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 next "Random NOLA" Photo. Click on the picture to enlarge it. Give it your best shot and put your guess in the comments section:

Since I'm so new here (just over a year now) I know these places and have seen them, but I can't put street names to them. I did know the hardware store and Alma Peters playplace, at least.

Walmsley Ave where the Catholic elders make irrational decisions about whose church counts and whose doesn't. . .

You didn't stray very far to take that shot.

Sarabeth - Not to worry, it will come to you in time. New Orleans is not all that big a place.

vmm - Heh! Nicely-said.

celsus - True; but sometimes the closest and most familiar places to us are not well-known to others. Thought I'd give it a try. I do need to circulate more in different parts of the City, though! Whenever I am in Gentilly or the Bywater or Lakeview, I always don't have my camera! I need to remedy that.
