Lake Arthur Cell Phone Snaps

Back in elementary, Jimbaux thrived on misery.

Hey, how are y’all doing? There is so much to discuss! Did you read my recent update on Patreon? I still am not ready to reactivate the Facebook page; there is still work that I need to do before I do that.

I stopped in Lake Arthur today on my way from the homestead to farther-western outpost, and I got a few cell-phone snaps at the little park area in the central part of town. I don’t think that I have taken an SLR-camera picture since June!

I would loved to have seen the railroad that served this place until about 40 years ago.

So, I have been assiduously plowing through my DLSR-camera pictures from a year ago, and I now have all of the August 2019 pictures up (except for one small and insipid set from the 23rd for which I didn’t make a blog post last year) and all of the September 2019 pictures processed but not yet posted, and, man, it has been a huge time suck!

I will be so relieved when all of the 2019 pictures are done.

On that note, I am really chewing through the backlog, because, while I am working on all of these DSLR-camera pictures (since this is a post of cell-phone pictures, I feel the need to specify ‘real’ camera pictures), I am not creating new ones!

I literally haven’t taken my camera out since June!

Except for occasional travels, I just don’t see myself taking large-scale quantities of pictures anymore for the foreseeable future, if not for the rest of my life, and that’s okay. Last year was a busy year for photography for me because I was busy bouncing back and forth between the homestead and New Orleans, which I knew would end and of which I wanted to take advantage by taking pictures while I still could, and because of the trains of the Louisiana & Delta Railroad branchline to Abbeville, which I had a hunch would not last.

I passed through Kaplan on the way over here. It’s so sad to see the derelict old rice-mill complexes and where the railroad tracks were. I would so love to have seen the trains that operated in that neat little town and area.

Oh, I see that people think that Joe Biden’s speech at the party convention tonight was good. Okay. I hope so. That guy sucks, and he is a big deficit hawk, but we have to vote for him anyway, sadly. No, this isn’t the time to play spoiler, not with democracy itself on the line.

I can’t believe that this is where we are, but am lately incredulous about so many things.

Oh, well.
