Thank you, Colleen and Pete!

Wonderful work Steve!

Terrific eye, Steve. Great photography.

Give me 10 days or so and I'll let u know what I know

Steve Harrington replied:

Great! :)

Steve Harrington replied:

What fascinates and puzzles me most is the varied window styles. Surely they were once uniform. It is a fine enigma! :)

Thank you, Sondra! The building is at 111 Rue Iberville, directly behind or north of the Westin Hotel on Canal St. I would love to know more about its history.

Steve, Fantastic eye, great capture. Like and Favorited Would love to see more of this image, as I may be able to assist with its architectural origins

That would be terrific, Cheri! Thank you!

Steve, intriguing capture. I have never noticed this building before, but I'll have to check it out when I return. Also, I can post a question to the columnist at the "Gambit" periodical who answers such inquiries to see if he has anything to add about this architectural variety. V

Thank you, Dean! And thanks for your detective efforts, Sharon! :)

Steve, I haven't been able to discover anything about the architecture, this is really intriquing...

As impressive as number 2 Steve, great photography! vote/fav!

Thanks, Diana! I don't know about ethnic diversity, but the cracks and rust suggest natural selection is hard at work. :)

That would be great, Sharon! Thanks a lot, Gun!

Just awesome!

very strange achitecture Steve, I love this...I'm going to try to find out something...

Thanks, Sharon! The building is behind the Westin New Orleans Canal Place Hotel. I would love to know more about it. That might help solve the mystery of the window styles.

The first thing that caught my eye was the windows. and the size of this building, Empty? and in the French Quarter.. I'd love to explore this. Very interesting image Steve.

Thanks a lot, Lenore!

This horizontal version is also superb! Instant v/f

FANTASTIC! My dad was a maintainer on F-105's in the early 1960s, and wore the blue "Thunderchief" patch on his fatigues. This was a birthday present for him, and the smile when he pulled it out of the box said I'd struck gold.

Artist's Description

An abandoned building on the edge of the French Quarter in New Orleans. I was fascinated and mystified by the variety of window styles.

About Steve Harrington

Steve Harrington

I am a retired professor at a college in Toronto and taught critical thinking and communications. In the past I also taught literature, creative thinking and problem solving. I've also had the opportunity to teach about and lead tours to a variety of world destinations including backpacking through the Canadian Rockies, traveling above the Arctic Circle in Norway, into the Sahara in Morocco, and throughout Southeast Asia with a special focus on Thailand. It was my four tours to India that formed me most profoundly, both as a person and as a photographer. It is a magic land of extremes in every sense of the word. More recently I had the opportunity to expand my world view with travel to the Peruvian Andes, the back roads of West...
