So a few weeks ago, I drifted down to a neighboring town to see my friend Ken, who has a photography business and framing shop that is overrun with memories and things from the past. There are old film cameras, film, and lenses none of which work on my Nikons. It is a place that [...]
I always pass this field on the way to a friend's house at the lake, and this past weekend, I decided it was time to stop and photograph it. I'm so glad I did.
My view is quite different in the city. In Toccoa, the cows are in the fields; but in Atlanta, they can end up on the front of a refrigerator like this soft-eyed guy.
