    The Triumph of New Orleans

    This past weekend I had the pleasure of reuniting with my mother, whom I hadn't seen in over a year, in the magical city of New Orleans. As we strolled through the historic streets on a foggy Sunday morning, I couldn't help but catch my breath when I stood between the Mississippi River and Jackson Square. I believe this photo encapsulates the city in all its grandeur - the grayness illustrating the dark times NOLA has endured and the triumphant spirit it embodies to overcome even the most traumatic events.
