Weekly Winners {The “My blog has been waiting for this moment its whole life” Edition}

My blog has been waiting for me to return to New Orleans. She’s been ever-so patient, too.

Back when Katrina hit, I blogged extensively about my feelings for what happened and what people were going through. It’s ironic that I’m in New Orleans this weekend, on a sponsored trip, one that is essentially a hope mission.

There are still people feeling the affects of Katrina. And there are always people whose stories should be told.  There’s always hope to give and receive.  I look forward to being able to share stories and images—from this weekend—that has already been filled with Loads of Hope.

For now, though.. Here’s a bit of The French Quarter, through my lens:

    You’re making me jealous. It’s been years since I’ve been to NOLA. I think a trip is order. These shots are fantastic, and only the New Orleans you can envision.

    I have been wanting to visit New Orleans for years, ever since I read The Witching Hour series… it sounded like such a fascinating city! These pictures just make me want to visit it even more! It might be tougher now that I am back in Europe, but I’ll get there one day :-)

  24. 12.13.2009

    I’ve never been there, but it seems like a great place to visit… and I’ve wondered how the city has recovered since Katrina. Great shots. They feel somehow… lonely. There’s a real sense of age with your photos–you know the city’s been there for a while.

  25. 12.13.2009

    I don’t know if I ever told you or not, but Pickles my working dog for the deaf is a Katrina survivor. She was abandoned as a pup and spent a year after being passed from one shelter to another until the agency I obtained her from found her. (Hugs)Indigo

  26. 12.13.2009

    Incredible. I have no words, Mishi.

  27. *sigh*

    simply incredible. I cannot wait to hear all about the powerful experience.

  29. 12.14.2009

    NO is one of my favorite places! I’ve been many times, but not since Katrina. Your shots are wonderful. You’ve captured it looking very French- which is so appropriate!

  30. Jana
