Photo Friday - Shiny
Outside of the Gulf Coast most people don't know that New Orleans was not the originator of Mardi Gras celebrations. It actually originated inMobile Alabama and quickly migrated to Pensacola Florida before making it to New Orleans. This week's Photo Friday theme reminded me of one of last year's Mardi Gras parades in downtown Pensacola. This person was one of several similarly dressed individuals on the "Masquerades" float. What caught my eye the first time were the masks they wore. However, the costumes (see Photo Friday - Costumes) they wore were quite elaborate and shiny.
