    Today was my first real outing with my new camera. I set this day up specifically to go out and find some great things to capture. We started at the Museaum/Planetatrium in Downtown Baton Rouge and then I ventured outside of it to the History of Louisiana Museum and USS KIDD.
    Some of these, I am actually very proud of, some not so, but wanted to share them anyway.

    1. This was taken outside of the History of Louisiana Museaum and USS KIDD.

    2. Sitting along the levee of the Mississippi River.

    3. My son inside the Planetarium - reminded me of Y.M.C.A. on drugs LOL

    4. The River Center (which recently housed thousands of New Orleans refugees) which sits accross the street from where I was photographing. (Anyone want to go see Motley Crew? LOLOLOL!) I messed up the photo I took of the sign saying "Larry The Cable Guy" getting tickets to that one!! HAHAH!!

    5. Rooftop of the Art School accross the street.

    6. One of my favorites - this was a monument at the History of Louisiana Museaum.

    10. I think this is a bird.

    11. A statue of some dude holding an apple in the Planetarium. (No flash photography aloud and it was pretty dark in there, so this was the best I could do.)

    Wow JM, your story was quite moving! That is so neat too that we both captured that and in black and white nonetheless. There were tons of monuments there and I did not want to over do it on them, so this was the one I chose to photograph.

    thanks guys! I really didnt think they were that good, but I have been really hard on myself since I started using this camera and Photoshop, etc. I am my worst critic!! But everyone's positive feedback has really boosted my (photography esteem? LOL). But I dont mind critique, for it only helps me improve.
