The random thoughts of an architect-turned- lawyer from the deep south living in Washington, DC...

A morning after

Taking a break from paper-writing this morning, I decided to check out the Nola cameras. Even as a child, I was always fascinated by the "day after" effect of an evening of Mardi Gras revelry. Once the streets clear, you are able to notice the immense amounts of trash and beads littered everywhere. When you are partying, you just don't notice (unless you step in it). I am also always amazed that there are people out and about so early the next morning.

Admittedly, some have not been home just yet.

On the ParadeCam, I noticed this hard-core reveler.

Note the time. It is 6:40 in the morning and this guy has set up his ladder, chairs and even his tent. This is a gentleman you do not want to stand in front of for beads. He means business.

On the BurboCam, I noticed a couple of folks doing the walk-o-shame.

(Come on, don't act like you have no clue what I am talking about;-) She sure is smiling big. Maybe she is still drunk. Or, maybe she had a memorable evening. Perhaps she knows Michigan here and the look on her face is one of recognition.

OOORRRR, she knows where the BurboCam is located and she is a girl on a mission.


If you wanna play Mardi Gras, check out the cameras.
