Held Hostage By Bacchus

Fitting that for so many years I allowed myself to be a prisoner of alcohol and tonight I was literally a captive of Bacchus (the Roman god of wine and intoxication). I was on my way home and couldn't cross St. Charles or Napoleon because of the Bacchus parade. I always enjoy it, so I wasn't too disappointed about being stuck. Was hoping to see Will Ferrell though. He was king this year.

I've been talking alot about Mardi Gras, but I haven't been taking many pictures. Here's a link to a page on my photography website. It's a very small gallery from last years parades and some pics I took around town.

Not the shutterbug I used to be. I used to concentrate more on taking pictures than actually enjoying the moment and connecting with the ones I love. I decided a while back that if something trivial started getting in the way of what was really important, I'd cut waaaay back on it. Facebook, Doctor Who, video games... You get the idea.

Bout to eat a late dinner then go to bed. Have a great night and God bless!

  1. I checked out your photo album and you do take really beautiful photos!

    I love heading out on my so called photo walks and really miss those walks... the winter half year in Sweden is so incredibly dull, dark and cold - not at all inspirational for a photo walk. But soon spring will arrive and I'll be heading out again. This time using my iPhone 4S... oh I can't wait :-)

    If you're curious, my photo album can be found here:
