We spent this past weekend in Shreveport, Louisiana, one of our favorite places for a weekend "getaway."
Before we moved to Vicksburg, we lived in Bossier City (pronounced Boze'-zure) for five years, and we enjoy going back every now and then to visit some of our favorite places and restaurants, such as Herby K's, Superior Grill, and The Cub. Olive Street Bistro is our favorite Italian restaurant in Shreveport, but we ran out of time this trip.
We stayed at the new Courtyard Marriot which is located on the river, and I captured these pictures of the Shreveport skyline early Saturday morning.
Here's another picture I took later that morning from the River View Park on the other side of the river. You can see the Marriot in the background ...
I captured this picture of the beautiful Horseshoe Casino as we were crossing the old Highway 80 bridge, which spans the Red River near downtown Shreveport.
Shreveport is a beautiful and very interesting city, and a photographer's treasure trove of photographs just begging to be captured. I took hundreds of pictures over the weekend, and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them this week, especially this beautiful landmark the AT&T building which is literally a work of art. I can't wait to tell you its story.
