Week 52 – #A4 – Photographer’s Choice

My choice for this theme are signs of New Orleans.  Each gives you a feel for the vibe of this place. I decided since this is the last post for this 52 week period, I would end with more than just one.  There are a few here – so enjoy.  A new 52 week Photo blog will be starting August 1, 2017.  I am looking forward to new themes.



Week 47 – #26 Prohibited

For Prohibited, I submit photos of the Sanibel fishing houses, which in some’s view should not exist.  What I mean, is that regulations were passed that said you could not build them, and these could not be sold or could not be rebuilt if anything would happen to them.  And of course, hurricane Charlie happened, and of course, the owners started to rebuild. The resulting lawsuit, resulted in the owners winning because of how the law was written.  The building structure might have been gone but the expense of sinking the pylons was the greatest part and since those still existed, the majority of the value was still there, thus allowing the owners to still maintain these fishing houses and rebuild them.  But the state is watching..






Week 46 – #36 Stitched Together

This theme, I am using just 4 photos of gowns from Leigh Ann Brown’s “Portrait of a Bride, an Evolving Silhouette”  presentation to the Valencia Lakes Women’s Club covering wedding gowns from 1879 to present.  I picked the older gowns as these might not be something you would have seen before.  This was a very well detailed presentation on how women’s fashion changed with the times including the impact of war and financial changes.  Some of these were from a time when you stitched your own gown.

 If you get to see Leigh Ann’s presentation – go, it was something to see.
