Seasoned in the South

  • The Trailer

    “The Trailer” Another shot from my wander-about yesterday with my dad. He was looking for subject matter to paint; and I was looking for what I look for: images that tell stories of the South. Where else could you find this? It reminded me of the Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz movie where Ricky buys…

  • “Young Patriot”

    “Young Patriot” I believe that if you create enough photographs over a long enough time, you will begin to realize that some you make, and some are just plain flat out given to you. “Young Patriot” is of the latter class. I was just lucky enough to be standing there with a camera in my…

  • Off The Diet

    “Off The Diet” One of the things I love about the South is the Southern sense of humour. That combined with the expression “Bless Your Heart” will just about extricate you from any situation you may find yourself in. I created this image in Birmingham, Alabama. My father and I had driven over from Atlanta,…

  • Mushroom Study in Black & White

    I found this on one of my North Georgia wanders. It was a very poor day for lighting; I don’t remember why. For me, this image just goes to show that there is always something to find and appreciate; sometimes you just have to get down to the simple, basic things.

  • 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…
