Moving to New Orleans I was immediately drawn to the Mississippi and its affinity to the city. I am intrigued with both the juxtaposition and interaction of nature and man-made structures found on the Levee and River. The activity is constant due to both man and nature. The River is a conduit for boats and wildlife. The bridges span the river and connect its banks. The bright green parrots nest along the Levee in the telephone poles. The train-tracks and working cranes running along side add linear elements. All of these images converge in a cacophony of River life.
