supporting small coffee shops

On my last visit back home to Louisiana, I learned that one of my favorite local coffee shops, America's Coffee House, had to close their doors.

I was pretty shocked.  I loved the place.  So much character and charm, not to mention - good coffee.

I had many great conversations with the owner, Floyd - was a fellow photographer.  He had his work displayed on canvas on the walls - so beautiful.  We could probably talk shop for hours.

So glad that I captured these images.  I will miss this space.  

I am now motivated more than ever to support my local coffee shops.  Quite often, they are community centers, and places to gather and network. More than that, they are a direct result of someone's dream, hard work and dedication.  And I will always support that vision.

Here are pictures from a previous visit.
