Lost Morning On The Chattahoochee River

Lazy Morning On The Chattahoochee River

My years dealing with rolls of film were long past by the time the camera bug truly bit me, but it’s still a part of my youth. And misplacing film was practically a way of life for me. Heck, my baby pictures were on a roll of film lost for years thanks to an absent minded uncle! So, I think that shows that lost film and my life are genuinely hand in hand. That’s been the one lost pleasures of digital photography. Sure, flash cards might go bad or hard … Continue reading

Discontinuing Photo-books For Now

Cover Photos for Coming Home and Egytpian Dreams photo-books

I’m sad to say that I’ve decided for now at least to discontinue the sale of my photo books. If you didn’t know I offered them, shame on me for not doing a better job pushing that information out there! Background I pushed my first photo book, Egyptian Dreams, into the world in September of 2009. Of my travels, there’s no doubt that my trip to Egypt is still a highlight. And I’m still quite proud of that first foray into books. The folks who purchased it were a mixture … Continue reading

A Drive Down Memory Lane: The Guide to Historic Architecture and Sites in Montezuma

After deciding to leave Atlanta in mid 2009, I returned home to Montezuma, Georgia. While I wasn’t born here, I was young enough when I came here that I don’t remember any other place I’d call home. I had often taken photos here when visiting on the odd weekend, but it was the first chance I’d had since becoming enchanted by photography to really take the time to explore Montezuma with my camera. As it turned out, this time to explore had the unlikely fortune to coincide with a project … Continue reading

Fall in North Georgia

Photo of an old shed in North Georgia in the Autumn

Fall is just my favorite season. Spring is a close second, but autumn has the cool temps and the bright colors, especially in the north part of the state where I lived for a decade. In fact, even though the Alpharetta area where I lived wasn’t really in the mountains or anything, it was far enough up to have some great color. This is a picture of a scene I used to pass everyday on the way to work. This old farm shed had seen better days but it was … Continue reading

Crossroads Store – Rural Southern Americana

Crisp County Georgia picture - Crossroads store - old Country Store

There will always be a soft spot in my heart for pictures of lonesome back-roads – real Americana.  So many of the places pictured in them used to be the site of some small community. Cars opened up our world, but amongst the costs was the loss of these small places.  Of course, some people simply moved away, but those that didn’t went to shop in nearby cities.  The communities some of our grandparents called home have simply become highway signs noting their location and little more. This Americana picture … Continue reading

Montezuma Depot Scenes

Panorama Photo of the old Train Station in Montezuma Georgia

One of the earliest subjects of my growing love of photography here at home was the old red brick depot in Montezuma. My earliest memories of downtown, the depot was used by the local police department, but there are still plenty of people from here who remember passenger and freight trains stopping here in Montezuma.  This Queen Anne stye depot was built in 1890 to replace an earlier depot on the same site.  There are two rail lines running through town and there were once two depots as well.  The … Continue reading
