I got a new lens today (a fixed 50mm F1.4!) so had a chance to play with it a bit before heading out for my New Orleans trip. Where I now live in the Columbia City neighborhood of Seattle is only a few blocks off the light rail so I walked over to catch it to the airport. It was an easy, quick, and stress-free ride there and, fortunately, in the skies from Seattle through Denver and finally to New Orleans.
I met up with Connie at our hotel but we set out straight away to get a drink at the chill, dark Bar Tonique where we had a couple fantastic drinks. Not a bad way to start our first night in NOLA!
