Although I've been visiting New Orleans since "before the storm," I'd never been to Mardi Gras before. I decided this was the year to do it, since it's also the 300th anniversary of the founding of New Orleans. Thanks to some friends who are Mardi Gras veterans (and now, locals) I was even given a chance to march in one of the oldest parades on Mardi Gras day itself with bagpipers Kilts of Many Colors. Since I was going to be spending my time either trying to catch (and dodge!) beads or marching, I decided to bring only my smallest camera - a 110 from Lomography called the "Baby Diana." Everyone seemed amused at the tiny camera, but the tiny negatives are extremely lo-fi...and a pain to scan!
We visit New Orleans once or twice a year, and for January's visit I took the Revolog Lazer film I received for Winter Gift Giving Holiday. The "lazer" effect goes continuously throughout the roll; now that I know what it looks like I wish I had gone with standard 35mm frames instead of Diana Baby square and half-frames, since some of the shots showed minimal effects. These are a few I think worked out well, though.
