Festival International de Louisiane

I know I mentioned how busy things have been in the last post that was all the way back around Mardi Gras... but whew - do I underestimate how much goes on in the spring. Best time of the year and the time of year that my most anticipated event rolls around, Festival International de Louisiane. I was a bit unsure how this year would turn out- but it ended up being one of the best! Hard to pic a favorite performer this year!

Here's a link to the gallery on The Independent of Lafayette's site.

Busy busy busy

It's good to be busy. But it's no fun when busy means no time for photos! BUT with the new year come s Mardi Gras and that of course provide plenty to photograph! I took a ton of photos which were carefully picked through and the favorites made it up on the flickr page. Spring is less than a week away and there is Festival International to look forward too. The best time of year!

Sharing Mardi Gras with Postcrossers

It is the middle of the Mardi Gras season right now. There have been balls and masquerades and parades with more to come. I have been on the look out for a suitable Mardi Gras post card to send to fellow Postcrossers, but just haven't been able to find what I'm looking for, so of course I had to create my own. A few years ago, I shot some parade stock footage and went off of that for the artwork. It was a pretty Mardi Gras day and masked king's men were tossing plenty of beads out to the crowds. I got a printed copy in today and was pleased. Now time to go get some colorful stamps and send a couple off!

These are for sale here on Zazzle.
