NOLA’s BACKYARD – Poche’s Market

Sixth Post



Now we are in the coach … amazing what you can shoot out of a moving window!


Now it is time to experience Cajun culture at the family owned meat packing plant called Poche’s Market and Restaurant in Breaux Bridge, LA.




Cracklins are fried pieces of pork fat with a small amount of attached skin …

It’s Gator Season in Louisiana and we are heading to Riceland Crawfish  (above) to see how the gators are cleaned, skinned and processed.

And this is why I love what I do … every day is different. One day I’m photographing the leader of the free world and the next …. Well you get the picture.

Above shows the crawfish cages and the “beer bottle” method to make the indentation in the cage.
