  1. Wow…the stripes were ripped right out o’ that flag!
    Nice shot, Louis…love the colour in the statue…

    • thanks, cap’n! this was a tricky shot because i had to stand in the rain for quite some time waiting for the flag to blow just right. ha. yes, all three of the flags got pretty shredded in the storm — you can only see a bit of the state flag in this shot. i walked past today and they have all been removed. the american flag in jackson square is still there, though, and it is similarly damaged.

  2. Those are sometimes the best shots – the ones worth waiting for (even in the rain).
    A few years back I shot that same statue, in the rain, and I swear St. Joan saluted! Perhaps a tribute to me Mother who was named for her (Jeanne d’Arc) and whose family came originally form the same region in France (and also some o’ the first migrants to Louisiana).
