Faded Beads

This is another one of those pictures. A picture made on my way to some place else. There are three things to know about it.

Even when rain isn’t falling, dark storm clouds add a large amount of drama to the picture. The light is wonderful.

Mardi Gras beads always fade to silver. Around here, with our extreme weather, they fade very quickly. These could be from this year. In February. Or, they could also be a lot older. I doubt that.

This picture was made in Central City. Look at the colors of the buildings. Amazing. When I say that new Orleans is a third world Caribbean country. I mean it. For better or worse. These paint jobs are for better.
