Midnight (1993)

I vaguely remember watching the movie “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” some years back and not enjoying it very much.  But I also remember seeing the book that inspired the movie and appreciating its cover photograph.  I haven’t given it much thought since, until I was in Savannah, Georgia again this week.  I was looking for something new to do and bought a ticket to the Telfair Museums.  The $20 ticket provides access to the Telfair Academy, the Jepson Center, and the Owens-Thomas House.  It was in the Jepson Center, a small contemporary art gallery, that the original “Bird Girl” statue was standing.

More Country Churches

Over the past few weeks I’ve had a few days here and there for weekend travel, and churches are a theme that I usually can add to as I drive around most locations.  For example, on a recent long weekend in southern Georgia I shot over three dozen rural churches and then several more on Christmas weekend trip in Florida.

Smokies Spring

The Smoky Mountains in Spring are usually a safe bet for a productive photography trip.  From the heavier flowing falls, the wildflowers and possible sightings of recently born animals, there are plenty of subjects to focus a lens on.
