I arrived in New Orleans late in the afternoon. Got settled into my hotel and began to look for interesting photos in one of my favorite visual cities. I made it to the French Quarter and it began to rain. I was looking for this image and as I came around the corner, the rain stopped for a couple of minutes allowing me to get this shot. Jesus the Savior, “come unto me” from the back of St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter, New Orleans, Louisiana.
