    My 6 yr old and I spent the day at the Houma House Plantation that is about 2 miles from our house. We had a lot of fun. The owner's mother and my son played ball with the owner's (bride/female - funny story behind that - they have a female dog and a male dog and they got married there at the plantation a couple of years ago in front of over a thousand people!!! They even have their own bedroom in the house LOL) dog most of the time we were there.
    Anyway, I really love going there and finally got the chance to get a few nice photos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

    wow, great pictures! And yes, I think any guy would want a picture of an alligator biting his head off. :lmao:

    Number 5 is great, some serious emotion behind it. It might look cool sort of life a lithograph, black and white with high contrast. Maybe not, I'm not sure. But anyway, great shot and it looks like a lot of fun!
