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.
