Oak Alley *explored*
Made by Alex Holzknecht
WOOHOO: For the very first time one of my pics went *explored*!! :) Thank you so much, evereybody! #137 @ May 30, 2010 is one of my favorite photogaphers on flickr. When I scrolled through his photostream I found this picture. I remembered that I took a quite similar picture when I was there, too. So I tried a quite similar presentation of the pic, too. I really don't want to copy people - it's more a tribute to his work. In other words I want to show how much I appreciate his work and how I admire his pictures. And in the end it's still a little bit different. For me that's OK, I hope it is for you as well. ;)

This is a view from the second floor balcony of Oak Alley Plantation located in Vacherie, Louisiana looking toward the Mississippi River. I took this picture here on Friday, August 26, 2005 as a passenger of the American Queen Steamboat. This was our last scenic stop until New Orleans, Louisiana. We arrived at New Orleans on Saturday, August 27, 2005. We evacuated the New Orleans area on Sunday, August 28, 2005. Hurricane Katrina struck the area on Monday, August 29, 2005. I wondered how these majestic trees stood up to the storm. Other photos on Flickr have shown that they survived nicely through Katrina. This photo even looks better when viewed in large size.

View On Black Oak Alley Plantation is a historic plantation located on the Mississippi River in the community of Vacherie, Louisiana. It is protected as a National Historic Landmark. It is named after its distinguishing feature, an alley or canopied path created by a double row of live oaks about 800 feet (240 meters) long, which was planted in the early 1700s, long before the present house was built. The alley leads towards the Mississippi River.

The Big House at the Oak Alley Plantation. It was planned in Greek Revival style with 28 columns to match the 28 oaks lining the driveway. The tour of the house was interesting, with lots of information about the original owners. However, we weren't allowed to take photos, so we didn't get a picture of the Shoo-Fly Fan that was over the dining room table. It was used to make dinner guests more comfortable. The fan was kept in motion by a salve boy sitting on a chair in the corner and pulling on a rope.

I have a few photos to upload from my recent trip to New Orleans, but I've just been pretty busy lately and haven't had the time. So expect one here and there for a little while until I've got them all uploaded. This is the Oak Alley Plantation in Vacherie, Louisiana, outside of New Orleans. This was an amazingly beautiful location and has been used in several films, including Interview with the Vampire. Oh, and my husband Jeff makes a small cameo in this photo. See if you can find him! :D

The tour of Oak Alley was pretty good and it's a gorgeous house. I wish the landscape was better preserved and for the most part it does not tell the story of the slaves. Also, I'm usually quickly turned off whenever a docent states that there are no closets in a historic house due to the closet tax. Oak Alley was constructed in 1837. It's one of the most popular plantations along the River Road. Oak Alley is on the National Register #74002187 and also a National Historic Landmark.

I was set up to collect some images of the trees with the house in the background. While I waited for people to clear from in front of the house (I'll post those later) we had the pleasure of meeting Dr. and Mrs. Adrian Bodet from Mobile, Alabama. He was kind enough to compose and capture this image for us. Oak Alley Plantation. Near Vacherie, Louisiana | | About Jason |

The live oak trees are believed to be more than 300 years old and predate the house by more than 130 years. The home was built between 1837 and 1839. Other than the oaks, the outstanding feature of the plantation house is the doric columns that surround the house. There are 28 in all made of solid brick. This photograph was taken on April 9, 2005.

This is the picturesque front view of the Oak alley plantation house. Another subject with very old history (subjects of love and slavery). Though the color version is striking, I decided to stick with the sephia toned version to get the impact of the history behind the plantation house

We saw fourteen beautiful oak trees leading away from the front of the mansion. We also learned that there are fourteen columns around the perimeter of the house - one for each of the trees in the front. Oak Alley Plantation. Near Vacherie, Louisiana | | About Jason |

The Oak Alley belongs to a historic plantation on Mississippi river. The plantation was built between 1837 and 1837, but the 240m double alley of oaks already has been there since the early 18th century. The house is famous for its appearance in many movies, one of them being Inteview with a Vampire starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

This is a view of the Oak Alley plantation near New Orleans. The 28 oak trees are around 300 years old, about 100 years older than the plantation manor, planted by a settler with some foresight, it seems! The fourth tree on the left, not visible in the photograph unfortunately collapsed a week before I shot this in mid April 2010.

Visited the Oak Alley Plantation along the Great River Road between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana. Thomas was our knowledgeable guide. The 28 oak trees lining the walk are over 300 years old. The view on the left is from the levee, looking across the Mississippi River.

This is a view of the side of the Oak Alley Plantation House. This view gives one a better look at the doric columns. Yes, this house is painted pink, but it was built by a French Creole. The word Creole identifies Frenchman born in the New World.
