New Orleans | Photo of the Day

179 posts in this topic

We've got a Louisiana Photo of the day thread, a Baton Rouge Photo of the Day thread, and a Shreveport-Bossier Photo of the Day thread, but no New Orleans Photo of the Day! :huh:

I never made one, because of the fact that nearly all of the photos I post in the Louisiana Photo of the Day thread are from New Orleans. But as I was going through my photos today, I realized just how many New Orleans photos I had that had never been posted.

So here we go, the first New Orleans Photo of the Day! :D

I'll post one of my personal favorites, and probably the "fan favorite" as well:

Entergy, by far the largest company in New Orleans and the state of Louisiana, ranking in the top 250 on the Fortune 500 list:

This was a great move Nate. Long overdue. New Orleans surely deserves it's on photo of the day. The urban scenes seem endless.

Nice pics BTW. St.Louis Cathedral gets good air time on FOX Saints home games; and I like Entergy Tower. A powerful looking building.

Entergy Centre- at 530 feet, it is the 5th tallest building in New Orleans:

Here's an interesting view from the Plaza around the Superdome. On the left is obviously the Superdome, on the far right is the New Orleans Arena, towards the middle is Plaza Tower, and left of that you can see the peaks of the Crescent City Conncetion, way off in the distance.

Entergy Plaza is one of my favorite NOLA high-rises.

I commented already on the great location of that pic on La.Photo of the Day.

Nice job Nate :thumbsup:

Lafitte Projects...

Wow, you ventured into an area where I would never go with a camera! Though post-Katrina, it is a different story, during the middle of the day at least.

Cool photo, Chris! :thumbsup:

I love buildings like this. :wub:

I think it's really cool as well, Dan. When you see the tower from that angle, it looks like it's razor-thin, literally. But then once you get closer to the building, you see that it's actually a very large and interestingly designed tower.

Lafitte is one of New Orleans' better looking projects. It looks like it was fixed up. bwcooper3.jpg-This is the CP3.

Great shots!!! I really like the photo that show the WTC and Harrah's new high-rise hotel. Entergy Centre is one of the best designed skyscrapers in NOLA!

Walking around New Orleans, it's pretty easy to see that it's not a very religious city:

The lantern crown of the 85 year old Hibernia Bank Building in New Orleans. At 355 feet, it was the tallest building in the state of Louisiana for 11 years, and the tallest building in New Orleans for 46 years. The lantern crown is very well lit at night, and for decades it served as a navigational light for ships on the Mississippi.

What is it they're building on Common?

Looks like there's a real good chance of those twin glass towers being built at Jefferson Hwy at South Causeway.

I thought I had posted this photo already, but I guess I just forgot.

Some of the fantastic architecture along Royal Street in the Quarter:
