I am a pretty fair photographer. In 2000-2001 I had a Website entitled "Mardi Gras 2000" which featured 1000 photos EACH year of the Mardi Gras season. I usually snapped about 500 on Mardi Gras Day. The server went bust and I have never tried to find another. But I can turn the photos into video footage and post them, probably on NOLA.com or Vimeo.
I am slowly turning the best photos into a series (probably 10 chapters) using "Ken Brown" type video style. The photos are all PG rated. There are plenty of "Girls Gone Wild" sources for Bourbon Street foolishness online and very little real Mardi Gras images. My photos feature REAL Mardi Gras stuff that locals do, not the "fratboy/midwesterners gone wild" stuff that highlights a pretty narrow view of what goes on down here. Lots of costumes, parades, and people-watching photos. No flashing on Bourbon Street.
I guess I would post such a thing in FOO, as there is no way to work in bicycles at all.
