photographs the Mardi Gras,
in New Orleans.
Showing all, the energy, celebration and color that is the
Mardi Gras!!!!!!!!

-a city that is on parade along St. Charles Avenue,
for weeks leading up to fat tuesday.
Where the greatest rewards are Beads and trinkets and doubloons.
thrown to the parade watchers outstretched hands from the passing floats.
Throw me some beads mister!
is the chant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but there is also music in the air and dancing in the streets
