The last time I was in New Orleans was right before the city was ravaged by the flood in 2005. Where does the time go to? It sure doesn’t seem like that was 7 years ago, but it was. I remember because this was one of the rare road trips I was able to take my beautiful wife along with me. She came along because I was receiving my Cr. Photog degree from the PPA, and it was a very special occasion. It wouldn’t have had near the significance if she wasn’t there to share the festivities with me!
We became huge fans of Cafe Du Monde for their “breakfast of champions” well probably not, but very delicious cafe au lait and beignet. (Just think calories and sugar, you’ll understand) One morning it was dreary and overcast, but that didn’t stop us. While we were there I decided to take a quick little photo using the available light I had and am really glad I did. This image has hung in our kitchen by our “coffee station” since we got back. It has moved from Ohio, to our current house and will still be displayed when we move into our new place in March. Here’s proof that the best camera is the one you have with you. In this case a Fuji Fine Pix that gave me about a 2 MG file that we printed to about a 10″x20″ print, custom mat and framed and it looks fantastic!
This road trip we will miss our good friend and brother Terry Wyatt. He has been faithfully standing by his mama that has been on a respirator for the last few days. This story would take too long to tell in a way that would give Terry props for all he has done as a son and caregiver for his mom for decades. I would like to ask you to join me in praying for them, that they will be strengthened and encouraged and find their peace and hope in Christ alone during this time. We’ll miss having you with us Terry, but will be praying for you without ceasing.
