Architecture of a [very] different type: St. Louis Cemetery #1 in New Orleans

Posted on: September 19, 2009

It’s not your typical day to day, but the art, artifacts and architecture of my neighborhood cemetery is quite beautiful.

I’m loving the new digital camera the OMOTH (In my case, that stands for the ‘Other Man of the House” – Cheers Millie!) bought me for birthday/anniversary. I’m spoiled by having my own personal DSLR now. Fare thee well, point and shoot. I think the Nikon does a really nice job – please take a look at my Flickr.com slideshow.

The first time I went to NO, I was so confused by the cemeteries. Certainly, they were beautiful (and likely all older than the county I grew up in), but I didn’t understand them. It took a friend’s explanation about the flood zone to realize why everything was above ground.

I felt weird when I first visited NO and loved the cemeteries so much, but the detail and design is as beautiful as any other part of the city.

OMOTH – just love that! Your photography skills with your new camera are awesome Nate, these would look fab enlarged & framed, especially the B&W’s.

Nate and Louis

Well, hey there. I'm Nathan and this is the Laurel Street Blog. It's a place for talking about design, decor and DIY (with small amounts of snarkery snuck in). I'm a pretty restless guy who loves house projects and lives in a 150+ year old cottage on Laurel Street in New Orleans. Since the house always has something going on with it (or falling off of it) I'm subsequently blessed with a never-ending supply of Web content to share. Oh - and you can drop me a line anytime LaurelStreetNola@gmail.com. Enjoy!

Can I get a tweet up in here? Follow along @LaurelStreet
