being a tourist

Oak Alley

Last week I visited Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana. The place has a fascinating story, as do many of the old plantation homes in the south, but it also has the most beautiful old oak trees I’ve ever seen.

Afterwards when looking through my pictures, it sort of bothered me that there was people in the shots, but then I remembered that my editing program allows me to retouch. So then I simply retouched the people out. Then the iron railings. And then I kind of went overboard with the colors and the lighting.

In any version, this is a gorgeous place.

I do love the altered ones, though..
