V is for Victory

Several years ago, I tagged along, quite by accident, with a group from Chattanooga Tennessee that was photographing Old Car City USA in White Georgia.  What I did not know at the time, was that many from this group would also make up the group for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk in Chattanooga a few weeks later.  I got many photos that day at the Old Car City and then during the photo walk.

Riverfront Theatre Complex

Many years ago, when I was in high school and college, I thought I might make a life in the theater.  That did not happen, but it had a profound impact on my life.  One of the greatest things I gained from it was my appreciation for the arts.  I have walked past the theater complex for Columbus State University several times, but haven’t attended a show there.  Maybe one day I will have to change that.

Bay Avenue Railroad Bridge

I am a fan of railroads.  I loved them growing up, had the train table and all, and still have a fascination with them.  I may have to get a table for my son when he gets a few years old.  Of course it would just be for him, well maybe.  Enough of that, I found this bridge while exploring the riverfront in Columbus, Georgia.  I thought I would give it a little old time photo look in honor of one of the oldest forms of transportation around.

Police Lights

I took the family for a drive through the Holiday Lights at Veterans Park.  The drive through was pretty nice and the displays were pretty good.  This was one of my favorite.

The Hammer

Not only does Smith Gilbert Gardens have some gorgeous flowers, Bonsai trees, and landscaping, it also has some impressive sculptures.  This one is located near the center of the gardens.

I went to the Woodstock Christmas Jubilee Parade of Lights the other evening.  The temperature dropped after dark and we did not stay for the tree lighting.  However, I got a few shots around town before dark and some of the parade.

Fireworks over Grand Lagoon

A couple years ago I had the pleasure of being in Panama City Beach over the July 4th holidays.  I was able to catch a couple firework displays.  One at Pier Park beach and then one at the Grand Lagoon.  I was able to get a good place on the public dock at the end of Dolphin Drive.  Don’t forget to check out some of the other Fireworks I’ve captured over the years.

Lights and a Tree

It snowed a little bit on Friday and continued into Saturday.  I could not resist going out and taking a few shots in the snow Friday before it got too dark.  This was with about 3 – 4 inches of snow.  We got another 3 – 4 after I took this photo.  The snow was so good, that we made a 7 foot snowman.  However, the temperature was right at 32 degrees and the snow was very wet and heavy, and the snowman fell down during the night.

The Monarch

A couple years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Phoenix, Arizona.  It was a pretty cool place, but the temps were a bit hotter than I like during the day.  Now I understand the drastic temperature change from day to night in the desert.  While there, I took a little while to run around South Mountain Park, which was right across the street from the Arizona Grand Resort and found this Monarch Butterfly taking a little brake.

The Anchor Monument

Walking around Savannah at night is one of my favorite things to do.  Not only is it full of excitement (not getting mugged), but the sights are pretty cool.  This is the Anchor Monument along River Street.  It is a tribute to all the Sailors that have lost their lives.
