Courtyard at Bayona

Courtyards are such a staple of French Quarter places that I had to take some shots. Of course night photographs are always trickier. Here are some from different areas of the courtyard
at Bayona.

Tuscany Mural

Being an artist myself, I was impressed with the Tuscany landscape mural in the room where we dined.

Bayona Restaurant in the French Quarter

Recently I dined with my family at the French Quarter Restaurant, Bayona Restauarant, located at 430 on Dauphine Street. Several of them had eaten there before, but this was my first visit. Naturally I brought my camera. Here are some photos
I took.

The cloverleaf at I-10 and North Causeway is in the process of being changed. New ramps are currently under construction. Here are a few shots.

The Dining Area at Café East

On the side walls of the restaurant there are alcoves with shifting colored lights. While dining, guests can watch the colors travel the spectrum in a continuous loop. The group enjoys trying out different menu items.

Café East

For a number of years the New Orleans Mac Users Group has enjoyed dining at Café East at 4628 Rye Avenue in Metairie, LA. The members get together, following their computer meeting, to enjoy each other’s company and enjoy the cuisine. This time I remembered my camera.

Blue Dog

There is a brick path that begins at the intersection of Veterans and Severan and meanders toward a circle around the "Blue Dog." Having started from the yellow side of the piece, I walked around to the red side and finally the blue side. So there you have it the “Blue Dog.” See Wendy Rodrigue’s blog, Musing of an Artist’s Wife, to read more about George Rodrigue's work.

Across from Lakeside Shopping Center

This week another sculpture was installed on Veterans Boulevard across from Lakeside Shopping Center at Severn Avenue. It’s George Rodrigue’s “Blue Dog” which is made up of three sides including the: “Blue Dog,” “Red Dog” and “Yellow Dog.” So you have to walk around to view each one.

Artist Hunt Slonem's aluminum sculpture "Toucans" now brightens an extremely busy suburban intersection at Clearview Parkway and Veterans Boulevard. The toucans are very colorful and fun. I took a closer look to see what exactly I'm driving past at the sculpture.
