Always love watchin Monk come out on Mardi Gras Day, Sooooo Pretty!!! singin “Indian Red” to the masses in front of his house. As usual we all proceeded with Monk to Second and Dryades where we met up with the multitudes of Mardi Gras Indians that had converged there all afternoon. After a couple hrs of dancin in the streets and checkin out all the pretty Big Chiefs meeting up, we started the trek back, led by Rueben a couple blocks ahead......Monk treated us to a wicked version of “Shotgun Joe” on the way back home.....We arrived back at Monks to the sweet smokey aromas in the air and feasted on Monks killer bbq! All on Mardi Gras Day as they say.....wouldn't have it any other way! Enjoy the pix!! ;-) for addition to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Art Collection for permanent display/exhibition in the brand new George and Joyce Wein Jazz and Heritage Center. The Grand Opening is for the center located at 1225 N. Rampart Street is Friday December 12th. In a city that has a plethora a talented and gifted photographers,  I am truly honored and grateful to have one of my pieces selected for display in the  newly remodeled center. Big thanks to the NOJHF for choosing one of my pieces for this special exhibit, and of course to my friends Second Chief Joseph Boudreaux,  Big Chief Monk Boudreaux and the rest of the Golden Eagle Mardi Gras Indians for constantly inspiring me to produce timeless images with their pretty pretty suits year after year!  Jerry ;-)
