Photog's son, Adolfo, under the shade of Panderina's umbrella

The Mardi Gras Parade

While Blanc et Noir brought a lot of neat umbrellas to the Krewe of Highland Parade, the one that catches my eye over and over was made by Panderina Soumas. It was simple but highly effective in its eye-catchingness.

Talbot, banner maker, was responsible for a lot of the small color-panel umbrellas. She brought numerous extras to the parade and passed them out. She even had enough left over to give to the mayor and his wife as they sat baking in the sun in the Caddy convertible.
