I enjoy photographing unique aspects of my home town of New Orleans, Louisiana. One of these is the decorative Crescent City water meter cover which can still be found in a few places in the French Quarter. I really like the crescent moon and stars theme. I used this photo as a template to create a faux diamond version with silvered text. Also shown here are an antique cast iron gargoyle door knocker and one of the many variations of horse head hitching posts that line several of the downtown streets.

One of the fun things about New Orleans is Mardi Gras and the related carnival season. Festive colors are everywhere, generally in purple, green, and gold. I like to create designs with the French fleur-de-lis symbol (also associated with New Orleans) in Mardi Gras colors. Here is a clock with a purple, green, and gold fleur-de-lis surrounded by a colored numeric dial. Also below is a clock featuring a photo of some of my collection of colorful Mardi Gras doubloons.
