16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Light and Shadow
One of the touristy things to do in Louisiana is to visit the plantation houses. Today the houses are restored to provide visitors a glimpse of not so pleasant history of plantation owners and their slaves. Here’s a scene from Oak Alley plantation house near New Orleans. The shadows of people on the wall, waiting in queue to join the tour caught my attention. I was glad to have my camera handy to capture this moment before it disappeared forever along with the setting sun.
