Visiting French Quarter Fest
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner
 
Nun of That!
Nun of That!
French Quarter Fest in New Orleans is visited by just about everyone! Including nuns who are seen here next to a mint julep sign. PS, bw, layers, filters, etc.
By the way juleps can be made with and without alcohol. So here is a recipe for Ginger Mint Juleps:
8 oz. ginger ale, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp lime juice, 1 dash bitters garnish (optional-has alcohol in it), served with fresh mint sprig. Also, some people put bourbon in them.

Thanks, Mary Beth. Traditionally, these drinks were/are served very cold in silver cups---tall ones, and some do contain Bourbon or other alcohol...not sure what other types. Lotsa sugar in this though. Cheers, too!

I love this!!! Such a unique and captivating image--a definite winner in my book. Fantastic capture and b&w conversion, KK! By the way, I went to college in New Orleans and in that whole time, I don't think I ever had a mint julep! I did have a few Pimm's cups at the Napoleon House, though. :)

Your photograph of the Nuns is truly a Finalist Winner, but also a tribute to both your skill and N'Awlins. Bet if you donated a print to the Catholic Diocese 'anonymously', 3 Nuns will include you in their prayers that you didn't show their faces! CONGRATULATIONS!

Thanks Evy and Dee! I am having a breather this afternoon from work, so I can be more personal in my replies.
It is thanks to Dee that I have a lot of things, and to you, Dee - a true winner yourself, I send a lot of love and hugs.

Good girl, Sarah!!!! :-) Most do here!
I am on my way in a day out of New Orleans thanks to Gustav which is to become a Category 3 hurricane probably in a few days and likely come close or right on top of our city. This hurricane evacuation stuff is for the birds, but I am ok about it really except for the road rage I got as I neared the totally full drugstore lot to try to get my RX I need before I go. I will try again tomorrow and maybe camp outside til they open..........LOL not really.
Thanks again so much, Sarah, and make a "Sarah julep" for me, too!

HEY K.K.! Just got back home to OKC - had to evac my daughter from Tulane - and saw your big winner! I didn't know you had returned to the Big Easy, but am so happy you did. I was enjoying some vacation time and the spectacle that is Southern Decadence when Gustav spoiled the party (I do not participate in S.D., of course, I don't play for that team:) But Gustav was a surprise none the less. My kid will return to Tulane on Sept. 8th if all goes as planned.

I love this shot - my husband and I had just trekked past that very spot last week! So happy you've garnered yet another well deserved honor. My best to you!!!

Hey Marisol and Terrill! Thanks!

Yes, Terrill, I had planned to drop in on Southern Decadence, but I had to evacuate before that. Talk about a parade worth photographing, but not showing on bp --LOLOL, being rained on! I think missing that photo op upset me the most. Next time you come to New O, and I know you will as your "kid" is in Tulane, give me a heads up. I would love to meet/shoot with you if you have time. My very best to you, too!

A wonderful and well timed shot Kathleen. Everything is just perfect, the dynamic composition, the intriguing subject, the interesting background, the great detail and the excellent tones.

Congratulations on this outstanding image.
