Postcard from Louisiana Plantations | Denver Fine Art Photographer

Sugarcane plantations

Life in Louisiana and on a plantation is something I know nothing about. Everything is very different than my Colorado and Nebraska roots. I found the plantation tour quite intriguing. We went to two different types of Sugarcane plantations. The first was Oak Alley Plantation, which is what I imagined a plantation to be, the typical white house with manicure lawns. The second was Laura Plantation, a Creole plantation. Something I didn’t even know existed!

Here is Oak Alley Plantation-

Absolutely beautiful!

And here is Laura Plantation-

the creole plantation house was painted in beautiful yellow, red, and teal blue

this is a two room slave quarters

If you are ever in New Orleans, I would HIGHLY recommend the River Road Plantation Tour. I learned so much about our history, and the culture of southern plantations.
