April Leigh | New Orleans, La

I live in Central City, New Orleans. It was hit with flooding during Katrina and is speckled with empty lots and abandoned houses, but it mostly beautiful and interesting with that old shotgun house charm. This house is behind mine and is covered front the back in vines. Surprisingly, a man does live in there. I think it accurately represents New Orleans in the way nature takes over wherever it can. You can't escape the swamp nor the life that thrives in it.
