Week 52 – #A2. Circle(s)

I saved this post until the end because I kept looking for circles but could not find any I liked. I am not a huge shopper but I am fascinated with our new mall and its architecture. One day I looked up (who can help but look up) at the angles and circles and took a quick photo.

Week 51 – #45. Statues

There are many statues in St. Augustine but when I saw this one, The Foot Soldiers for Freedom and Justice, it spoke to me.

Week 50 – #46 Still Life

On a recent return trip from Chattanooga, we stopped in central Georgia at a roadside stand and purchased some peaches. After making two peach cobblers (both of which were consumed by my husband), I decided to use the wooden slat basket as a platform for a still life photo.

Week 49 – #A1. Blue

I have had this theme on my mind for a couple of weeks wondering what I could find to photograph to satisfy it. It suddenly became obvious to me when I drove into my community late one evening after a long day of real estate appointments and noticed how pretty the American flag looked against the blue twilight sky. Happy upcoming July 4th to everyone.

Week 48 – #13. Forced Perspective

When I thought about forced perspective, I had one place in mind so I drove my model, Mike, to the Museum District in Chattanooga. On the corner of an art shop is an antique clock that once stood on the sidewalk outside Fischer-Evans Jewelry Store in downtown Chattanooga. Noting it was a minute or two out of time, Mike agreed to give it a little adjustment. Below is another photo I took later the same day of my model assisting the sun as it sets below the horizon.

Week 47 – #10. Family Table

I decided to have a little fun this week so ventured up to the Museum District in Chattanooga to photograph families having lunch at a family table. My favorite coffee shop/casual outdoor restaurant is Rembrandts with small wrought iron tables underneath a vine covered canopy. While sipping my latte, I noticed a black bird flying back and forth between a couple of tables and it soon became quite obvious that there were some very serious conversations between it and the customers. Although I was not close enough to hear, I used my imagination and in the first photo below, I imagined the bird saying, “How many times do I have to tell you to look at me when I am talking to you?” In the second photo, it seemed to be saying, “As a Mother, it is your responsibility to teach your child to sit up straight at the table and put away her iPad.”

I’d love to know what you think was being said. If you have any thoughts, please share them with me.

Week 46 – #4. Bright Idea

In 1932, Rock City officially opened on Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga. Shortly thereafter, its owner got the “bright idea” to advertise by hiring a young painter to call on property owners who had barns on their properties and offer to paint the barns in return for allowing three little words, “See Rock City,” to be painted on the roofs. It was a huge advertising success and soon those three little words would be painted on barn roofs from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. It was not until 1966 when the young painter got married that he stopped painting barn roofs. By that time, there were 900 “See Rock City” barn roofs. A few barns are being maintained today by Rock City; however, sadly there are only about 100 presently in existence. The photo of the barn below was taken in the little Georgia town where I was born.
