Back by popular demand are the photos we took in St. Anthony's Garden, located behind the St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, in 2004. The photos are from two consecutive frames taken with a 35mm camera. We still have no idea what that white mist is that begins to appear in the first photo, then makes its presence really known in the second.
Built in the 1700s, the St. Louis Cathedral is the oldest continuously operating cathedral in the United States. During Hurricane Katrina the trees in St. Anthony's Garden dislodged thirty feet of ornamental gate, but the marble statue of Jesus lost only a forefinger and a thumb. Locals say that the statue of Jesus sacrificed two fingers while flicking the storm away from the city, saving it from total destruction.
Last year Marilyn P. commented: "Pirates Alley is right next to the cathedral. There have been many ghostly sightings there. Maybe that's what's in your picture. (Insert ghostly howling here.)"
We think Marilyn just might be right ... Judge for yourself. And have a Happy Halloween!
