Vivid – Weekly Photo Challenge

imageIn response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Vivid.”

Quintessential NOLA! I didn’t have to look very far for VIVID images.  On a recent trip to New Orleans, LA  color was around every corner. The traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold were not chosen arbitrarily. Rex, the King of Carnival, selected this scheme in 1892, declaring purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power.
