I Remember Basin Street

A few years ago I was in New Orleans exploring a cemetery on Basin Street on Halloween and among several interesting tidbits, I learned that these crypts were also called ” Ovens.

On the day I was out taking these pictures it was warm.

For a girl from the Pacific Northwest, it was unseasonably hot.

I may have had cold drink in one hand and a camera in the other.

That part of my recollection makes me laugh.

I have to admit though,

 when I look at these pictures Hansel and Gretel and the Witch’s oven pops into my head

and I wonder


or who

I would see

if I cracked open the seal and looked inside.
