Elvis Presley Birthplace, USA

Elvis Presley Birthplace Museum, Tupelo, Mississippi 2003

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.

I enjoyed my visit to the birthplace museum, I had a little chat with a member of staff as we looked at one of Elvis’s late jumpsuits. She was more late Elvis, while I was more early Elvis.

The house itself looked rather neat and trim. I wondered if it was like that when Elvis lived there.

River, Clayton, GA

Clayton, Georgia, USA 2003

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 no longer. I did find some rather large deer which burst from a bush as I walked through the forest, making me jump. But that was it.
