More architectural details

The Cotton Exchange, New Orleans

I really wanted a wide enough lens to capture the inscription.

Window treatment of the Cotton Exchange

Alas one does not quite get the detail of the copper trim at the roofline

Back when windows had presence

Scrollwork, New Orleans Cotton Exchange

I have not completely stopped taking pictures like this. It's just that I have already photographed most of my immediate work environment and because of carpooling I don't take the leisurely lunches I would prefer.
