New Orleans Daily Photo is 100!

This is the 100th daily photo post on New Orleans Daily Photo!

When I started this back in April, 100 seemed like an unachievable goal. But the effort has been fun. It has forced me to look at my city in new and different ways. It has made me keep my eyes open and be observant about what is around me. It has made me, many times, do research on a particular subject of my lens.

I thank all the people who have visited and left words of encouragement. I am sure I would have abandoned this long ago with out your spurring me on.

I was looking for the perfect photo to mark the occasion. I thought it ought to have a lot of excitement and frivolity to it. Finally, I keyed in on putting up a Mardi Gras picture. I looked through them all and I came up with these two. The top is my wife, Linda, from a Mardi Gras a couple years ago. Below is my sister, Sue, from a St. Patrick's Day parade -- she beams with excitement from her "catch."

That's the true spirit of this blog. Every photo, every day is a "catch." For the Mardi Gras bead or trinket, it's not the monetary value that earns it the moniker "treasure." It's that fact that it represents the feeling of being involved, surrounded by familiar excitements, full of the shared traditions.

I'm enjoying sharing this parade of photos with you of my beloved New Orleans. I'm enjoying sharing these "catches," egged on by your "throw me something mister's."

thanks

Great photos! There's a lot of gaiety coming through. Did you don make up or any kind of costume yourself? :)

Well done on your 100th photograph!

100 today! Great stuff. I really enjoy your photos - first they are of a city I so wish I'd visited before the levees broke but also because you post such super photographs and interesting and positive commentaries.

I agree with all you've written - I too see my city differently since photograph it. That's a treat isn't it? We are lucky.

Well done - on to the next 100!

You wife could serve as an image of Pan, the Greek god (green, music, vitality).

Congratulations on hanging in there and bringing NO and BR to all us bloggers.

Steve, your commentary is so thoughtful and right on the mark!! Great! Your interest in your beloved city shines through your photos and your commentary. I'm looking forward to the next 100; before you know it, it'll be 365!! Snap on!!

I have really enjoyed your blog and bookmarked it early on. I know what you mean about researching stuff. One hates to comment without all the facts and it's fun to educate people about our cities. We haven't made 100 yet with our Austin effort, but we will keep on going, I think. And we feel quite a kinship with New Orleans here in Texas. We are sad that many people didn't get to go back, but have a half dozen new friends from NO of late, too. Keep up the good work of being an ambassador for your city.

Heres to more of your work! A rich mix of celebrations there. I read you about cars and floods, and yet still 'resurfacing' there, we watched the cities problems at that time with anguish.
