I landed in Baton Rouge in 1997. It was both a exciting opportunity for me and kinda depressing because it is well, Louisiana. I have a love/hate relationship with this city. I did meet and marry my wife here and we have a wonderful son. But on the other hand, we have a governor who is killing the state. Since he was elected, then reelected, he has muscled through the entire tea party platform in hopes that it would better position him for President or at least VP.

And as I read the headlines my wife comes home this morning after dropping off our son at school. She has her camera and plugs it into my computer. This is what is on the screen.

Dawn at Campus Lake
Dawn at Campus Lake, Baton Rouge, LA.
There is more love below the fold.

These photos were taken just a mile from our home and despite the fact that it looks like the middle of a swamp it is in fact in the center of our city. Please enjoy!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
