Electric Service Pole in the Lot across the Way.

In Lot across the Way, I told you of the electric service pole a contractor installed in the vacant lot which has turned into a meadow. Here it is!

You can barely see it here.

But on the Telemachus Street side,
it's as plain as day.

The contractor's name is visible, so give him a call, and ask him to do electrical work on your house! :^) No crank calls, please.

Cloud Mountains

Last night the setting sun illuminated a series of cloud mountains off to the northeast...


And this morning a huge cloud mountain came and sat on my house!

Bicycle Roundabout 3

Still three-quarters finished.
But people can use it now.

Photo was taken on Saturday, September 13, 2014. Looking "upriver" from the Lafitte Street side of the block, and Bayou Saint John. Soon the last quadrant shall be built and the Lafitte Greenway Bikepath will be connecting into it.

But if you compare it with the progress of the construction in Bicycle Roundabout 2, you'll notice that the construction crew has taken a piece of the roundabout out for some reason. Otherwise it would be complete!

Lot Across the Way.



Nature is an excellent landscaper. The best!

 This is the vacant lot across the street (Baudin) from my house. Presently the lot has been repeatedly allowed to grow into a meadow... but not for long. Someone installed a construction electric service pole for the owner's contractor who will build a house or two upon it, facing the side street (Telemachus).

Another Curious Cloud

Photo taken on the 9th of September at 6:06 PM.


 
 
It looks like something's glowing from behind the dark cloud.

Last Evening at Sunset

7:29 PM CDT, Monday, 8 September 2014, Mid-City New Orleans, I took this picture:


The I-phone camera does not do it justice. What appears to be a streak of light from left to right between the two houses was in reality, a cloud that appeared to be like gossamer fabric, folded over on itself many times and lit up by the setting sun beneath it.

Bob Clarke Car

Remember MAD Magazine's artist Bob Clarke?

You can see samples of his illustrations of cars here, here, here, and here.

Well there's a real life Bob Clarke car right here in New Orleans! It's an all-white sixties-era Volvo 164.
