For this year I was privileged to cover the city’s tree lighting event officially. It was especially cool as I was able to arrive early enough to get some shots of the interior of city hall, all decorated for the holiday. On the gear side this was also my first excursion with my new D750 which completely aced the low […]

Duluth Tree Lighting, 2015

In the winter of 2008 I joined a group of photographer/explorers to tour and document the old City Hall East building in Atlanta, GA. It was just purchased by the Morsberger Group and was to set in motion a revitalization of the Old Fourth Ward icon which originally existed as a Sears Roebuck & Co. merchandise warehouse, catalog fulfillment center, and […]

Waking a Leviathan

Just before Thanksgiving we took a family vacation up to Asheville, NC to visit the Biltmore Estate for one of their holiday lights tour. This was our first trip to the area, and covered a few scenic stops along the way at various waterfalls. The house itself was spectacular, both in architectural and decorative aspects. On this trip I also […]

Asheville-Biltmore, 2015

In a last-ditch effort to see the fall leaves, we took our first trip to Gibbs Gardens. It was touted as one of the last weekends to see the Japanese Maples, and they were truly beautiful. For the most part it was definitely too late in the season to really see the peak color, but even so late in the […]

Gibbs Gardens, Fall 2015

One of the last food truck events in Duluth for 2015 was also one of the more interesting. This was one of the Duluth Fine Art League’s annual art walk events, which showcased many local artists. For some it meant just showing off their past work, but for many others it meant doing their craft out in the open or […]

Food Trucks and Art Walk

Our first visit to Camp Misty Mountain for the Girl Scouts Mountain Jubilee event.

Camp Misty Mountain, 2015

It was raining for weeks it seemed, and I had not left the house for anything interesting. Then I got a call from a friend about an opportunity to explore an old high school in south Georgia. He knew the developer getting ready to renovate the building, and we had full permission to document whatever we wanted before they removed […]

Former Girl’s School

Attending the county fair is the one event that seems to officially call the end to summer. It’s usually hot, even in September, so late afternoon and early evening end up being the best time to go. This year landed me my most favorite shot ever from the ferris wheel, a massive panorama that can only be appreciated in it’s […]

Gwinnett County Fair, 2015

The official opening of Ponce City Market was bumped out to early 2016, but the food hall officially opened in September of 2015. This was certainly enough to start drawing in the crowds who were curious enough to try some fairly exotic foods and see what had become of the old Sears building. At first only cell phones were allowed, […]

Ponce City Market, Fall 2015

Local band Yacht Rock Schooner was the next big act for the Summer Concert Series in Duluth. Pulling from a library of songs that even I was mostly familiar with, they pleased the crowd with classics from the 70’s and 80’s. Building on a nautical theme, folks with tables decorated in style and 2 winners were crowned: the “I love […]
