One of my best friends, Ann Kelley, loves New Orleans, and had been asking me to take her with me the next time I went to visit my sister Nicole.

Day 1…

•Long drive, with Ann asleep most of the way.

•Arrived at 10 pm; had pizza from Italian Pie with garlic instead of cheese.

Day 2…

•Helped Nicole finish moving into her new rent house.

•Shot at pink painted rail bridge and City Park, B&W and color.

Day 3…

•Lunch of French Fries Po Boy at Weavers.

•Drove to Grand Isle State Park, which was nearly deserted due to approach of Tropical Storm Allison. The beach was stormy and warm. We saw many fishing vessels and villages along the way.

Day 4…

•Rain, heavy at times, all day, so it was museum day. At the Museum of Modern Art, Ann was so mesmerized by the paintings that we left her there and went to the D-Day Museum, since this was D-Day. Didn’t shoot much, but found it all very interesting.
