Iron Works

Everywhere you turn in New Orleans there's wrought iron twisted into the most magnificent details. My world this week has been marveling at the handiwork of all these wonderful art forms. Some of these gates, doors, fences etc.. are over 250 years old. These beautiful pieces remind me of all the gates in Charleston, South Carolina. Where are all these hidden blacksmiths today? Drop by and go on an adventure to see how others around the world tell of their adventures.

  3. Fabulous post! Brought back lots of memories of when I lived in New Orleans and my walks through the French Quarter, peering behind those beautiful wrought iron gates and doors! Thanks for the memories and the gorgeous photos!

  4. These are all magnificent examples of an almost lost art. Now days some one would mold it out of plastic, yuk.
    Great captures. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I never see them with so much ornaments, that´s why these are quite exotic to me. Thanks!
