Heading back to the hotel where my friend and dinner companion is staying we passed by Harrah's Casino. On the steps of the casino were something between 100 - 200 people dressed in antebellum gowns, with the gentlemen in appropriate attire. Some of the gentlemen were wearing American Civil War era military attire, both Union and Confederate, others were wearing civilian attire. They were posing for a group photograph.
We wandered over, myself thinking this could well be a re-creation club, and discovered they are from a auto sales company in Spain, here on vacation (partially it is a reward for performance thing as well). So I guess last night's event was the costume ball.
I missed getting up early enough for sunrise photography. The crud I started the week with isn't totally gone, and all of you who do cons or ren faires know how much energy that involves. This is much the same thing, and I just couldn't get myself out of bed that early this morning. Tomorrow will be off to home, so today's play will be either to ride the trolley out into the Garden District or walk through the French Quarter and photograph architecture.
First, clean up and a breakfast.
