Black and White #25



In LaSalle Parish, in central Louisiana, is an out of the way cemetery where some folks on my Dad's side of the family are buried.

The first photo is one of a part of that cemetery. The person in the back of the cemetery is my Big Sis, who was with us when I last visited family grave sites.

The second photo is of part of one of several bayous that run through my home town of Monroe, Louisiana. This bayou is called Bayou DeSiard. (pronounced da-ZEERD)

The bottom one is very Clude Butcher-esque.

I used to enjoy fishing in Black bayou with a friend who lived in Monroe.
