The Three Muses Challenge this week was geometric - circles and squares.
I started with a photo I took in Lafayette Cemetery in the Garden District.
In New Orleans, the dead never really leave us. We can go and visit.
They like it when you bring them gifts.
Every time I have been to this particular tomb, someone has always left
little presents for the orphan boys - usually some sort of plastic toys or stuffed animals.
The day I took this image, someone had left this bright and cheerful balloon
as well as the usual assortment of Mardi Gras beads and little toys.
I like to think that after everyone leaves for the day (the gates are locked promptly at 5 pm),
the orphan boys come out and enjoy their new toys!
