Week 5 – Joy


Anna Maria, Florida Sunset

The Holidays are upon us and with all the hurry and flurry of the season, I find it an important time to pause and take in moments of joy.  For me, that would be sunsets on the quiet beaches of Anna Maria.  It’s the best gift I can give myself!

Joy exists in the ordinary.

French Quarter … Little Bit of Everything


French Quarter, New Orleans.

Often times, the side streets of the French Quarter can be as interesting as Bourbon Street, with all its jazz and funky characters.  Being Halloween weekend, there was no lack of interesting characters on the streets, but I specifically liked the composition of the image above and waited for just the right folks to walk by.

Later on, we encountered this large parade of Arizona Cardinal fans who were rallying support for their upcoming game with New Orleans, whom they lost to … 31-9.


Even the dogs are becoming street performances nowadays!  I don’t know how long this dog stayed in this position, but while we watched him, he didn’t flinch a bit … not even when his owner presented him a small treat, eating it while still in the same position!


Hope you enjoyed … until next time.
