I will interrupt the regularly scheduled New Orleans posts to interject this special request from Nikki.
This next one has a bit of a story. I took a picture of Robert and Nikki, but had the background focused...not them. So I asked them to wait and let me take their picture here...after all, it was so pretty there.
Just as I get ready to snap the picture, Nikki spotted a rat the size of a hound dog, screamed and pointed, and Robert apparently was taking the old saying 'Every man for himself' seriously. I was able to capture this for eternity.
A marvelous trip to New Orleans. Left mid-day Friday and came home Sunday morning. Not enough time. Simply not enough. I, of course, took pictures. I'm going to post this trip in a chronological series. As it happened.
I could photograph New Orleans 24 hours a day, and still not get enough. I have some favorite places to photograph, and New Orleans is one of the top contenders. I could just stand in one spot and take pictures for hours. People. Details. Actions. Interactions.
But, I did not stand in one place. I walked. And walked. And walked. It was a feast for the eyes. A magical land to photograph.
Walking out of the hotel, I immediately started to photograph. And this is our trip...

Last Saturday evening we went to the Saenger Theatre for their Classic Movie Series. We saw "Citizen Kane" on the big screen. I wish I could say I was swept away, but alas, I wasn't. I believe I had the movie so built up in my mind, that nothing could live up to the reality. Even though it is thought to be the best movie of of time, I say "Pfttttt...." Not impressed.
On another note, the theatre was lusciously beautiful! So ornate. Grand and lovely. So the evening was not a complete loss. And I enjoyed being there with Drew.
