Blast from the past.

Thanks to my dad for forwarding this Flickr pool. Most of the photographs appear to be from 30s and 40s-era Louisiana, but it's uncanny how the architecture and traditions shown remain pretty much unchanged. It's also rather embarassing that I can't figure out many of the very distinctive landmarks, notwithstanding my 30 years living and travelling in this state.

The artist, while not from Louisiana, does a tremendous job of documenting the nuances of life here. Every once in awhile, it's nice to get a reminder of why I sometimes love living here.

The funny thing is, you know when you're from Louisiana when you can probably determine the exact date this photo was taken with little trouble (notwithstanding the date in the corner).
