We ordered it while in The Soda Shop if you’re interested.
Joe and I went to The National WWII Museum while visiting New Orleans. We had been before on our honeymoon, but now it’s bigger than ever.
If you ever get a chance to go, please don’t leave town without visiting this museum. We’ve been twice, and still have not seen everything. And the Pacific wing will open this year sometime.
I love this photo. The reflections of the WWII soldiers in the window superimposed on the visitors is haunting to me. I jumped back when I saw them. I had no idea they were there when I shot the photo.
We all came to learn from and pay homage to the greatest generation in this museum. Their presence was even greater it seems looking at this photo.
Since Alabama was in the Sugar Bowl this year (football to those who don’t follow college sports) Joe and I went to New Orleans to watch the game. It just happened to coincide with New Year’s Eve in the French Quarter.
One of the best New Year’s Eve’s I’ve ever experienced. We just happened to be under the Fleur de lis at the countdown – followed by a huge fireworks display over the river.
These were a couple of partiers we passed as we made our way back to our car.
A side note: We sat in the parking lot for and hour and a half before we could get moving. Gridlock! After traveling all day to New Orleans, we got to our hotel and in bed at 4:00 a.m.
Yes! It was a good year.
We have a New Orleans-type restaurant here in town called Blue Orleans. It was not open yet when I walked by this afternoon, but I happened to see all of these keys hanging on the inside of the door. I thought that was very unusual, so I decided to make it my snapshot of the day. My finger hit the shutter harder than I wanted to and got the photo before I was able to change the f-stop. I wanted to make the background a little more out of focus so the keys would stand out. But it didn’t work out that way; and since I can only take one shot, this is what I got. Thank heavens for PhotoShop. I was able to blur the background a bit and use the history brush to bring the keys back into focus. Not the greatest job, but it will do in a pinch. As usual, I had very little time today.
