Scary shadows at night!



Check out this crazy art exhibit. Yes...those are grills.

Bloody Marys & Mojitos!! Sounds like a great time. :) Do you sell your art somewhere online or just in person?

Great pics! I'm super jealous of your trip!

The pics of the grills or "grillz" are hotttt. Nothing does it for me like a sweet, gold grill.

All I can say is WOW. I've lived here all my life and have never seen New Orleans captured in such beautiful pictures! Those are absolutely amazing!!! Wish you weren't going so far away, I'd get you to take some pics of Baby when it gets here!

Oh, I never made it to get my beignets today... but it's on my to-do list the week!

Love the photos! The one of the cathedral and fountain was my favorite. Me roommate is trying to convince to go to New Orleans for our senior trip, but we went to New Orleans together last year. Seeing those photos makes me want to go back.
