About the Book
This Coffee Table book features a brief history of New Orleans; and the history, birds and wildlife of Lafreniere Park in the residential suburb of Metairie, on the outskirts of New Orleans, Louisiana. “The bird life in Lafreniere Park is unsuspectingly spectacular. Usually when reading a sign that states “Bird Sanctuary” you expect to see a few birds. However, the pure multitude of birds in this park is mind-boggling; the sheer number of species staggering. And they live, and thrive, in perfect harmony with their human neighbors. My desire is that my photographs give you a sense of what it is really like to spend time amongst the birds of Lafreniere Park.” according to Eugene Brill, nature photographer and outdoor enthusiast. “Feeding my curiosity for history and my interest in photography, I further developed my love of the natural world that has since become the primary focus of my life. My goal is to use photography to bring history to life.” shares the author.
Features & Details
Feeding my curiosity for history and my interest in photography, I further developed my love of the natural world that has since become the primary focus of my life. My goal is to use photography to bring history to life. I will give you a sense of understanding history and hopefully bring the stories to life! Viewing the landscape, historical markers and wildlife will help me share with you the fascination I feel when delving into the past. EUGENE L BRILL is a nature and landscape photographer. I’m a dedicated naturalist volunteer, as well as an avid gardener, and photographer. I do not speak in taxonomic groupings, species and genera, but can communicate clearly with “Joe Public” in language everyone understands. I love to share knowledge and my photography, and I believe Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD) is real, agree that “forest bathing” (fully clothed, of course . . .) makes us happier, healthier, and more creative.
