Is it Friday again? Well… Michelle Weber challenged us to show images that evoke joy… that are jubilant! Michelle provided a shot of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I can relate. Having lived in New Orleans I can tell you there is nothing more fun that participating in or watching a good Mardi Gras parade. A good time is had by all. This made me reflect on a piece of serendipity I had a few years ago when a friend and I went to Sutter Creek, California to hear a Christmas concert. We didn’t know that the concert was on the same night as the town’s annual Winter/Christmas parade. Let me tell you… a good time was had by all. Here are a few shots that express small town joy.
