New Post! "Inspired by my recent trip to San Diego. This Sangrita Shrimp cocktail is guaranteed to cool you down and perk you up. Not your Mommas shrimp cocktail, this one comes with some bounce in its step." @lucius_a_fontenot_photography link to blog in bio #porchwineandgravy #seafoodsummer #cocktailwithakick #easytomake #sangritamakesagreatdrinktoo #notonedropwasleft
Even The Butcher Serves A Master
So everyday I get to walk a few blocks down to my friend @creolehonkyspanic 's restaurant @lache_pas_at_acadian_superette and photograph their delicious plate lunches for them to share with the world. I'm a lucky dude. #lachepaslink #luciusafontenotphotography

Shrimp, oysters & Crab! This Italian-American dish revamped with South Louisiana ingredients is a great summer dish as its best at room temp. Check it out on @porch_wine_and_gravy link in the bio. #porchwineandgravy #luciusafontenotphotography
Got to photograph some amazing food last night at the dance and food collaboration put on by @runawaydish and @basinarts at the @acadianacenterforthearts. @lache_pas_at_acadian_superette made the final dish which was fried chicken and choupique caviar. #luciusafontenotphotography
Ever eat at someplace so bad and expensive that you feel physically assaulted? Ever eat at a place that makes you sad you didn't just get a hotdog at a gas station? Well, if you are ever feeling like you hate yourself I got just the place for you.
These girls! So different from each other but so very much sisters. They are the one ones that can get me to ride scary amusement park rides.
D.L. Menard 1932-2017
The Cajun Hank Williams is now The Cajun Honky Tonk Angel, but he will always be to the many people that knew and loved him simply known as DL. Always smiling. Always joking. Always telling a story. His Cajun song "La Porte En Arrière (The Back Door)" was a cross over hit in the 1960's and became the first Cajun song to ever sell a million records. Rolling Stone magazine named "La Porte En Arrière" #72 of the 100 All Time Greatest Country Music Songs. DL has been honored with a GRAMMY and The National Heritage Fellowship Award. In the last year of his life, he was no longer the tall, thin, man in a cowboy hat and boots with a guitar but he never lost his love of performing. Here is a photo of DL I shot July 3, 2017, while performing his hit song for the last time before a hometown crowd in Erath, LA. It was also the 50th Anniversary of the release of "La Porte En Arrière." May God put you on stage to entertain the angels. Rest in Peace. #luciusafontenotphotography
NEW POST @porch_wine_and_gravy "You have had Oyster Bienville but have you had Shrimp Bienville? Ladle this shrimp sauce on some homemade biscuits and you will feel like you are stepping back in time to the days of steamboats and petticoats."
My cousin Chauncey. He was a force. Family man, hunter extrodinare, hard working and only 30. I'll miss you at the hunting camp, telling stories that make your dad and Uncle Mark curse then laugh. If anything comes of your passing know that it is my promise to live every day to the fullest and love my family and friends with all I have. I hope you are in a heaven that is the wilderness you loved.
I swear Evangeline Parish has the best sunsets. #pointeauxpins #evangelineparish #5dmarkiv #luciusafontenotphotography

I haven't figured out the built in wifi on this new camera but I have figured out the Frankie loves boudin. Like prefers it over all else. I'm so proud. #meauxfontenot
The camera doesn't make the photographer. I think I proved this by using a 10mp camera for the past 10 years. But damn...nice new, state of the art equipment nice. I feel like I traded in my 1992 Toyota Corolla for a 2017 Porsche. Hard work and dedication pays off but the support from loved ones is the true fuel. Thank you @joliemeaux, @norrisfontenot & @phoebefontenot for always believing in me.
