Tomorrow is Joe Cain Day in Mobile, which usually finds me in downtown Mobile, shooting photos of the event. When it comes to Mardi Gras, Joe Cain Day is uniquely "Mobile," and as such, it's my favorite part of the Mardi Gras season. King cake? Not so much. I haven't tasted one yet that I liked, but I'm still looking.

INFO
A Mardi Gras King Cake with a plastic baby is pictured with purple and green Mardi Gras beads, March 12, 2014, in Mobile, Alabama. The king cake is traditionally made of fried or baked dough, topped with green, purple, and gold icing or sugar. Modern king cakes sometimes contain fillings such as raspberry, strawberry, cream cheese, or cinnamon. The king cake represents the three kings who visited the Christ child on Epiphany, and the cake usually includes a small plastic baby inside to represent the Christ child. French settlers held the first Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama in 1703. Mardi Gras is a season of revelry that extends from Epiphany, 12 days after Christmas, to Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. (Photo by Carmen K.

When I rescued Pumpkin from the streets in November 2014, she was just a little thing — barely a month old. Since then, she has grown to be a fiercely independent, spitfire. Today, we saw a bluebird, so spring is sure to be close behind. Right? We're keeping our paws crossed.

Pumpkin, a one-year-old calico kitten, looks out a window, January 28, 2016, in Coden, Alabama. Calico cats, also known as tricolors, are usually female. Only one in every 3,000 calico cats is male, and they are usually sterile or suffer genetic defects. Calico cats have been the subject of many legends because of their striking coat color. Japanese fishermen kept them on their boats to protect them from storms and jealous ancestors, and Irish folklore suggests that warts may be cured by rubbing the wart against a calico cat’s tail in the month of May.

Happy to find this group. I live on the Gulf Coast and try to shoot the sunrise or sunset (or both) every day. This is the image I shot this evening in Bayou La Batre, Alabama.

Trying something a little different, working with slow shutter speeds to show the power of the Gulf of Mexico.
