How can you not have fun in New Orleans? My friend asked me that today when I was telling her about my trip to New Orleans to visit my son at Tulane. I have to say that I totally agree with her! There is so much fun to be had there between the music, the culture and the food, that it is difficult to imagine being there without having an enjoyable time. A few weeks ago, several friends and I went down to visit my son and watch his Rugby game. The game turned out to be in Mississippi, so rather than miss the game, we planned a road trip, had a blast and got to enjoy the game. The best part of the trip, besides catching up with my friends who I don’t get to see often enough, was when my son kicked a field goal to win the game for Tulane over USM!! The last image below is of him kicking that field goal. The other photos are of the beautiful buildings in the French Quarter. The architecture is just gorgeous. There is so much to look at and enjoy there, I just can’t help loving that city. I hope my friends will go back with me very soon!
If you’ve read my blog before you know that abstract photos are some of my favorites. So it comes as no surprise that I have some abstracts to share from the spring flowers that are out now. Abstract photos are fun for me to take and interesting to edit. While there is definitely obvious camera movement, I love when the images have some crisp areas as well. All blur can be nice as well, but doesn’t always work for my eye. There are tulips, fothergilla and hydrangea, which haven’t flowered yet, so work well with this technique. Take a look and let me know what you think. 🙂
Do you ever wonder why you don’t get to something even though you enjoy doing it? It seems for me, even though I love taking pictures and editing them, I don’t always take the time to do it. Sometimes life just gets in the way and other times I just can’t get myself outside! Even with all these spring flowers around, I haven’t been photographing them. Spring is my favorite season, mostly I think because of the new color and warming temperatures after the cold, drab winter. I’ve certainly been delinquent in posting anything, but here are a few of the spring flowers around my house. More to come!!!
