Brooklyn Bridge Black & White Angle

New York in Black & White

November 23, 2015 Black & White, History, Travel 0 Comments

I took a semester of photography as an elective when I was in college, long before I began to consider trying to make money as a photographer. The class was taught using film SLRs with black & white film. I quickly learned that I loved shooting in black & white and that even more than shooting, I loved the traditional dark room.

Manhattan from the Ferry II

New York City!

October 19, 2015 History, Travel 0 Comments

Almost two weeks ago I flew up to New York to photograph a couple of commercial properties.  The next day, instead of taking the early flight home, I took the latest flight that I could and spent the day in the city.  It was my first time in New York (other than connecting through JFK once) and I was lucky enough to get a day of great weather.

I drove down to Macon, GA early last week to photograph a property. When I was done I headed into downtown Macon and documented some points of interest around the city.

I took a day trip to Chattanooga almost two weeks ago with my mom. We visited Rock City, the Walnut Street Pedestrian Bridge and Point Park (and an ice cream place). The bridge and the ice cream were the best part! Not that I didn’t like Rock City – it was geologically fascinating. And the view from Point Park is always nice, especially if you manage to visit on a clear day.

I got the chance to drive through Monticello, GA (in Jasper County) about a week ago on my way to Milledgeville.  I was in a hurry so I didn’t have time to do more than jump out of the car, take a few pictures of the courthouse, jump back in the car and be on my way.
