DescriptionThis is a photograph taken in 2009 of row homes in the French Quarter, New Orleans. If you are from the big easy then you know that these homes are referred to as 'shotguns' because you could theoretically fire a shotgun through the front door and the pellets would fly cleanly through the house and out the back door.
Alex Balcer, Ocean City, NJ Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement I take pictures, and they say that they're worth like 1,000 words. So in essence I figure that I've got to be just about the 2,847th greatest novelist of our time!
I try to take advantage of my limited travels to take the best pictures that I can.
I would rather be on the beach than anywhere else, but then again, who wouldn't?
To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, Every cubic inch of space is a miracle, Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same, Every foot of the interior swarms with the same; Every spear of grass—the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women, and all that concerns them, All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles. - Walt Whitman - Miracles -
