Elizabeth, I'm glad that you appreciated this one. You have it exactly correct - haunting and beautiful. Thanks for such generous support.

Cheri, Glad you were able to preserve this beautiful remnants of this Beauty, now gone, and that is a good thing to do, capture something before its demise! Nice to share with others, as I love the ruins, but the cascading of the lovely florals adds a very special touch. fave and vote

Madalena, I am honored by your feature of "Spirit of Elmwood". Thanks!

CONGRATULATIONS!! Featured on Female Artists - Creative Women!!! Great artwork, love how you have done this!!!

Yes, I hated to see it go as well, Marian. I agree it was a magnificent place - so sorry to see the modern subdivision in its place. Thanks for the F/V!

Cheri what a wonderful photograph. I grew up close to Elmwood Plantation. It was so beautiful, it saddened me when the grand home burned. voted and favorite

Mark, thanks for your thoughtful comment. I hadn't quite thought of it like that, but you are correct. It was springtime and the wisteria had taken over the ruins - very lush, vibrant and, yes, very alive.

Such a moving image. Alive yet so decayed. Great job.

Renee, thanks for such a generous comment and support. Yes, I do remember the Elmwood Plantation Restaurant. It was a special occasion place for us to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries. A sublime dining experience under those magnificent live oaks! I'm glad that you approve!

Cheri, you photograph my home town of New Orleans in the way I wish I could! v/f Thank you for this gift of seeing N.O. through your lens. There used to be a fancy restaurant at Elmwood -- you probably know the history. Anyway, your composition is excellent in this and your other work, and I'll be visiting your site often. And thank you for your gracious comment about my watercolor screech owl.

Wow...this is so good! Ruins and blooms....fabulous!

Cheri Randolph replied:

Barbara, it was indeed a winning combination to have discovered. Thanks!

Vivian, thanks for your generous comment & vote!

Dean, thanks for the comment. I do find them fascinating because they all have a story to tell, secrets to discover. Thanks for the V/F!

wonderful shot Cheri, I love abandoned and decaying buildings as well :) vote/fav!

Pete, glad that you liked it, and thanks for such a favorable compliment. I've enjoyed quite a few of the images that you have posted in your gallery as well - seems as if we sometimes focus on similar subjects.
