Nice compositions.

You are right, though it's not often we get to shoot down at a rooftop. This is a couple of times a year for me. Thanks for the comment.

Hawg,
My first impression was of a photographer - checking out your composition, etc. After reading your description it clicked - many years ago, during electronic school training at Keesler AFB, we stayed at this hotel when visiting New Orleans. Many good memories of this city. Also got to go to your town, Pensocola Beach, where we camped. Thanks for the flashback!!!!

I love New Orleans. We get over there about once a month, average. We usually stay at Harrah's. I can say that the waitstaff in every restaurant we have eaten in, is first rate. Friendly, and always smiling and joking. We have had the chef come to our table with a sample of whatever he happens to be working on at the time. He picks tables at random.

I guess I feel blessed living here on the gulf coast, with balmy temps year-round. The lack of four distinct seasons is something I miss occasionally, from being stationed in the "north" in my army days.

Glad I could provide a flashback, at least a GOOD one.
