Louisiana | Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a Canon PowerShot S2 IS, so now I am able to post my own pictures. :D

I am still getting used and aquainted to the camera, so my pictures for the first few days or weeks proably wont be top notch. Most of my pictures in the first few days will also most likely be rural, rather than urban pictures. Until I can get into Covington, Baton Rouge, or New Orleans on a photo trip. :D

Everyone is welcome to post their favorite pictures from Louisiana!

Here is the first photo of the day. I was experimenting with scenes and color options on my camera, but I think the picture came out well.:thumbsup:

Hey Nate are ytou actually in Louisiana right now or still in Arkansas? Oh and like I said before if you have any questions about your camera just ask. I'm pretty sure your camera basically has the same menu and everything that mine has.

^I am still in Louisiana right now. I was originally going to leave today or tommorow for Arkansas, but because of some family affairs I will be leaving on the 29th.

Guess I misunderstood you. I thought you had already left to go to Arkansas. Never mind then. :D

Picture of the Day: December 29,2005

Highway 51 and downtown

Independence,LA

To the left, behind the small trees, are the railroad tracks that run from somwhere far up north(I need to find out where!), down into New Orleans. In the 1800's, these tracks were very busy, and are the main reason that Covington was formed.

BTW, I hope TJ doesn't mind that I stole his picture of the day format! :D

Yeah you were the one who started that over in the Arkansas forum as well. Never thought where you might have gotten the idea. I think it's sorta nice for different forums to pick up ideas from others. I know I've mentioned certain things only to see them pop up elsewhere in other states forums or the Southern US forum. Maybe it's just coincidence but I'm hoping that there are people checking out the Arkansas forum and picking up any ideas they get. :D By the way Nate have you noticed your first pic is gone now?

The first picture of the flower is still there. At least I can see it.

Here is a shot of a wooded area near my house in rural Covington. Most of the wooded areas in rural Saint Tammany Parish look this way, while urban areas look so good you would never know a cat. 4 hurricane hit that area. The bottom of the picture is a bit blurry as I was moving quickly.

Here are a few pictures of the rebuilding process on my property here in Covington.

It looks much better than it did on August 29th, but there is still alot of work left.

This 100+ year old wateroak simply couldn't handle Katrina's winds. It was completely snapped at the base.

Most of the fallen trees out here are Pine's.

I have a few more, but I dont want ot overload with thread with pictures, and no discussion.

Weird, all I see is a little thing saying this image isn't available anymore from photobucket.

Interesting pics Nate, if you don't mind me asking is your land very much forested?

Most of my land is open, with large oaks popping up every so often. However, it is surrounded by mostly wooded land on three sides, so a great deal of the fallen trees on my property were from other people's land.

Great picture, alon!

I was walking around the French Quarer this morning(after I forgot my camera:rolleyes:) I checked out my old house on Orleans and talked with some friends in the quarter.

The FQ looks fantastic after Katrina. It's really great to go there, you get that great "home in New Orleans" feeling.

Here is a crop that Louisiana is very well known for...sugar cane. :D

This was taken about 20 miles south of Alexandria.

^crappy quality as the image stabilizer was turned off, but it gives a good "does it ever end!?" effect.
