Seasoned in the South

  • Baptist Court

    “Baptist Court” The one thing you will see everywhere in the South, be it small or large communities, is churches. And they all focus on “youth”. I do not know if youth is a noun in the northern states, but it is in the south. It has always sounded odd to me when used in…

  • Long Gone

    I thought it was about time to post an image that most of the world thinks is The South. And this is certainly part of the story. This old home sits on main street Adairsville, Georgia. I don’t know anything about it except that it is old, and those days are gone; hence the name…

  • Straw Barn

    “StrawBarn” I’ve seen so many photographs of bailed hay I almost didn’t create this one but I decided the barn rafters, interior light, and texture might save it from mediocre repetition. Yes, or no?                                          …

  • Grapevines In Snow

    “Grapevines In Snow” It doesn’t snow often in Georgia, so when it does I always like to make the best of it. Actually, it snows so infrequently that just the mention of the possibility sends most everyone scrambling to the grocery stores for provisions to survive the onslaught. Milk and eggs go quickly but the…

  • How Is It For You?

    As always, Eudora Welty cuts right to the chase. I found this for the first time today and it just explains making photo’s for me that is so true, but I could never explain as eloquently: “Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to…

  • “On Old 64”

    “On Old 64” I found this old barn during one of my back roads wanders. I especially liked the way the light was illuminating the scene for me; the way the lichen covered fence served to draw my eye into the scene. I knew it was meant to be a black and white image. U.S. Route…

  • “Horns”

    “Horns” is an original photograph by Todd Suttles Last year while attending Slow Exposures 2017 I stumbled upon this old abandoned homestead near Zublulon, Georgia. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it and it has taken the better part of a year to get it the way I wanted it. “Horns” is currently…

  • Molt Hughes and Baby

    Shady Grove Baptist Church, founded 1855 While roaming the back roads of North Georgia on one of my photo explorations I found a very narrow, pitted dirt road. Something was just calling to me that day and I must have gone on for eight or nine miles, seeing nothing but woods and worsening road conditions. I…

  • “Tri-County Buffet”

    “Tri-County Buffet” is another image from my Tri-County Dirt Race Track project titled “Red Dirt”; the post on January 7, 2018, “Double 00” is another. As I explained in that post “My intent for this project is to capture and convey a culture I completely stumbled upon on one of my walkabouts in North Georgia.…
