"God is in the details."~Ludwig Mies van der Rohe~
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, was a renowned architect. I think he may have visited here before he wrote this famous quote? I took this photo in New Orleans recently and I was truly amazed at the variety of architecture that seemed to blend together regardless of style. It all just worked in an eclectic sort of way.
If God be in the details, He is omnipresent in New Orleans.
Look at the detail work in the Victorian corbel above, can you only imagine the hours of labor that went into this one fine piece. The skilled hands of a craftsman at work, someone who took pride in the finished product. There are thousands of such details here, some restored and some in dire need of repair.
Walking and photographing had it's challenges, the sidewalks uneven and the subject matter abounding. Thank goodness for digital photography, good shoes and great friends to share the experience with.
Have a wonderful day!
