Laissez les Bon Temps Roulez

"Let the Good Times Roll." My wife and I were invited to a crawfish boil this Saturday to celebrate the 30th birthday of a long time friend of our sons. Boiled crawfish, potatoes, corn on the cob, and sausage along with other goodies made up the menu and a good time was had by all. This shot is of the birthday boy helping out with the cooking.

I like the different angle you took on this one. I might think about getting rid of a big hung of the ice chest, not sure it adds much, especially all that white!
Good shot of a normal activity.

Interesting street portrait Larry!

I like the steam rising from the ice chest and the burner in the background. They help tell the story!

Well done!
