Thanks to Cumulus Promotions Director "Dutch" for letting me take pictures at this year's Ball. I haven't been to New Orleans since Katrina and I truly miss the fun and frivolity of the pre-Ash Wednesday party.
What are you giving up for Lent?
Me, I'm giving up...hmmm...well I don't do well with giving up stuff. Maybe I can add something good instead. Vegetables or fruit with every meal? Too easy. Maybe I'll get back on the running tip. That's it. 1 mile a day, every day during Lent.
And no, I'm not even Catholic.
So what happened at Sinners Ball?
Let's see there was a band called The Colour or something like that. I took some pictures of them but I'm not going to bore you with pictures of a band you've never heard of. They had a nice beat but I didn't dance. If you're really that interested you can check them out on their webpage.
Then there were The Donnas. Sweet mother of Romulus they sounded good. And looked good.
I took tons of pictures of lead singer Brett. It was scary how good they turned out using a handheld 70-200IS. Here's a sample straight from the camera, no PhotoShop:
The rest of Sinners Ball you had to be there to fully enjoy. Suffice it to say it was a real pleasure.
Just ask Dutch:
