Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment
Regards To New Orleans
Our next Picture This! assignment is "Regards to New Orleans." We all hope and pray that one of the most exciting cities in the world will be back on its feet soon and that the people who suffered through the tragedy will have a better tomorrow. Our hearts, and our support go out to all the people of that great city. Our Picture This! assignment is for pictures of the city in days previous to Katrina, to remind us all of its amazing diversity, culture, and joie de vivre. This photo of a Mardi Gras prop was made inside Blaine Kern's Mardi Gras World in Algiers, just across the river from the French Quarter, one of our favorite locations for photography. It was made in January 2005 with a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II set at ISO 1600.
