Sky Watch #275: Go Niners!

31 Jan

2012_12_06 204

In line with the staging of Super Bowl this Sunday, my Skywatch image today is a twilight scene from New Orleans taken in November, after the Thanksgiving Holiday. We were flying to New Orleans from San Fran to catch a cruise to the Caribbean. The plane was filled with 1) cruisers and 2) 49er fans. The San Francisco 49ers were in New Orleans to play the Saints that Sunday.

This is a twilight scene from Jackson Square with Jackson’s statue and a frontal view of the St. Louis Cathedral.

Go Niners!!!!!

SKYWATCH is a weekly gathering of sky lovers and sky watchers. Join us.

    This is such a beautiful place for a picture…especially at night. I remember it well. My daddy was from NOLA so it holds a very special place in my heart. genie

    A nice twilight shot. Enjoy the cruise, and since my Broncos decided not to play well a couple of weeks ago, good luck to your 49ers!

    I am not a football fan, but I will root for our State’s team. Go niners!

    We did not picked any particular choices of restaurants because we were busy moving from one place to the other taking photos. We eat at any place wherever our cameras take us. But we frequent Bridge Street.
