Mardi Gras N
Wow! We got some GREAT fan mail. What a waste to keep this hidden in my e-mail archives. You folks have been wonderfully generous with the compliments and have made this worth all of our efforts.
I want to tell you that you cannot even imagine how much I love your site. Please don't ever stop posting NO pictures! I am especially thrilled with the large amount that you have posted due to Mardi Gras season. Your site is a godsend.
Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!! I came looking because this weekend I will be making my first trip to Mardi Gras. I am so excited and the anticipation is killing me. The pictures are wonderful!!! I now have a touch of flavor and feel for what I am about to stroll into. I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!!
Hey many thanks. The images are great. I am using them to educate some people about Mardi Gras.
This collection is truly a treasure. Very nice job!!! Am telling all of my friends.
Just wanted to thank you for the GREATEST photos of this year's GREATEST party! I couldn't make it this year and now thanks to you and your lovely assistant I feel that I've been there. Keep up the great work.
I really appreciate your site. Your photos are brilliant and classy. I also truly appreciate finding a site that does not emphasize the nudity. I felt relaxed while I was purusing each photo while at work. I had someone over my shoulder and could for once without fear proudly show what the Mardi Gras was all about. Keep up the good work!
I just finished viewing your site and became extremely nostalgic for MG. This was my first time @ MG. I plan 2 return at every possible opportunity. U hit it on the dot when u said that every type of person can coexist harmoniously. Ive never been privy to such a wonderful experience. I think your photos captured the whole gamut of the MG experience. God Bless Mardi Gras.
This year was my first to Mardi Gras. Your web site, which I just examined from start to finish - Everything, was the most amazing pictorial account showing Mardi Gras - ever. Thank you so much for all the work you put in.
I just had to write and tell you I had more time today to read the info. about why you did this site and surf around a little and it is just great!! "Kudos" to you- for ... doing such a wonderful job-my kids and I sat here tonight and looked at all the pictures ... Keep up the good work!!!!!! I will be back often and my Mom will too-she loves watching people!!!! Thanks a lot for a very uplifting place to visit and I will be back often! ... I am SO impressed- a place where kids and parents can live, learn and experience the people around us.
Man I enjoyed your pictures a s**t load.... Great job & you all keep up the great work... I couldn't make it this year, so you filled me in a it.... THANKS
Hi there...my husband recently wrote to you to commend you on the awesome job you did with MardiGras...but, I felt the need to write you also. You and your wife do the most incredible work I have ever seen...not just with Mardi Gras, but with all of your photos. It is so very impressive to find someone who has a "clean" (no nudity) work and work that is a thousand times better than any other sites we have seen. We love Mardi Gras...we go to Galveston Mardi Gras every year and it is a blast, but nothing compared to New Orleans. We started with your site for Mardi Gras, but have now seen everything and plan to follow your every move. Keep up the awesome work and be sure to pat your wife on the back too!!! Thanks again for all of the beautiful work you do, that we are so fortunate to enjoy.
Hello- this is an excellent site!!!! I have been looking at a lot of Mardi Gras pictures and they are all about flashing- your site is very enjoyable and good pictures without the nudity. Good Job!!!!
On page 73 there's a really cute picture of your wife. Maybe it's the angle, but it's just adorable. I like all the other shots of her, walking down the street or standing next to 7 foot tall drag queens.
Thanx, you gave me the opportunity to see how much I missed on Carnival Day, even though I was right there.
Great big thank you for posting your photos. A group of almost 30 of us traveled to N.O. this year and you captured some of us in your photos. Great quality too!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm back in San Francisco basking in the joy of Mardi Gras only to find your wonderful site brought me right back. I'm very grateful.
Your MG photos are fabulous... You have provided a terrific service for us MG'ers. Thank you ever so much for your photos.
Amazing effort! Thanks for a fun, extremely well-done site.
...I'm glad to have this website to share with people I care about, people I hope will at least learn how to enjoy what New Orleans has to offer. BRAVO, beautiful work! Thanks a million, dawlin!
Awwww...............that's great! YOU deserve it pal....I have put this site down now as one of my FAVORITE PLACE'S!!!!!!!!
Found your site on the MG forum on nola. After several sequences I knew you had to be local because of your eye for what 98% of MG is all about. The other 2% is for the 98% of tourists that come here for the same old s**t. At least they are pretty much contained on Bourbon and leave the rest of the Quarter to us. But what really blew me away was scrolling through the Thoth parade and seeing the best photos of my float I've seen yet. You have a couple of terrific pictures of me throwing on Canal Street... Anyway, thanks for the memorable ride of many of the things I saw and so many I didn't.
I just finished looking at the 999+ photos - the second time. It was a great adventure - via your camera and observant eyes - to attend the Mardi Gras of New Orleans without treading trash, bumping into nice and not-so-nice people and, the same time - while the 'puter played the appropriate music from NOLA Radio - enjoying the beautiful stills. Almost like having been there... I am very grateful to You and to your able and pretty Assistant. JOB WELL DONE!
Many many thanks. Those are far and away the best Mardi Gras pictures I've ever seen. You really have caught the true spirit. Must be a labor of love. Fantastic.
