Muriel's stands on a corner of historic Jackson Square in New Orleans.  John took several photographs of the striking building while in town for the Sugar Bowl, particularly attracted to the wonderful colors of the building, sky, and horse-drawn carriages that passed by.  Unfortunately, his Canon Powershot G5 possessed such depth of field that the photos all captured every distracting detail, making each photo seem particularly busy.  After several experiments, John found an interesting technique that rendered the photo as if painted by sponge that retained the colors while removing much of the unnecessary detail and had created his first piece of photographic-based artwork.
