Okay. My hubby, who is a budding photographer, works at the Domino Sugar refinery which is basically across the river from New Orleans. The tallest part of the refinery, which is well over 100 years old, is where he went to take these. I myself would have had a heart attack halfway up, and almost had one anyway when I saw where he went to get these photos.
I just have to share these, he's a shy one.
In the background of this picture, you can see just part of the New Orleans skyline. In the foreground, you see some of the loading platforms, where sugar is loaded onto trains and raw materials are offloaded. You can see the railroad.
In this picture, the Steamboat Natchez approaches, and the N.O. skyline is more clear.
For comparison purposes, here is a super old postcard of the refinery. My hubby took his pics from that tallest building you see there. He was facing the direction where the photographer who took this postcard pic would have been standing.
Thanks for looking. Boy is he gonna be surprised when he gets home from his hard day of slogging around in molasses to find that I have exposed his photos to the world. muhuhahaha!
