Charles' presentation was located in one of the meeting rooms in the capitol building (tallest in the U.S.,) and scheduled for the first slots of the day.
The presentation went well. I admire Charles' ability to talk in front of a crowd (something I'm typically unable to do.)
Outside of the book signing tent; Mardi Gras beads in a magnolia tree. Does it get more Louisianan than that?
The reflections in this hallway (in the capitol,) were lovely. Still, I was surprised at how dimly lit the interior of the capitol building was--as though everything that transpires there is done in the comfort of the shadows.
The lobby of the capitol building.
Our state seal.
The state library, where the Author's party was held the previous evening. I have 2 words to say about that party; chocolate fountain.
I didn't expect to run into Dorothy and Toto from the Wizard of Oz.
I'm not a "churchy" person, but this shot of the spire of the Cathedral of St. Joseph in the sun had to be taken.
Reflections in a building on our way back to the car.
Next time out, I swear I'm bringing my sun hat!
