Mardi Gras Season went by in the blink of an eye. This year I worked on the floats more than normal—having the opportunity to do some full size drawings that were mounted to floats. I loved it. My arm may still not be recovered from that deadline just yet, but I loved it. And because of all that I was invited to ride on float number one—The Goddessey. Oh. My. Goddessey. It’s like getting bumped up to first class! I barely finished my shoes this year and only photographed a couple. And the night of the ride was touch and go. Thunder and lightning almost prevented us rolling. But they let us go, so off we went in our busses to our floats—and there were the happy faces of our friends and family who’d been waiting there for us. Once the parade started the rain stopped and all was clear for the rest of the night. The Amusement after-party was one of my favorites yet. Pat Benatar can still hit every note. Just a few more days to go—a few more day parades to go—and Mardi Gras Season will come to an end.
