A Whole Lot Of Music Going On


Mardi Gras parade season.

We come for all sorts of reason. Some like the excitement. Some like the floats. Some come for the throws. I come for the music. I come for the marching bands. Of course, I photograph anything that moves. But, it is the bands that move me the most.

In the past, I use to publish images day by day. Parade by parade. That’s one way to organize pictures. These days, I publish by category. Today, the pictures are all about music. Heh! As if you couldn’t tell. Today is also a day off from the parades because nobody rolls on Monday. I may make my way down to the French Quarter and photograph the silliness there. We’ll see.

We also have to go grocery shopping, or make groceries as they use to say around here. I say “use to” because I haven’t heard that phrase in many years. Anyway, after yesterday’s brunch we are all out of food. We have some king cake, which is fine for breakfast this time of year. But, all cake and sugar does not make Jack a happy boy.

Happy Mardi Gras.

All smiles.

  1. The header photo is slightly reminiscent of another one you published a few years back, with a reflection in it. It was inspiring to me, and so is this one. Are the reflections something you are thinking about as you snap, or a happy accident? Sorry if this is a dumb question – you know that I don’t know nuthin’ about photography (yet).

    1. There are no accidents. That’s what they taught me in design school. I don’t really think about anything when I work. I review what I could see and then do a zen-thing to get into a zone and completely empty my head (THAT isn’t hard to do). Then, I just react. It’s not a dumb question. As a wise editor once said, “there are no dumb questions, only dumb answers) But, my way of preparing and working may not end up being your way. Yet.
