Up on the Roof and Back

Bold TextWhen I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)

Up On the Roof, Goffin/King (popularized by The Drifters)

I took a walk to the rooftop terrace of the Shaw Center in downtown Baton Rouge. Here are some photos from the roof and from the trip back home.

Another view of the Old State Capitol

Architectural semi-shade

Shadow pattern

Courthouse construction site

A whole new tower

City government green space

Rooftop sculpture garden

A dog?

Intentional and unintentional art

Water tower and Mississippi River bridge

The "old bridge" about eight miles upriver

Ground cover

Ground level fountain

Fountains in full bloom

New marketing campaign begins at LSU Museum of Art museum store.

Roux is what you do to cook like a Louisianan.

Another way down from the roof

The ambience is better than the service at Boudreaux and Thibodeaux.

Currently undergoing a stalled renovation, this building has been home to about six different businesses in the last 20 years.

All topped by the eternal Coca Cola sign
