Random NOLA

Here is my next addition to Random NOLA, which is a blog posting category that features a photo that I've taken from places around the city of New Orleans that make up a part of my day. They won't be pre-arranged. And I'm going to try to make them pictures of inconspicious scenes, but potentially identifiable to the attentive native. In other words, don't expect to find pictures of the Superdome or the St. Louis Cathedral or other such easily identifiable places. Where possible, I'll also try to keep street signs out of the picture, too. The goal is not only just to share a brief, random part of the path of my day, but also to see if true NOLA-philes can figure out exactly where in the city this scene is located. So, without further ado, here's the third "Random NOLA" Photo. I would say that this is perhaps the easiest one yet; but give it your best shot and put your guess in the comments section:

It is so hard for me not to mapquest your route to your office from your house using the google feature that shows pictures of the route to determine these site locations. It just kills me not do that. Just thought you might like to know I'm dying here in Boston racking my brain, trying very hard not to cheat.

This is pretty easy pickings. I'll leave it someone else to guess.

In one: Grey's Hardware at State and Magazine, across from the Shell Station. You are standing in front of the Wow Wingery on the lake side of Magazine shooting upriver, towards the zoo.

Grey's = Clement. There is some mention of Grey or Gray on the sign though...

Alex - Yes.

celcus - I will stump you yet!

Julie P. - So nice to hear from you! It's not cheating to search Google Earth or some other mapping program. Please feel free to do so at any time. It's all part of the fun!
