Reclamation and Restoration

During Kathy’s and my week long venturings through western North Carolina, we stumbled into a 75-year old picker’s property.  Only in the south could one be driving through the most rural of areas taking in the autumn beauty one minute, and then a local resident invite us into his home after having only met us with […]

Western North Carolina Color #2 – Structures

This area of the Blue Ridge Mountains is replete with the beauty of decay … old barns, houses, and “Americana” at almost every hidden corner.  Per my previous post, leaf colors were unpredictable and  “hit and miss” (mostly “miss”, here).

Atlanta’s Marriott Marquis

Painter’s Canvas in Blue – Asheville Alleys #4

It did not strike me until a couple of days after editing this image that the mops and mop buckets mimic the idea of brushes and bottles of paint against the canvas. Sometimes images take on different points of view over time and with multiple viewings.  The artistic alleyways of Asheville are so much fun […]
