4 Days 2 Year 5: A Photographic Journey

In the neighborhoods, the convenience of someone on the corner, cooking food in a restaurant or a take-out place is priceless. Many people that work 1 or 2 jobs have no time every single day to come home and prepare a meal for a family. The luxury of having someone else cook can mean an extra hour of sleep, an extra hour or two helping children with homework – the time savings are endless.

One wonders what happened to all these neighborhood food establishments, and the men and women who cooked in them. I hope that someone else, somewhere else is the lucky recipient of some good New Orleans home cooking cause many of them have gone missing here.
