Writing with Light

Along the Mississippi

I’ve always wanted to aimlessly drift along the Mississippi river on a steam boat with a large paddle wheel on the back like in the musical Show Boat. (there’s my love for musical theatre shining through again πŸ™‚ ) Arriving back in New Orleans from a week at sea I ran up on deck to capture on last shot if this mighty river at sunrise.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  1. Very lovely shot, Edith! Love the composition and soft lighting.

    I attempted to board a paddle boat when last in NOLA but could not get on that evening because the boat was fully loaded. Disappointed… had to settle for a nice on-land seafood meal. πŸ™‚

  2. Amazing shot, especially considering the boat would have been moving and the light was very low. Great job!
