Afternoon Shadows in Autumn

Beautiful dappled light and shadows aside, this upright tree stood out in contrast to his bent and leaning peers.

Lawrenceville Arts Center

Lawrenceville’s new art center is set for grand opening in a few weeks.  I had a chance to wander around the square recently, and it provided a good subject for shooting at dusk.  Can’t wait to see how this evolves in conjunction with the Aurora Theatre!

Autumn Passageways

Thanks go to my best bud Carl for inviting me on an excellent camping expedition in Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  The park was abuzz, and God’s color palette was on full display during this 4th weekend of October!  One can never tire of Cades Cove.

Back Alley

Small town back alleys often have bits of character hidden from plain view. I found a few gems on a recent visit to Lawrenceville, GA.  Lighting was flat, but I still dig the textures, colors, and lines.  I’ve been here many times, and it continually evolves as businesses come and go.

Summer Morning

The simplest of things, like morning light flooding through our kitchen window, can remind us of life’s happy places and the many gifts God provides.

Isolation #6

Sheltering in place has lifted, and small businesses have begun slowly opening.  Yet still, there is an abundance of caution being taken here in Georgia.  I took a recent rural motorcycle ride and stopped in Monroe, a small town rich with historical character.  There was a buzz with about 1/2 of  downtown businesses open, but many still had doors closed.

I love photographing architecture, and each of these 3 downtown spaces caught my eye while window peeking.  Each has its own character, and the sunny light’s metaphorical return of a brighter day was too fitting.

Isolation #5

Another in the weekly challenge series between Carl and me.  I’ve greatly missed the ability to get out and shoot during this beautiful spring due to Covid-19 shelter in place rules, but these challenges have helped fill the creative void.

Isolation #4

That time when you need to create, but sheltering in place limits your ability to leave the house to photograph?  What to do?  Create ways to create.  🙂

My bud Carl and I challenged each other to a given theme for a couple of weeks.  It was a fun challenge!
