I just returned from a Coastal Landscape Photography workshop at the Louisiana University Marine Consortium. To say It was an amazing seven days is an understatement. The evidence of land loss is astounding. And while the Cajun culture was enough to make me want to stay forever unfortunately much of it is quite literally being washed away. One acre is lost every thirty minutes. On a brighter note, I met some of the most amazing people at LUMCON and I am here to tell you that snails actually taste pretty good, zydeco music is incredible, hermit crabs are amazing, and Louisiana is truly a special place. I cannot wait to return next year.
