Beans, beans, beans,
Beans, beans, beans.

Lundy Gras. The Monday before Mardi Gras Day. Or Fat Tuesday, If you wish.

Forgive me. I’m keeping this very short because I had to go to work by about 6am today. Forgive me too because I haven’t even looked at very many emails or comments. It’s been very, very busy around here. But, not crazy. I’m pretty methodical. Except when it comes to the parking situation. Then any sort of method is impossible. Heh!


There were three parades on Monday in New Orleans. Red Beans in the Bywater. Proteus and Orpheus in Uptown. I managed to photograph them all. Short day though. Only 11 hours and over 6 miles walking.

So. That’s it. Ask me questions about the pictures if you’d like. I’m happy to answer. In a couple of days. And, if you are wondering. The bottom picture that is captioned very simply “Mardi Gras,” is my best picture of Carnival Season so far. It says everything it needs to say about Mardi Gras. It is all that it should be.

Mardi Gras.
Mardi Gras.

  1. Some of these pictures make me really miss the energy of marching, playing an instrument in parades. (Years ago, I marched Bari Sax.) Up here in New England, playing in such a parade is painful this time of year (but still, somehow, satisfying). It’s been nearly 20 years since I’ve done it. I’m really not sure what to do with that “missing it” feeling, but I’m glad you can provoke it so well, and capture its energy visually.


  2. Where are you going in SoCal? Even though I was born in Brooklyn, I was raised in Long Beach, CA. Not, Long Island. 🙂 I had a very good time. However, until some construction is complete somewhere in the city, I can say with 95% certainty that we won’t be in NOLA for Carnival 2017. That may be time for a two week vacation. Travel safe.
