Awesome.

That Masons comment cracked me up.

I've often had to endure monologues of people's lives/random facts when I meet them out in the field. You have to perfect the slow backaway from these people.

Big Daddy, don't tell the Free Masons I was talking about them!

Kartek, haha, thanks, I'll start practicing.

Dude are most of the places nearby where you live abandoned? Because I can see how that could be depressing!!!!

Also, I think I'd rather bump in to a crackhead than a reverend talking my ear off. That would make me more anxious.

Lastly, I love the picture of the doors (with the no stealing sign on it). You could blow that up and frame it. It's very spooky in a good way.

The manicure/cheesy hair salon eyeball on the Mason's sign is hilarious. It's like they went to the Korner Signery:

clerk: "Okay, so that takes care of the lettering. May I interest you in any pictures on the sign? You can take a look through this clip art book. If you get two your third graphic is half price."

head mason: "Hmm...I want a third-eye, but I don't like any of these. Well, I guess this one isn't SO bad..."

clerk: "That one looks mysterious and evil to me."

mason: (sighing) "I guess so. Yep, I'll take it."

Nice blog. Ya beat me to it. I have many pics of places abandoned here in the ol' bloody stick. Was going to do the same. Hmmm, maybe join forces? I have exclusive pics of the huey long tunnel before the renovations. Too many to list. I gain entrance. Not by force or in an ignorant fashion, but by cunning. Never taking anything or disturbing. The building I work in is over a 100 years old. Hell, the high school I went to was over 60 years old when they tore it down. I have pics of various states of destruction. The past is alive here.....you jus need to know where to look.

I would love to find out what happened to Romano's. They made the best (and very cheap) pork chop sandwiches.

If you are curious about what a lot of the old building were in their day, try tracking down a local senior citizen. I know I've heard a thousand stories about what all the downtown buildings were years ago from my grandmother. Apparently the new Boudreaux & Thibodeaux's bar used to be the first Piccadilly (which started here in Baton Rouge). Happy hunting!

Large buildings seem to be works not made by men, by its vastness and designs. But these buildings is indicative of the potential that man can offer.

I documented the Purpera building this weekend by taking several pictures (6-14-14). I like your pictures, however, you sound very condesending. I do not like your blog. You sound as if your heart is in the wrong place for what you do.
