Today, while others were barbecuing, I drove about an hour away and helped a friend move (basically) from south of Lake Pontchartrain to north of Lake Pontchartrain! As I was driving along the interstate, I took some pictures (yes, while driving at a high rate of speed, I was photographing scenery for YOU - okay, so it came out very crooked and many shots blurry because I wasn't actually LOOKING into the camera, simply holding it up, pointing, and clicking). A few posts back, I responded to a challenge about your home state. These pictures would definitely perpetuate the myths of life in Louisiana.
This is a little community, unlike the isolated cabin above. Some of these places are "camps," but many of them are primary residences. Again, no roads, but if you look closely you will notice electric poles. Hmm...live electric wires surrounded by water. That's a recipe for disaster if ever I saw one!
A neat little swampy area. If I could have gotten closer, there were probably alligators sunning themselves somewhere on the bank. Notice the little white boat in the bottom right corner. I tried to get pictures of the larger shrimp and crawfish boats, but none of those came out. This was kind of like photography without using your eyes. :^)
Another little "community." Again, no roads, definitely electricity, though. But these little places were so tumble-down. "Papa, the roof's caving in!" "Cher, do you want a roof or TV?" Priorities, you know. Some of these places looked completely uninhabitable, almost third-worldly. But there were obvious signs of habitation.
