frogman

frogman looks at a photo of himself
This guy was a mascot for a reunion of a little community called Frog Hollow. The community was bulldozed decades ago to make way for a medical complex. I was told Frog Hollow got it's name because it was a swampy area that had lots of frogs. The mascot, named Clif, told me he had great fun being the frog and their were others who agreed. I just love characters, they keep the world from becoming a boring place.

the last pecan

the last pecan
Long time resident Mr. Hobbs eats the last pecan from a 95 year old pecan tree the was destroyed along with an old building that used to house the local newspaper on Friday. I heard someone remark "we can't tear history down fast enough" and others can't wait for something new and shiny.

Tony Carr Jr.... Artist




Tony Carr Jr. is a full time artist living in the Augusta, Ga area. His work can be found in several galleries in the southeast United States, but let me talk about Tony for a moment. How can I describe Tony?....well words like creative, talented, passionate about his work and smart all come to mind but what strikes me most about Tony is his kindness to others. Former surveyor turned artist, Tony is always looking out for others. Yes, he wants to make his living in the art world, which is tough to do, but he wants others to be successful as well. I've gotten to know Tony personally and he is what we call in the south "good people" You won't find a better guy. One of Tony's skills besides being an accomplished artist is his knowledge of local history. Sometimes Tony and I will have lunch and talk about the local art scene but inevitably the conversation will migrate to history. This guy is like having google, wikipedia, a civil war and South Carolina history book at your finger tips. He knows facts, figures and dates better than anybody I've ever met. I keep telling him he should be lecturing somewhere. And, oh by the way he can tell you anything about old pottery you want to know, he even repairs it to perfection. The Augusta National Golf Club has even used him to repair priceless antiques. He works in several mediums and a phrase he likes to use is " I like to use conventional tools in unconventional ways" If you are looking for one of a kind art pieces to decorate your home or business look  HERE to see a little of what he does.

Memphis Belle

Fly Over
I was shooting a story today about a missing woman. As I was walking through this beautiful forest with towering pines and gorgeous hardwoods I heard the unmistakable sound of those radial engines. I looked up and started shooting who cares if the ISO was set at 3200, I like the grain anyway.
But I tell you what a somber mood today, she's been missing for a week now and her husband still has hope....I hope everything turns out ok.

Experiment

birds at dark
Experiment.... that's something I've challenged myself to do lately. I think photographers need to find their own voice regardless if others like it or not. So go find your voice...your vision...shoot from the heart.
