Baton Rouge II Photos Up On Flickr

Amazingly, I've had another full weekend off.

I spent yesterday morning photowalking the northern part of downtown Baton Rouge in general and the State Capitol Building in particular.

After recalling what little I learned in school about Louisiana's history, I found it interesting to step into the lobby of the State Capitol Building where the late Huey P. "Kingfisher" Long was fatally shot on September 8, 1935. There is, apparently, some disagreement as to whether his assassin actually shot him, or whether he simply punched Long and Long was subsequently shot by a stray bullet from his bodyguards and state police, which had opened fire on the assailant and shot him some 30 times.

Anyway, if you're interested, there are about 108 photos in the Baton Rouge II collection on my Flickr page.
