Eunice Courir de Mardi Gras, Downtown Eunice, Feb. 28, 2017
The Eunice Courir de Mardi Gras paraded through Downtown Eunice starting about 3:30 p.m. Feb. 28, 2017, after riding through the countryside since mid-morning. For most of the day, I had been a Mardi Gras in the Faquetigue run, so I was definitely tired by the time I mounted a small step ladder behind the row of spectators to try to get shots of the Eunice courir. As I held my camera, I somehow managed to jiggle the lens shade loose so that it blocked the upper right edge of most photos, forcing me to crop out that area in post processing. Also, I really needed a taller ladder to get a better view.
