Mardi Gras

It’s been a long hiatus! The last month or so has been extremely hectic, but I am finally getting things back to normal – including the blog!

So what have I been up to lately? Well, judging by the title, I’ve been to Mardi Gras! I had a blast in New Orleans during the holiday and got a few decent pics. The floats were incredible and entertaining and I was able to catch a lot of good loot!

I’m so-so about the Mardi Gras pics. I think my main criticism is that I don’t have enough shots from the front of the floats, nor did I ever venture to the other side of the street to get different angles. I was Uptown, so I also wasn’t able to get an “aerial” view of any floats or the crowds, though I suppose I could have briefly commandeered a ladder to do so.

Here are a few shots:

Mickey and Minnie made an appearance! You can see the ladders in the background of this one.
