The end of winter here in Georgia means beautifully warm days, flowers and trees budding, and photography. Gerald and I took a road trip this weekend, enjoying almost 200 miles of driving — and four photostrolls.
We’ll cover three today, heading west from Middle Georgia:
Yatesville Peach Blossoms #1
See everything from Yatesville, pop. 408,
Next is an update from Thomaston, whose downtown square is typical of Georgia:
Upson County Courthouse (B&W Study #2), 2022
That gallery is available
Lastly today is a new stop: Woodland, in west-central Georgia, near Pine Mountain and Warm Springs, northeast of Columbus.
Postal Angel (Awning to be Free)
Woodland, whose population
also happens to be 408, has a gallery here.
Many thanks to Gerald for the company and good day. Next up: FDR State Park, likely tomorrow.
Memorial Day weekend brought what is likely the last of the spring-like weather to Middle Georgia, and while it lasted, I was out with the camera. This time, the beautiful, historic Mercer University campus here in Macon:
That building is from the 1800’s. The bear — and the building in the background — are not:
Had my black-and-white “classic camera” filters handy, too (same building in the background, FYI):
Thirty new photographs join the
Mercer University gallery. Peruse, purchase, or just enjoy.
Visited Middle Georgia State University over the Memorial Day weekend, and have an updated look at campus:
The Wellness Center wasn’t even
there last time I was there with a camera:
Take a look at the
whole set here. Thanks!
Spring is fleeting here in Middle Georgia — a heat wave next week promises triple-digit weather — so took the camera for a wander. Cochran and the
other Middle Georgia State University was up first:
A few shots from Cochran’s downtown, as well:
See the new
Cochran gallery here.
Next up was a brief stop on Chester —
single photograph posted here — then Dublin, where Martin Luther King made his first public speech, in 1944. There’s a little park to commemorate:
Downtown, alas, prominently features a Confederate monument (like so many places here in Georgia):
We’re working on it. Meanwhile, check
Dublin’s new gallery here.
Last but not least, added a few shots to Macon’s miscellaneous gallery:
Check the whole thing, covering almost fifteen years,
Special thanks to Prof. Gerald Lucas for the continued use of his Voigtlander 21mm ƒ1.8.
There was another photostroll yesterday, which in turn leads to three updated photography galleries, from:
Also, a new gallery:
Monticello. Five of the posted photographs detail the Old Monticello United Methodist Church, which is discussed on the Georgia Trust website.
Enjoy — and thank you for your support.
