|This page illustrates a trip that I made with my friend Brenda in February 2004. I had previously visited Louisiana in 1997. This page concentrates on the pre-Mardi Gras Carnival parades. Parades start in early January; by the week before Mardi Gras day, two or three happen each day in the New Orleans area. The weeks before Mardi Gras have a family atmosphere and can be a good time to go.|
|These photos show the situation before Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.|
|This page shows a snapshot of the area 18 months before the destruction of Hurricane Katrina.|
|The Gulf shore and Mississipppi delta are great areas for photography.

|This is the time for every marching band to show its stuff. The bands mostly consist of black high-school boys in military costumes. They are preceded and followed by groups of gyrating female cheerleaders in costumes that seem generally designed for someone far more mature.|
