Jackson Square in New Orleans, Always another angle for a good photo

      Jackson Square in New Orleans is always a great place to take photos over and over again.  You will always get a different look depending on the light and the walk you take.  The statue of Andrew Jackson get photographed thousands of times a week.  Wonder how many photograph this angle.   

      At one time the square was known as Place d’armes.  In 1815 after the Battle of New Orleans the name was changed to Jackson Square.  It was not until 1856 that the equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson our 7th President was erected.  The sculpture was named Clark Mills and his name can been seen on the base of the statue. The other side of this photo.

     In 1960 Jackson Square became a National Historic Land Mark….Rightfully so.  Clark did 4 identical statues and that can be another story.
