Elvis Presley Birthplace, USA

A road trip picture. Once upon a time, for my holiday, I would pick 3 or places (in different states) and then spend a week or so travelling to each of them, stopping the car when I saw something interesting. Lots of time spent listening to the radio, watching the landscape slowly change outside. IContinue reading “Elvis Presley Birthplace, USA”

River, Clayton, GA

I don’t find it easy to take square landscapes. Here I was trying to use the curve of the river’s edge to lead your eye through the frame, but I’m not sure it works. I believe Clayton is in the north of Georgia where once you might have found bears in the countryside, but noContinue reading “River, Clayton, GA”

Take My Picture, Athens

Most of the time, people don’t want you to take their picture – or would rather you didn’t- but sometimes they do. As I remember it, I had gone to Athens to watch a Georgia Bulldogs football game (I think it was against Ole Miss) and when I took this picture, I was trying toContinue reading “Take My Picture, Athens”

Fire Station No.11, Atlanta

Two views of the same subject. When you first move to new area, you make a real effort to explore and take in where you live. So when I moved to Georgia, I spent quite a while exploring downtown Atlanta. It turns out, Fire Station No11 is quite a famous building, which is on theContinue reading “Fire Station No.11, Atlanta”

Flag, Charleston, USA

I have the feeling, this could become one of those “When I was young…” posts! I took this picture almost 20 years ago, when I used to live in the US. In the Summer, on a Friday afternoon, I would race home from work, to find a friend already waiting outside, engine running ready toContinue reading “Flag, Charleston, USA”

Broken Window, Lafayette, AL

Do you ever look back on your youth and wonder how you ended up doing what you did? There was a time, when I went on a series of road trips around the southern United States. On this particular trip I wandered through Alabama and Mississippi. I think I may have been heading to Tupelo,Continue reading “Broken Window, Lafayette, AL”

Dawn – Cedar Key, FL

I can’t believe I took this almost 20 years ago! The night before, I had driven down from Atlanta. The last few miles had been quite slow because deer kept jumping from the side of the road (might have made interesting pictures) in what was quite a rural area. Finally we pulled up at theContinue reading “Dawn – Cedar Key, FL”

After An Ice Storm, Emory 2001

When I moved to to Atlanta, I was convinced that I had managed to avoid a British winter and that it would be short sleeves all year round. You know, ‘cos it’s  next to Florida. As it turns out, I was wrong, and it was freezing! I think I found this picture in Emory, whichContinue reading “After An Ice Storm, Emory 2001”

Looking Down, Atlanta 2000

One of the things I love about photography, is how it encourages you to look around you for interesting details. I saw this in a Kroger’s car park near where I lived (very handy). I’ve tweaked the contrast a bit to make it clearer – but to me it looks like dogs face in theContinue reading “Looking Down, Atlanta 2000”
