About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 42 2/11/2011

Mardi Gras decorations
It's Mardi Gras season in Mobile, Alabama, and every where you look you see decorations in the majestic green, purple, and gold colors.  Today at lunch, Atlanta Bread Co. had each post on their porch adorned with colorful bows and streamers in these festive colors.


  1. I hate Mardi Gras ... hate the decorations, hate the drinking, hate the garbage ... the only thing I like are the parades--every 10 years. :)

  2. Laura, I'm not a fan of Mardi Gras either. Like you, I don't care for all of the drunkeness and the junk, but I do think that some of the decorations are pretty. I don't think I've been to a parade in 10 years myself. I hate fighting the crowds just for a few pieces of candy and a moon pie. lol

  3. I like the way you angled the brick behind the pole.
