Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

I had a lot of fun last week when doing this and after being selected by the guest host, an amazing photographer named Terrence Jones, I decided to flip through some of my photos and try again.

This week’s topic is Free Spirit, and to be honest it took me a little while to think about what that meant to me. I wanted to make sure that I had a photo that really represented what free spirit looked like to me. I speak a lot about passions, fears, desires and purposes with others, but what I realized I was lacking was spirit. I wanted to capture that in this week’s challenge. I wanted the blogsphere to see what my spirit looked like; kind, soft, generous and delicate.

I went to New Orleans a couple of months after Hurricane Katrina, and I was amazed at the destruction that I saw. While walking through the 9th Ward (the area that was hit the hardest during the storm) I got these few pictures. To me, they speak volumes about the actual people that lived there and although the entire area was silent, the spirit was as loud as Mardi Gras! It was all around us and I tried to capture that with the essence of these photos.

Please take the time to comment, I love the feedback and hope you like these photos 🙂

I hope these photos touch your spirit the way they did mine.
