Lagniappe - n. : something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure. (merriam-webster.com)

Summer travel - the crowds, the heat, the traffic - is something I try to avoid.  But I took the plunge and decided to make my August journey a road trip.  And outside of the obvious event on August 21, I didn’t have any specific photography goals.  Sitting in the shade with an ice cream, prowling through used bookstores - those were my goals.  So it was a pleasant surprise when special moments arrived and the camera was at hand.  The moment on eclipse eve when the setting sun shone through a cloud of dust, creating beautiful backlighting with the flag in the breeze.  Or when a shadow fell a certain way, across a mural on the side of a building.  Abstracts (of course).  I’ve added these images and a few others to the album Journey to the Eclipse.  I hope you'll take a took.
