Christmas Eve

An old Cajan/German tradition in St. James Parish is to hold bonfires on the levees Christmas Eve.
Apparently the miles of bonfires (some over 40 ft. tall) are to help Santa find his way to the bayous.
I visited with my housemate Chuck, his Aunt Evie, and Uncle Charlie (pictured below.)

Smart Skin

Descours 2010: part architecture exhibit, part art installation series, part scavenger hunt. Fourteen installations
were hidden around New Orleans this past week. I had the privilege of visiting some of the sites with friends
and a few days later, was randomly hired to photograph each site.

The site entitled "Intense Correlations" created by Gernot Riether (pictured below) was one of my favorites.
