It's a Saints Superbeauxl!

UPDATE: Watching the Saints win Super Bowl XLIV was an unbelievable experience. I couldn't be happier for NOLA and the Saints. Just about everyone I know, regardless of where they are from was cheering for the Saints on Sunday. I heard from friends who went to the French Quarter after the game that it was like being in the height of the action during a heavily attended Mardi Gras. I hope this is a sign that the city will see a big influx of visitors from all over for the rest of carnival season.

This weekend couldn't have ended on a higher note. After four tight quarters that ended in a 28-28 tie, the New Orleans Saints won the NFC championship game in overtime, securing their spot at Superbowl XLIV. I have to admit that after more than 40 years without a trip to the big game even I had my doubts that this day would ever come for New Orleans. Big ups to the Saints and NOLA, it's great to see them both finally get their well earned moment in the sun.

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted new work. I've been shooting regularly, but a freelance job I'm wrapping up has been occupying a great deal of my time. I'll be posting new photos as soon as I finish with this project. Thanks to everyone who has been following my blog lately, I really appreciate the fact that you take the time to view and comment on my work.

I'm recommending the Hope For Haiti Now album for a few reasons, the most important of which is the fact that 100 percent of the proceeds go directly toward funding the Haiti relief effort. The album is only $7.99, and for those of us who are pretty cash strapped right now it's a great way to make a donation that we can be confident will make it to the people of Haiti, even if we have to use the iTunes gift cards we got for Christmas to do it.
