Photographer's Note

I was back in New Orleans visiting my family over the Easter break, and we frequently walked the couple of blocks from our house in Metairie to the lakefront. March/April is a wonderful time to visit Louisiana, because the winter chill has left, but oven temperatures haven't yet arrived!

Lake Ponchartrain is separated from Metairie by the levee - a wall of solid 'dirt', covered in grass with a path running along the top. It was built to prevent flooding during storms (which would be quite a disaster given New Orleans is about 6ft below sea level!). Next to the lake there is a bicycle path, which is always in use during daylight hours. There are also benches dotted here and there, on which you can sit and watch the water lapping against the shore.

On this particular day, the temperature would have been slightly too warm, were it not for the cool breeze flowing off the lake. The sun dipped behind a cloud for a moment, splitting the light into ever changing rays.
