The rulers of Whistler
These photos are from when I visited New Orleans on a work trip earlier this spring. It was my first time there and I thought it was a really cool city. Everything was very unique and interesting, from the architecture to the different cultural influences in everything (cuisine, language, etc).
Earlier, I also posted a gallery from when we roamed around in the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden on that same trip.
I took this a couple weeks ago. I took a mid-afternoon break that day and decided to get some bubble tea at the café by the river.
A nice day for a stroll through the sculpture garden at City Park in New Orleans.
This may be the creepiest house I’ve ever seen. It was just a couple of blocks over from where we stayed in New Orleans, during my team meetup last week. It’s like a real-life House of 1000 Corpses. Notice the glass shards all along the wall – do you think that’s so people don’t get in … or out?

Grumman Greenhouse is a sculpture by artist Jordan Griska, in Philadelphia. It is located right outside of the Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts in the Lenfest Plaza.
Grumman Tracker II was a 45-foot-long cold war era Naval plane with a 73’ wingspan, used to bomb submarines. Griska obtained the decommissioned plane and folded the metal of the nose and body of the plane so that it appears to be crumpling into the platform. In addition, he turned the existing sections of the plane into working greenhouses, leading to the name of the piece – Grumman Greenhouse.
