I like this image of a street in Natchitoches, Louisiana, because the street parallels the Cane River and is a wonderful place to stroll in the charming small town atmosphere. Natchitoches is the place where the movie Steel Magnolias starring Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Daryl Hannah, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, and Olympia Dukakis was filmed.

    Oh wow, I didn’t know that was where Steel Magnolias was filmed!!:O
    I love that movie…almost as much as I love your shot Bonnie.

    It has a rather old feel to it, and I can just imagine it is some time in the mid 50s or early 60s…if not 40s…But then B & W is always emotive and expressive, isn’t it?

    But I love the composition here, with the tree spreading wide like a roof over the scene, and the perspective of the roads, river and central island of trees disappearing into a vanishing point in the distance.
    Almost feel I could get out my ruler and put the lines in…oh and the contrasts, light and shade are excellent too.

    Just wonderful work all round!!!!

    “The town where time stood still.” I can imagine little has changed here for decades, but obviously it has.
    It looks serene & gentle

    What a charming place this is, Bonnie. The black and white adds to the nostalgia! Great tones and thanks for the history!

    I loved the film Bonnie and to see the actual town is wonderful. I loved the Shirley McLaine part with that enormous Great Dane. Fantastic B&W shot

    I’ve been to Natchitoches many times! Great little place, like stepping back into the 50’s and you’ve got a great piece of it! Thanks for the memories….
