More Images: Race & Religious

That compound of buildings on the corner of Race and Religious was built with bricks of Mississippi mud. Its newest owner, using his idiosyncratic eye as guide, filled the interior spaces with swaths of liturgical fabrics, Oriental carpets, odd little paintings, hand craftred pieces of cabinetry and dozens of tiny lamps that cast soft pink light through aged silk shades.
There is a constant roar of 18-wheelers and busy traffic outside the high walls, but that doesn't affect the sense of being in some hidden world, away from the every day.
Here is more of what I saw in these high ceilings rooms that we called home for two days.

Your photos tell the story of your stay in this unique place. You packed a lot into two days.