Thanks for sharing your photos. You truly captured the essence of MG. I'm looking forward to future MG's and hope I'll be in one of your photos some day.
Over the course of the last two weeks I have been to almost every Mardi Gras site on the web, by far yours is the best. I waited every day for the updates. Great Site! Keep up the good work!
I have to thank you for what you did here...YOU are a true artist my man!! You really captured 'da flavor of it all!!!! :) you are a hot ticket! considering, hardly any of my pictures came out!! I REALLY appreciate this site!!! Thanks a million from Boston!!!
Fantastic site for those of us who missed Mardi Gras..thank you.
...your site is .OUT OF SIGHT!!!!!!!! Bright.and refreshing!!!!!! Good Job....
You did a fantastic job.
Your site is absolutely terrific. Real New Orleans.
Your assistant is indeed lovely. Thank you for the enjoyable presentations.
I couldn't make it down this year and I certainly appreciate your slices of Mardi Gras for us to share. I went to a Mardi Gras party here in Illinois but it just wasn't even close. Thanks again. Your pictures take me there.
Thanks for going to the effort of providing me the pictures of the Mardi Gras, interesting to one who has never been to New Orleans.
I have never been to Mardi Gras but these pictures make me think that I am looking at my scrap book from the trip. Keep up the good work.
Phat site. Thanks for keeping those of us that couldn't make it in the loop!
One more time...GREAT JOB! 2000 PICTURES NEXT YEAR (please)! If anyone asks me what's Mardi Gras like, now I know the answer. And anyway, if 1 picture is worth 1,000 words then your site is worth a MILLION.
Thanks, that was a great show.
The best site I've seen for Mardi Gras, excellent.
I found it on Monday, and have followed your pictures each day. Thanks you so much for your wonderful site! It was tons of fun to relive Mardi Gras through your pictures (the last time I was there was in 1994). Thank you for all of your time and effort!!
Thanks for the pleasure of letting me see some of your photography work. It was tremendous and most enjoyable. It's not too cold here in Ohio at this time but your photos helped remind me of what is in store for next summer (I hope). Keep up the good work and I will bookmark your page for future pleasure.
I have enjoyed your photos. I rode in Endymion last night and would like to purchase some of your photos... Look forward to hearing from you. Happy Mardi Gras!
You really aim to please. Thanks for the trouble finding the Kingcake. I'll be checking your site in a few minutes. Enjoy all the craziness down there, you've done a great job.
hi...i'm one of the few unlucky ones who has never been to Mardi Gras..and would die to go....i'm only half way through your photos and i wanted to tell you how great they are and thank you for putting them up.....we're having a Mardi Gras party here tonight and this really helped to put me in the right mood...thanks from Tennessee....
You deserve the best! You have not only good equipment but an eye for excellent compositions, too. If you are not yet a professional photographer - you should be... Sincere thanks with anticipation for future postings. Have a great time!!!
You really captured the spirit of Mardi Gras! It's the next best thing to actually being there. Thanks for all the time and trouble to bring the celebration to those of us that were not able to make it there this year!
THIS WEBSITE IS WONDERFUL, I'M REALLY ENJOYING SEEING THE THINGS YOU ARE POSTING. FEEL LIKE I NEED A SLICE OF KING CAKE TO BE LOOKING AT ALL THE CRAZINESS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. I ESPECIALLY LIKE THE COSTUMES AND PARADE FLOATS, SINCE I'M AN ARTIST.
Here's yer friggin bone. Nicely done, sir.
Great pictures! Enjoyed the recap of the weekend!
Well, you (and your lovely assistant) are totally cool.
I thank you for posting these pictures. I know it took long hours to post these which are great and typical of Mardi Gras. I will e-mail my friend in ole England and also my girl friend in Veracruz, Mexico and "axe dem" to download "ur site, so dat dey can see Naw'lins Mardi Gras like it is". Great job man.
Thanks for the photos of Mardi Gras, you covered it all. Great job!
Awesome pics dude...awesome!!!
You did a great job capturing the Mardi Gras I love!
Many of your photos are excellent! Here at NOLA.com we are putting together a Britney Spears section since she's coming for a concert and is a hometown girl. Would you give us permission to use one of your photos of her in the Endymion parade?
Just found out about your site and I'm really glad you did it; it's a wonderful way to show what New Orleanians really do!
You got it, here's your bone for performing a valuable (fun) social service.
This is definitely why there has to be an internet. Thanks.
Thank you so much for doing this photo essay, and putting it up on the internet for everyone to see and share!
Having worked on, in, designed, created, reveled in, rode in, etc...so many different krewes all my life, I have enjoyed the artistic side of the season, and it is wonderful to have your site to point people to in order to safely let them see what Mardi Gras is...and not what it is hyped!
Can't thank you enough for all your hard work and excellent pics - we local folks are delighted to see such a fantastic panorama.
Great job!. You do it for free because nobody could afford to pay you for this kind of a wonderful effort!
I enjoyed your pictures. Much more comprehensive coverage of the non-breast scene than any other site. Thanks.
You captured the day so beautifully. Thank you so much.
