Photo 300: I debated, and debated, and debated what my 300th picture should be, and picked this one from my trip to New Orleans a few months ago. I've been wanting to post it, and I wandered around NYC today to get my newest photograph, but nothing struck me quite like this one from the Big Easy. This was the first time I've been back post-Katrina, and it was eye-opening and a bit sad to see that this once gorgeous area hasn't yet recovered fully. The French Quarter has been cleaned up of course, but I remember the surrounding areas to be lush, and beautiful, but after taking a drive to the countryside, it wasn't like that anymore. More to come from this trip, but it's my 300th picture, people!
