A 52-Week Photo Journey

… Mary Nell Moore's Photography


Week 15 – #50 Up Close

A visit to Chattanooga would not be complete without a visit to the local Waffle House to check on the groundhogs who have dens in the rocky hillside behind the restaurant. Saying they’re fat is an understatement. The people who eat regularly at the Waffle House know about them and give leftover waffles and bread to them which, in my opinion, is not a good thing since it makes them dependent. On this day, I walked behind the restaurant with my camera to photograph them. They are not at all afraid of people and this one walked up close to me waiting for a handout, which I, of course, had handy. 🙂 Up on his hind legs he stood and gently took the bread from my hand.

52. A Calm Moment

If you have been driving around lately, I know you have seen them standing on street corners. As I drove downtown yesterday, in the vicinity of Marina Jack’s, this guy caught my eye as he and his best buddy were sharing a calm moment in the warm sunshine.
