When I was in high school, a friend introduced me to Cochran's Mill located south of Atlanta near Fairburn. It was my first waterfall adventure, and I have been chasing them ever since. Last weekend I drove back to that area—a place where I had not been in years and years. I don't even know [...]
I got the idea for the photo above, which was taken at my office, from the ones below that I took at the Dogwood Festival. I never want to stop learning and most of the time, we learn from others. This is a painting of a collection of record albums that I thought was pretty [...]
