I'm very keen on photography. I have been since I was a boy. I've decided to post some of my favorite photographs that I've taken in Louisiana. Some will come from my photo blog (which I still update occasionally) and others will come from the various shoeboxes, scrapbooks, and folders in which I keep most of my pictures.
Randall's ancestors arrived in Louisiana as refugees from the United States of America. They were Loyalists who fled South Carolina in the 1780s after it became obvious that the anti-British rebels were going to succeed in seceding. Louisiana, which was Spanish at the time, provided a safe-haven for Randall's forebears. Around 1800, Louisiana became French (again), but that didn't really bother Randall's ancestors. They were still safely in a foreign country. However, the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 brought them back into the jurisidiction of the USA. Everything turned out okay, though. Now, Randall writes this blog.
