Shreveport/Bossier City is a pretty nice metro area. It seems like I'm so far from New Orleans when I'm there...seems further than 6 hours, as the culture is so different. But, it's actually got it's hip side and I've seen it a few times and was impressed. It's a steady city that isn't booming, but, certainly isn't declining. It's just a metro area that is steadily moving forward at it's own comfortable pace.

Wow, USA is really the land of skyscrapers. This city could be half of mine in population and it already has those highrises!

loved the tallest building... it really makes the skyline win a 7.5/10 w/o it, it would win a 6.5/10

Here are some of my photos of my home city, Shreveport. These are some of the most recent photos you're likely to see, as I've noticed most posted here have been pretty out of date. As you can see in my first photo below, the riverfront area has a much more urban look these days with an urban park and hard edge riverwalk area.

Skyline as seen from Horseshoe Casino:


Downtown Shreveport from the air, photo courtesy of my wife:


Skyline as seen from Louisiana Boardwalk:


AmSouth Tower rising among a group of high-rises:


Skyline from the north with the new Hilton hotel rising:


Two casino hotels along the Shreveport riverfront:


Skyline just a couple weeks ago, around sunset:


26-floor Horseshoe Casino Hotel:


Another shot of the Horseshoe Casino Hotel:


A look back toward the riverfront/casino district skyline from the CBD:


Another view of the riverfront/casino district skyline, from street level:


Nighttime along Shreveport's riverfront with casino hotels aglow:


Not the greatest shot, but Shreveport's CBD skyline at night:


I hope everyone enjoys these additions. I'm proud to share, as photographing and spreading the word about my beautiful home city is a labor of love.
