    Road trip 2009

    last friday we packed up and headed south, drove down to New Orleans, with a stop in Jackson, MS on the way down, and Memphis on the way up. A few other stops as well, but those were the main ones.

    A few random photos, will try to keep them places together. I facebooked most of these, but thought I'd share here.

    We had an awesome time, loved New Orleans. My 8 yr old is ready to move down there, and dh is close behind. Loved Jackson, too. We were there on Easter Sunday, and wandered around the Farish Historical District, which is still pretty much cleaned out from Katrina. The shells of the buildings, combined with the fact that we were the only ones there, made for a pretty neat morning.

    Ended up in Memphis on a Wednesday, and Wednesday nights are "Bikes on Beale", hundreds and hundreds of motercycles. Our hotel was right around the corner, so we could hear the music and see the lights from our window all night. Neato.

    Some photos...

    the hotel just outside of Jackson...

    Inspiration

    Those are nice. They give me some ideas, in particular the more abstrct ones like the light fittings. When I'm on a trip I'm not usually laid back enough to notice that sort of thing.

    Because - at the end of next week it's my turn to go out on the road. I have a circuit booked around Andalacia (Spain) with the Feria in Seville in the middle.

    Definitly not the usual tourist photos ,Adina.
    One can tell when someone has an eye for photography.
    I like many of the shots for their composition and exposure.

    Aren't motorcycles vehicles?

    thanks!

    Some of these are from the 20d, some from our old digital Elph, and I have a few on my phone, I think...

    I'm probably road tripping again over the 4th of July, by myself. Specifically a photo trip, as I don't like to hold everyone else up while we are out. They are pretty patient with me, but dh is always concerned I'm going to get run over as I'm crouched down in the middle of the road.

    Very nice shots. I was in N.O. years ago and would love to go back - great place to shoot.

    Great shots Adina, thanks for sharing them. I too would love to get back to New Orleans, absolutely love those hidden courtyards in the French Quarter.

    Great series of travel snaps. I can't imagine going to new places without a camera. Your skill and imagination sure comes through on several of these. I first saw them in the gallery and had to scurry over here to comment. Great job! Glad you and the family had a good time.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    thanks all.

    we try to take a trip with the kids every spring. they travel really well, and it gives them the opportunity to see new things.
