My Louisiana

This gallery is of scenes and people that make up "my Louisiana" as seen through my eyes and my camera's lens. (See also the gallery "Louisiana's Great River Road")
It is the State of my birth. It is the place that the first Perilloux arrived in New Orleans from France in 1740 and it is the state where family, home and heritage are dear in the hearts of its people. My German ancestors arrived about the same time and settled in the Mississippi River region known as the German Coast.
