Why oh Why Ruin the Character of a House?

Standard

I went to New Orleans last week and one of my friends who had read The Eisenger Element wanted to see the houseĀ I had previously taken a picture of as my inspiration for Linc’s house in the Garden District. This house is down the street from Anne Rice’s former home and I loved it the first time I saw it. We actually drove right past it this time as I didn’t recognize it.

We got out of the car when we saw Anne’s house and walked down the road. AND there was the house. Dull, drab and lifeless now. What were they thinking? It had so much character and now it’s awful. Yeah, maybe it’s more dignified but who wants to be vanilla pudding if you can be chocolate truffles with pecans??

What do you think? Improvement or disaster? Link to The Eisenger Element.

Art I Appreciate

Standard

I want it all!

This is a super hard prompt for me to answer. I have no way to say which I appreciate most. I was a dancer for many years and love ballet, ballroom and tap dancingĀ the best. I could watch the ballet all day.

I’m also an avid amatuer photographer. I’ve been told I have a good eye and I love to take pictures from different perspectives.

My son has an architecture degree and we love to look at buildings everywhere we go. Anytime we traveled when he was a kid, we had to check out all the various architecture in the area. Houses, businesses, churches, statues, we love it all.

I’m also a major film buff. I adore all the old ones as well as good storyline modern ones. I’m not much on the stupid ones but I like a good story. In fact, as a writer, some of my best inspiration comes from the scenery, costumes and cinematography of films.

So, I guess my answer is, give it all to me. All except what they call modern art. I like my art to look like something concrete I can identify. LOL!
