lomographers of acadiana: chauvin, LA

We met a week early this month because Hope has something going on next week. We met at CoCo Marina, and I can personally vouch for their crawfish pies.

There was yet another cemetery on the itinerary–this one was a little different because it was built on an Indian burial mound. Which just seems like bad juju to me. Haven’t these Cajuns ever seen Poltergeist?

But the highlight was the Kenny Hill Sculpture Garden. It’s a really fascinating piece of religious folk art that took a decade to construct and was abandoned by its maker. The Kohler Foundation rescued it–you know Kohler, they make kitchen and bathroom fixtures? One of the heirs of that fortune set up a foundation to rescue and restore folk art. They bought the property, cleaned up the statuary, then gave it to Nicholls State University.
