Robert Walker, Jerry Rushing and I hit another goldmine of photos on Saturday during a jaunt into Louisiana. The sunrise along the levee was absolutely spectacular with the fog burning off. We also revisited an old church along the levee that I have photographed for years. She's going down quickly. A couple of old homesteads near the church also yielded a great photo of a chest of drawers and a handmade ironing board, plus some dishes that seem to have just been left there like the owner was going to come back and wash them up. I love the photo above of what remains of the choir loft section of the old church.

I have not taken many photos lately because I have been so frustrated with how bad my vision was becoming. But the removal of a cataract on Tuesday has renewed my lease on life and you should expect more pictures from me this year than in the last couple of years. I am excited to be back!
This is the old Chapel of the Cross Church in Anguilla. Another photo of the church is at the end of this post
The photos below were taken on a road we found that went to an old cemetery on the outskirts of Anguilla. We could not find anyone to tell us about the cemetery or these tractors and old homes.
A homemade road grader. Is this cool or what?
The four photos below are of another cabin in Anguilla that shows cardboard nailed onto the walls for added insulation. I felt the chill just by looking at the walls and it was another reminder of how blessed I am to have the home that I have.
I love the little town of Nitta Yuma and the winter months has exposed the sign for the abandoned Nitta Yuma post office.
