This is the new Louisiana "Forever" Stamp...a
commerative stamp put out by the USPS. The
photograph was taken by C. C. Lockwood,
a prominent photographer here in the state. He
has published several photography books, and
continues to work for the conservation of the
wetlands and other endangered environments.
He co-authored a book, "Marsh Mission:
Capturing the Vanishing Wetlands" with Rhea Gary,
a Baton Rouge artist who specializes in painting
the waterways of south Louisiana in bold, colorful
oil paintings. I have seen her work, and have always
liked it. And his photography is outstanding as well.
You can look them up, and let me know what you
think. And go out and buy some stamps!
