An Honest Day’s Work

11/9/2010:

I am moving my blog to http://www.toddlandryphotography.com/?page_id=20.  Please note the change and continue to visit.

The statue at the entrance to McNeese St University in Lake Charles, LA.  The statue, titled “An Honest Day’s Work,” was designed by Fred Fellows of Sonoita, Ariz. He is known for Western figure-genre paintings and sculpture that commemorate cowboy life.  The sculpture, which depicts an 1870-to-1880s-period cowboy, was selected because it resembled the university’s logo. It stands 11 feet tall without the base and is 9 feet 6 inches long and 7 feet wide. It weighs about 2,800 pounds.

Sweet Lake

10/26/2010:

Another shot from my trip to Lake Charles, LA this past weekend to shoot buildings for Champeaux, Evans, Hotard Architects.  I was shooting the building at this location, waiting for the sun to break out under the clouds to get some nice shadows on the building.  I kept watching the sunset and finally gave up on the building and turned to get this shot of the small private lake in front of the building facing the sunset.
