First, thanks for joining me in this third year of Abandoned Baton Rouge.
I finally made it into 2008 and created a Facebook page for ABR after I was alerted to a Baton Rouge memories page on Facebook running photos of places I've covered here, such as the Real Superstore and the Broadmoore Theater. Must say, I found that Facebook page to be suspiciously derivative of this blog. But at any rate, won't you be my fan?
I want to thank everyone for the praise, insight, and memories you leave. I don't often respond to the comments, but I read every one with interest. And you are too kind--Lord knows a lot of the photos on here are not my best; in fact, I cringe to look back at many posts--never mind the fact that most of the time I don't even have interior access to the buildings I feature.
Thanks to the guy who brought me here to Louisiana in the first place, and to the birthday of Baby Jesus, I have a new camera--a much better one, without sand damage to the lens. And I have never been a trained photographer, but I've been slowly improving with practice. I have less than five months left living in BR, but I hope these will
be productive months for the blog (and as always, I need your
suggestions for sites to check out). So let's make these last few months count!
