My Photo: Day 7 of 7 The Oak Trees

Last but not least my seven-day photo  challenge. Now, this is a photo shot   of the entrance to Rip Van Winkle Gardens. in  Jefferson Island, Louisiana. I will say it came out okay.

My Dad always spoke of these Oak trees on how they were planted by hand bu him and his family members. I am glad I finally was able to visit this place.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

My Photo: Day 6 of 7

Now, this photo shot is from my mini vacation to Jefferson Island , Louisiana. The name is The Joseph Jefferson Mansion and there is tours to view the home but I did not get a chance to go on the tour.
Any, I wanted to see how my photo shot looked in black and white. I have to say I like the result. 🙂

I wish could have taken a tour but we were short on time.

My Photo: Day 3 of 7 Moon Light

I had to zoom in on this photo shot, which I have to admit came out good.


A lucky photo shot

Now, I took this photo shot two weeks ago. I wanted to take a photo shot of the Full Moon but it was cloudy and my night-time photos does not come clear.

My Photo: Seven Days Photo Challenge

Okay, I never did any photo challenges before, which mean it is my first photo challenge in black  and white. I will try to post a new photo shot in black and white each day.

Anyway,  here is my first black and white photo shot of  my Mom’s white Rose,  bush, which is finally blooming. All summer long  I waited for these Roses to bloom.

Finally Bloom

Have a nice weekend! 🙂

My Writing: A Short Cajun Mystery

It’s a work in progress and my shortest post. I might keep  the way it is or do a rewrite. Never know with me.

A Cajun Mystery
He wanders on the shoreline, with sorrow in his heart.
For hundreds of years, he waited for his freedom. But none saw the truth to his curse.
His answer comes in a young lady, who holds the key to solving his family mystery.

This photo shot gives an idea to the setting on my work in progress


Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂


My Writing: A Personal Essay Revisits

Since it is rice harvest season I decided to revisit my personal essay. Now, I will move on from my personal essay.

Haunted Fields

From dawn to dust, he walks the lonely fields, each day
With his shovel over his shoulder.
He checks for thing astray in the fields.
Those whom recognized him remarks,
He hasn’t grown old since the day,
they first got together with him.
He, still wears his old straw cowboy hat
Blue faded long sleeves shirt and pants.
He still wears his green hip boots.
To walk in the murky water of the rice field
Now, he does not speak to many.
Plenty, have spoken with him in the predawn hours.
From words, He wanders in the distance rice fields.
They recognize his shovel over his shoulders.
Others caught sight of him driving an old John Deere tractor with plow,
in a field but disappears in their presence.
The only visible sign of him, being here is a single distant
sound of a John Deere tractor’s steam whistle in twilight sky.
No one understands why he walks the fields.
If they knew, they will shed a tear.
Someday, his journey for his family’s crest
will be over for him.
Until, then he never rest.

A Cajun rice farmer for 50 something years.
