Saturday in New Orleans was pouring rain. We headed over to Canal Street for the party and I decided not to take my camera. For one, it was pouring rain and I did not think it would make for very good photos. We were thinking to attend the party for a while, and then leave before the parade started as we did not want to get hung up in the rain for 4 hours. One of these days, I think I will have to invest in a pocket point and shoot for those times I don't want to drag around the Nikon D90, but I did have my iPhone. I was amazed at the beautiful architectural detail in the house.
