New Orleans From The 36th Floor Before Hurricane Katrina

I waited a few extra hours for a room with a river view on my last trip to New Orleans.  These were taken through a full-length window on the 36th floor of the New Orleans Sheraton on March 14, 2005, the day after I experienced a St. Patrick’s Day parade on Magazine Street. I’ve been thinking about that view all day and about the giddy fun of the parade, trying to keep those images superimposed on my mind while tragedy floats by on the screen.
