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. […]

Isolation #3

Pandemic in Blue … part 2 of Saturday’s walk.

Isolation #2

Shelter in Place had me longing for a walkabout, so my son-in-law Evan met up at a local small town to stretch our legs with camera in tow.  The town is virtually shutdown for the pandemic, being made up of small business.  We honored the 6 foot rule, and we only saw a few passers-by.  Long […]

Sun on the Horizon

From the Naples Botanical Gardens.  This segment of a wall of ceramic tiles is a lovely metaphor for the sunny, warm days Kathy and I spent visiting family.  Design is everything!

High Key

On a recent visit to see my middle brother and my sister-in-law, Kathy and I enjoyed not only the family time, but also lots of sunlight.  Our winter has been extraordinarily gray and wet in Georgia, so this timely dose of sunshine energized us.  They had recently finished a major remodel.  It shows off Larry’s incredible flair for […]

coda Midtown

I’ve photographed and posted this location multiple times, but it continues to draw me back time and again.  The architectural lines are incredible, but also, east/west walkthrough and structure of the buildings creates so many different lighting situations, depending on time of day and year.  This was taken on a sunny mid-day.

Marriott Marquis – Atlanta

A revisit to an old friend.  This is such a fun place to photograph, and this time around, it was even better because I was able to share the experience with my friend Carl.  Thanks for visiting, bud!

The Corner

Abstract images have always caught my attention, maybe because they evoke a question of mystery and what lies within.  On a recent walk to my bus stop after work, I came to this familiar corner with an awesome restaurant space with patio.  The restaurant recently closed, unfortunately.  I peered inside one of the windows, and […]

Skies Clearing at Dusk

After a gray, dreary day, clouds broke at dusk to reveal a calmingly colorful sky.
