New Orleans for a week!
So much fun driving around the NOLA area! Got to view some of the old plantations that I have always wanted to see. The times must have been incredibly hard for folks after looking at what they had for living conditions! However the plants and the sheer visuals of the venue really intrigued me. We stayed in a big hotel in New Orleans and drove around the area to capture these fun images coming up later in the piece. Since I have become so active with Atlanta Canvas and Print believe me I will be adding some more canvas to my display walls in my home! But lets get to looking at some of these images...
This old plantation was the one in the Forrest Gump movie I was told. It came at the end of our day and I did not get to explore it because we had to return to the big city for the night! However at an earlier visit to Laura's Plantation I got to see many old artifacts and had a informational tour all around that plantation. Here are some interesting images from that different farm (plantation)!
This was taken inside what was described as the slave quarters located nearer the cane fields of the plantation. The lighting here was great and took little or no work to prepare for publishing this blog. Notice the board walls with no insulation for sure! Tough!
Imagine after all these years that this front door is still in operable condition...
Just an old road that appealed to me from the composition it offered. It lead to the bamboo forest shown earlier.
There were swamp areas with the usual inhabitants to be wary of everywhere we visited. Seems like I got quite an alligator collection on this trip. After spending so much time in Florida I believe these were on par much smaller. But then perhaps I was not in the right place to see the big boyz!
It was a terrific trip but perhaps a little long for this old man! I am headed out later this month to visit Moab, Utah with Jeff Clow and revisit the Arches, Canyonland and other nearby national parks for some really beautiful desert scenery! Jeff has an amazing itenirary prepared and I am excited to see all the sights there...
