Today’s Photo: Hidden by Grass
North Georgia is full of all kinds of barns. I found this one in the Ellijay area a few weeks ago. It looks like the owner likes cutting grass about as much as I do. It gives a little character to the dilapidated looks of the barn.
Today’s Photo: Old Railroad Bridge / Rome, Georgia
So, a trip to Berry College would not be right without staying around for a jaunt in downtown Rome. Last fall, I decided to try to make it back by Rome at night. I thought all the old building would look beautiful. I expected more light and was disappointed. However, driving around, I ran across this pedestrian bridge at the intersection of the Oostanaula and Etowah rivers. It took a few minutes to find a good spot for the reflections.
Today’s Photo: A Proud Father
I am a person who is not caught up on “things”. That makes it very difficult when it comes to birthdays, Christmas, Fathers Day, Etc. When asked what I want, my reply is almost always, “nothing”. It drives my wife nuts and we have spoke of it in the past. My response is that I would rather make memories than have stuff. Hence this site.
So, for Fathers Day this year, I asked to take the kids on a photo shoot. We went to Berry College, probably one of the most beautiful college campus’ in the world. And of course, my wife made me get in a couple of the photos too.
Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there too!
Today’s Photo: Random Flower Bed
I think builders compete with each other to construct and decorate their buildings. That includes the landscaping and sometimes they come up with some interesting stuff. This was just a random flower bed in Midtown Atlanta. I’m sure it has some significance since it was designed around a large statue looking thing. I thought the flowers were more picturesque than the statue though.
Today’s Photo: Echinacea
This is another of the flowers on the property. I had no idea what type of flower it is. That is, until Google. I guess this is the most known flower with pink petals and an orange center. Regardless of the name, it is still a beautiful flower.
Today’s Photo: The Rapids
I grew up kayaking in the Appalachian mountains, so water is like a second home to me. Whenever I get the chance to go wading or paddling, I take it. This rapid is on a little creek in the middle of nowhere in the North Georgia mountains. A wonderful place to sit on a rock and dangle your legs in the flowing water.
Today’s Photo: Antique
When I was growing up, the common definition for antique was that something was over 20 years old. Now that I have passed that mark by a good margin, I believe my definition of antique is changing. I think of antique as something that was old when I was 20. It seems to keep me from getting too old. That lasts right until I speak with someone about an event or person that was significant in my youth and they have no clue as to whom I am talking about. Hopefully, I have not made too many people feel too old today.
Today’s Photo: Fireworks Over Market Street
It’s almost that time again. Time for fireworks and celebration. Two summers ago, I photographed the Fireworks display on Lake Allatoona and then last year, I went to both Lake Arrowhead and Chattanooga. This is another shot I took while at Pops on the River in Chattanooga. I think this year may be a return to Pops because it was so much fun last year.
Today’s Photo: The Pacific
I happen to be one of those fortunate people that has been to both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. I made that trip for the first time several years ago to the San Diego area of California. I made it to La Jolla cove one afternoon and got a few shots of the water crashing on the rocks.
Today’s Photo: Afternoon at the Observatory
The grounds are so manicured at the Tellus Science Museum, that there are very few bad angles for photography. I shot this one last spring on our first trip to the Tellus. Since then, I have had the pleasure of visiting many times. The best happen to be when this building is open. Like it was for the National Astronomy Day.
