My presentation at the Gulf States Camera Club Convention was a lot of fun and very well received. It was a great honor to be a guest speaker at the convention; I hope they'll invite me back for some future event. On Friday evening there was a fais-do-do of sorts for 200 shutterbugs at Shadows on the Teche - the historic home built for sugarcane planters David and Mary Weeks, completed in in 1834 - where these photos were taken. I got completely stuffed on some terrific Cajun food and had great dinner conversation with other photographers from Louisiana and Texas.

Off to New Iberia tomorrow for the GSCCCC. I'm speaking Friday at 1PM; hope to see you there. On the way home I might stop off at Avery Island or maybe lower St. Mary Parish for some photography so I'll post results if I do.

A recent visit to Grand Isle. Both Grand Isle State Park and Elmer's Island were open - no oil on the beaches. The head of Grand Isle was closed, east of the pier at the state park, for reasons unknown. Fourchon beach was still mysteriously closed to the public. Signs read "no pedestrians beyond this point." A great spring day - sunny and warm, coming on the heels of major rains the day before.
