Super Sunday 2013

If you know me or have been following my work for any amount of time, you know that Super Sunday is one of my favorite, if not my very favorite, event of the year.  The tribes, the chants, the suits, the colors, the culture, the music, the food, the people...there's just something special and beautiful about it, and it's completely unique to New Orleans.  

It was a great day, even if it was a little warm.  To top it all off we had the best crawfish of the season over at a buddy's boil afterwards.  Sometimes New Orleans just can't be beat.  This was one of those days.  

I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Hit play and enjoy.

[Forgive me for lack of tribe names...I tried to keep up, but my memory is pretty horrible.  If you have any info on the tribes or indians, please let me know.  It will be greatly appreciated and I can give these artists the recognition they deserve.]

Some of the best trained horses in the world, no question.  

I love the 3D pop the 50mm 1.4 gives me.  My favorite lens by far.  

Yes, you can touch.

Riki had my old status.  

Love this picture.

These pictures do not do justice to how elaborate these suits are.  They are pieces of art that should hang in museums.  

Wipe down.  These suits are heavy, and hot.

"I love your face..."
"I love my face too!"

Is this kid not Jay-Z?

After trying his hardest not to crack a smile, his mother intervened, "Smile for the man!"

Kid's got moves.  They all do.

Time for some crawfish!
