The different “textures” of the city have always been one of my fascinations. I have quite a collection of photos, but selected just a few, from my last visit, for my album “Bricks and Stones”.
Here are three of the images. When you click on each, you will be taken to an online slide show of the photos.
Each photo connects to a different show, but the pictures are the same.
River Street, and the ramps leading to it, is paved with bricks and cobble stones. Many of the stones originated in Europe and came over as ballast on sailing ships. The ballast was unloaded to make the ships ready for cargos of cotton, rice, and the other products of the “colonies”.
Bricks were used for much of the construction of the city as it matured.
Enjoy my album. As I post this message, there are only ten photos there. I will continue to add to the collection, both new and older views.
The first link (railing topped wall) connects to my gallery at CafeLudwig.com. Click “PLAY SLIDE SHOW” at the top to start the show.
The “ghost house” brick wall shows a SkyDrive album. Click the “start” button, bottom center, to see the slide show.
The rails lead to a set of my photos on flickr. This show starts automatically.
So which is the most pleasant way of viewing them? Let me know with a comment below, I would love to learn your opinion.
