Indian Flats Falls

Indian Flats Falls (Great Smoky Mountain National Park)

On one of my recent adventures, I made it to Indian Flats Falls.  However, the story doesn’t start there… Several years ago, my dad and brothers had a great idea to take a hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the Benton Mackaye Trail.  We would start on the eastern end of the park and traverse to the western end of the park and a little bit beyond.  That trip netted me a beautiful sunrise atop Mount Sterling.  Unfortunately, there was an injury that prevented us Click here for the rest of the story…

Bridal Veil Falls (Highlands, North Carolina)

I spent a few days this spring in the western North Carolina.  In the time the family was there, we visited eight named waterfalls.  Talk about a fun time.  I also found out that the boy can just about out hike the adults.  This was one of the waterfalls that we encountered on Highway 64.  The trek was long and exhausting, but we made the 20 yard trek from the car just fine.  I was disappointed that the road under the falls was closed.  I would have like to get one of those cool “vehicle under the falls” shots.  That did not happen and we ended up with this instead.

Goodbye Christmas Tree

Over the years, I have had lots of fun shooting this Christmas Tree.  However, each year the family puts it up, the less the lights work and the branches are starting to get worn out.  I have a feeling that next year will bring a new tree.

The Sluice

There is a small park in Woodstock, Georgia called Olde Rope Mill Park where there are ruins of an old mill.  This was the sluice from the dam to the factory ruins.  You can still see the diversion gates in the wall of the sluice.  I made my way to the other side, which is the middle of the river by way of a small concrete whcih you can see in the distance.

I took a drive through some of the back roads of Alabama about a week ago.  My middle child rode with me and, of course, I had to stop a few times for photos.  What she did not know when we left, was that I brought along a camera for her to take some photos too.  This is not one of hers.  I’ll have to post some of them soon.

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.

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.
