Lucky enough to get the chance to photograph a crop duster in Belzoni, Mississippi while heading to the Jackson MS Airport. The weather was not looking good so I was surprised to see some out. I just love the sound of their engines, the high pitch hum right before they come into view above the tree tops.

Amazing spring weather in New Orleans for this wedding at the House of Blues. The bride & groom second lined right after the ceremony in the Voodoo Garden to the Parish for the wedding reception.

Hundreds of people and possibly hundreds of tripods,early morning sunrise,traffic. Name three things I normally dislike. However this was my first time seeing the Cherry Blossoms in bloom in Washington DC around the tidal basin. Amazing how many people get out to see this! Instead of focusing on the blooms I found it way more interesting to focus on the people,the amateur and professional photographers, the rows of tripods, the daily joggers, the clearly annoyed cyclists, the business travelers in flight, the folks going to work attempting to avoid the tourists.

Little behind on a Monochrome post this week. I was photographing a convention in New Orleans at the Roosevelt Hotel and when I saw this image from across the room all I could think of was “Moon Over Bourbon St”. The lighting was just right.

“There’s a moon over Bourbon Street tonight
I see faces as they pass beneath the pale lamplight
I’ve no choice but to follow that call
The bright lights, the people, and the moon and all
I pray everyday to be strong
For I know what I do must be wrong
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street” – Sting

Exciting to see the Pittsburgh Penguins win 15th in a row and another shut out! The Penguins throwback jerseys had me thinking of the old black and white NHL hockey images – even if the Pens are not that old.
