Wow it’s been a crazy few weeks – working too hard with very little internet. But I’ve been in some cool and beautiful places and hope to catch up on some editing and blogging over the next few weeks.
This is Houmas House in Louisiana, an old sugar plantation now open for tours.
This is Hopson Commissary just outside of Clarksdale, Mississippi.
This is the main barn on the Latta Plantation outside of Charlotte, North Carolina.
These are the slave quarters at the Latta Plantation outside of Charlotte, North Carolina.
I really enjoyed shooting at Houmas House in Gonzales, Louisiana. But this it the last one for now. I really enjoyed the spring flowers and the statues on the property.

This is the beautiful Houmas House on River Road in Louisiana. Once a big sugar plantation house, now it is open for tours and exudes old southern charm.
This is beautiful Stanton Hall in Natchez, Mississippi. Natchez is a beautiful town full of Antebellum homes, and this has always been one of my favorites.
The Hopson Plantation just outside Clarksdale, Mississippi was the first plantation to completely mechanize cotton production. Once the home of delta blues legend Joe “Pinetop” Perkins, today it sits in a state of arrested decay. Music can still be found in the commissary on certain nights, and the rooms are up for rent. Definitely a cool stop along the Blues Trail.
