Earlier this month while traveling to Baldwin, LA. with some friends, we stopped at the San Francisco Plantation in Garyville, LA. The large house was built in 1856 along the Mississippi River by Valsin Marmillion for his wife Louise von Seybold and their children. A large sugar plantation and mill occupied the large estate at that time. Today all that remains are the house, restored slave cabin and school house along with several administrative buildings. Marathon Petroleum Company now owns the property.
Under the large expansive porch sat one isolated rocking chair which provided a good subject for this theme, “Isolated Object(s)”.
