Greetings from 39571: Pass Christian, MS #MBsociallydriven

SPONSORED/ UNPAID 

US90 skirts the Gulf of Mexico and at Pass Christian it's right there, on the passenger side,
if you're heading eastbound, as I was.
I first photographed Pass Christian in 1995, on my way to an art retreat at The Hambidge Center in Rabun Gap, GA:
(before Katrina, with piers intact) 
The 2014 On the Edge US quick look: 

(These might not all be exactly Pass Christian. May include other Gulf towns west of Biloxi)
See more Mississippi Edge photos starting HERE in my Flickr album.

Linking up with Catherine's #SaturdayShareLinkup
Next stop? Alabama!

NOLA #MBsociallydriven

SPONSORED/ UNPAID 
Long time, no write!

I believe I have found a way to return to writing about my 2014 On the Edge trip and to perhaps maintain my interest in the task. Time will tell!

Mercedes Benz approached me with a fun way to "Share My City". << click on that link from your smart device and you can join in!

Here is my New Orleans:



My plan is to make more of these 5-image slide shows of my trip.
Five images, one zip code = mini slide show. (Hopefully not just sunrises from my motel rooms -- I have A LOT of those!)
I had left off writing about the trip at New Orleans, and I thought it'd be a good starting point for this iteration of the project.

Next up, April 3, 2014: somewhere between NOLA and Panama City, FL.

If you make your own slideshow, will you share it here? 
I'd love to see everyone's 9-second adventures!

Update: On the Edge, The Journal

I have found a great way to procrastinate on the Fashion Illustration exhibition that I'm "supposed" to be working on, due in December.

Working on my "journal" that I meant to keep during the 2014 Edge trip!
Is it still a journal if I work on it two years after the journey?
Maybe it's a memoir now.

I left you hanging in New Orleans on my last 2014 Roadtrip Recap post,
not a bad place to be, by any means.

I'm getting the pages prepped with gesso. Then I'll adhere the ephemera. Most of the maps were glued into place back in May 2014. Somehow I missed a section of Montana and Idaho (Washington is already glued in) so I'll have to make an extension page. Fun times.

I've had some good help sorting the ephemera:
What is it with cats and paper? They always plop down in the middle of it! 
Eventually, I'll get the Roadtrip Recaps rolling again, this time with the journal pages as headers. So we will all know where we are on the map. I will resume the recaps with Day 8, NOLA to Panama City, FL. Stay tuned! See it in photos over on Flickr now, if you're feeling impatient.
