Who Knew Old Man River Had Such a Nice Butt?

When I travel, I try to capture the flavour of the area with pictures so I can remember it long after I’ve gone home.  No matter where I go, there are statues.  Lots of statues, and I often photograph them.  These are some of the ones I took while in New Orleans.
