Sunday Stills: Buildings Over Four Storeys High

It’s not difficult here in London to find buildings over four storeys high – sky-scrapers are more the norm than the exception – so I’ve chosen instead this beautifully curvy modern building for this week’s Sunday Stills challenge. It’s relatively low-level for being in the middle of a big city, but is notably unusual in its own unique way 🙂

Old family buildings in Pierre Part, Louisiana… pierre-part-barn

My husband’s grandfather’s old Sucrerie – where sugar cane grown locally was processed into sugar products… pierre-part-house

And the first family home my husband ever lived in as a baby, with the 1960s supermarket of his first cousin once removed in the background – boths buildings still in the family but now used only for storage, so not abandoned as such, but sadly dilapidated and no longer used for their original purpose.

Louisiana: Old Buildings in Black and White

I found an old back-up disk yesterday containing some original digital photographs I’d thought I’d lost, and amongst them were these images of old Louisiana buildings from across the social hierarchy, taken with a little compact point-and-shoot in 2008… 🙂shadows-on-the-teche
