STL DPP On The Road: New Orleans

I have some law biz here in the Big Easy Monday. Since Mrs. C. is approaching one month from her hip replacement, I thought it would be nice to give her a treat and spend the weekend here. Pure altruism, right? After dinner at the restaurant Iris in the French Quarter (which is fabulous, by the way) we walked around for a bit. Chef Madden was on the street behind his restaurant having a smoke break. The light on him was fabulous. I told him so and asked if I could take his picture. Once again, I am so grateful to Bobbi Lane, the best teacher I've ever had in my life, for teaching me how to approach people like this.

More from NOLA as I wander around this weekend.

WHAT'S TOMORROW? The second anniversary of this blog. Have to do something about that.

Atta boy! In the Big Easy what, a few hours and you've already snagged a street portrait? Have fun and no "knee walking" Bob. Hold it in the road down there!

Hey Bob, stopping by early to wish you a happy 2nd Blogoversary! Your shots are always a treat to view and I love your post format. Just an all around excellent blog with wit and good humor. Cheers!

The windows to the soul. Strange what the absence of eyes does to the human face, especially when accentuated by a large face, bald head, and protruding lower lip.
