New Orleans the night before

Got to New Orleans our first day of vacation to board the Norwegian Spirit for a cruise to Belize (longest distance) with several other stops. Didn't realize it was the not only the beginnings of Mardi Gras but the day before the Super Bowl with the Saints playing. More of the vacation to come. New Orleans is definately the party city with Bourbon Street at the center. All shots are hand held but I did lean on a couple of buildings to steady me a little.

If anything says Mardi Gras I think the mask does it best.

Where else should the party begin?

Early evening on Bourbon Street.

This looks like a serious balcony overload.

This was one really strange little shop.

Street drummer just a block off Bourbon Street.

Really ready for Mardi Gras.

All alone in a city of parties. He looked like he was lost to all without a single friend.

Can't remember the name of this church but it was impressive. Hand held shot at about 8:00 PM. Cloudy sky with the city lights making it look a dusty rose color.

Did the movie or the restraunt come first?

This parade started at around 9:00 in the evening. The girl in the yellow head dress literaly parted my hair with a couple of strings of beads a couple of shots later. Hazards of shooting with one eye closed.

More from the same parade. Blocked us from getting to our hotel for almost an hour.

Most of the floats had people throwing strings of beads but for some reason this one did not.

Most of the floats were a fairy tale theme.
