Picture of an old rust red tractor in a field in Autumn in Middle Georgia's rural Macon County

This weekend was the 13th annual Beaver Creek Festival in Montezuma, Georgia. I decided this year to both get a booth as well as enter some photography in the art show held in conjunction with it.

Picture of the 191 Peachtree Tower in Atlanta, Georgia

Pictured here is one of the office tower’s in downtown Atlanta. I love the architecture of this building. I’ve read it described as post-modern architecture in style. To my eye, it’s reminiscent of art deco or at least inspired by that architectural style, even if it was built in the early 1990’s. It reminded me a lot of the looming buildings seen in early 20th century cartoons. How about you, can you see the influence in either the architecture or perhaps my unconscious framing of the subject? The angle in … Continue reading
