Evening at the High

At the High                                                                                October, 2013
Another favorite from 2013 taken at the High Museum in Atlanta last October. 

My photo group had just met with Brett Abbott and then spent some time viewing The Bunnen Collection on exhibit. I am so happy to know Brett. We met soon after he arrived in Atlanta to take the position as Curator of Photography at the High Museum. Brett, like his predecessor Julian Cox, is a very approachable, knowledgeable resource for photographers and photography lovers. I encourage anyone who has not met him to seek him out and learn from him. I am very excited about what he has coming to the High in the future.

The photo above was taken while waiting for the elevator to take us to the parking garage. While talking with my husband I turned and saw the young woman standing, walking, and talking on her cell phone. I immediately whipped out my cell phone to take a few photos of her.

Family Tree

There is our Christmas tree.

There are photos of a Marine, sailors, soldiers, and Boy Scouts.
There are ladies in hats and gloves. 
There are weddings and a church. 

There are farms and farmers in overalls. 
There are dogs and guns with hunters. 

There are daughters, sisters, aunts, and mothers. 
There are sons, brothers, fathers, and uncles.
There are babies and great grandparents.

There are beards, mustaches, and clean-shaven men.
There are front yards, back yards, roads and cars.

There is winter, summer, spring and fall.

Leaving Palmetto

Leaving Palmetto                                                                              March, 2013
Taken last March, Leaving Palmetto is another of my 2013 favorites. This was taken with and edited with my iPhone. The image was part of the Lenscratch Cell Phone Exhibition and MobileMagic IV at LightBox Gallery. I have also used this image in a series I am working on called Embellished; photo transfers embellished with embroidery floss, glass beads, and found objects. Some of these can be seen at Dogwood Gallery.

I had driven this way many times, on a regular basis. It was coming to an end and I had always thought this was a nice view. I had also taken this image many times before -- sometimes a car was in it -- sometimes I like it -- sometimes not. This version became my fast favorite.
