While walking along a side street near the French Quarter I came upon this interesting ironwork.
This barrier faces the street and prevents anyone from entering or exiting a narrow space between two buildings.
The mysterious letters caught my eye first.
As I stared at it, I tried to decipher the code. That is if it’s actually a code at all.
As I reviewed the photograph an hour after I took it, I was intrigued enough to return to the mysterious place.
It was already nighttime as I retraced my steps. Try as I might, I was unable to find it again.
I’m not sure if it disappeared into thin air or if I was simply careless in my memory.
One of those possibilities seems absolutely impossible.
