Greetings from Mardi Gras! I arrived in New Orleans early this week and had just a few days to catch my breath before jumping headfirst in Mardi madness. I visited my sister’s classroom to make a presentation about celebrations around the world to her students, but otherwise barely left her house! Good thing I have plenty of time left to explore The Big Easy.
We kicked off festival celebrations on Thursday night and it’s been a swirl of purple green and yellow ever since. Capturing the spectacle that is Mardi Gras on camera has been a huge challenge for me (event photography is always my biggest struggle), so I’m glad I still have three more days to go!
Happy Mardi Gras, ya’ll!
