Laura Plantation

Northwest of the magnificent New Orleans metropolitan area, mostly located along the fertile banks of the expansive Mississippi River, lie a number of lovingly restored historic mansions and plantation grounds. During our Louisiana trip this year, Mary and I were able to wade in the culture, history, and captivating photoremedy of this breathtaking region.
