The Yellowbook choose my photograph of the Floyd County Courthouse in Athens, Ga to be on the Front Cover this year. This is the second cover of the Yellowbook for me.

Rome, GA is rich is history and historic buildings. This beautiful courthouse was constructed in 1892-93 and has been renovated several times in the last 100 years, most recently in 1989-90.  These last renovations to the exterior and interior returned it to its original beauty.

The current use of this building is Government Offices. This photo was taken on the bridge crossing the Oostanaula River.

Rome's famous Clock Tower built in 1871, stands in the background.


AAA has selected my photograph of the R.E.M. Steeple, in Athens, GA to be used in their Alabama and Texas Magazines in an article on Athens and the influence the band had on the city.  Their first concert was held at this church and all that remains today, is this steeple, known by the locals as TheR.E.M. Steeple.

The Shadow Of The Bear - Published WLOS-TV & Associated Press

The Shadow of the Bear

Rhodes Big View Overlook on Hwy 64 at Whiteside Mountain.
Between Cashiers and Highlands, NC

The shadow, caused by Whiteside Mountain, is visible between 5:30 - 6:00PM the last half of October and into early November. It is again visible the last half of February into March. The 750 feet tall cliffs of Whiteside, are the highest shear cliffs in the eastern United States. That should give you some idea of how large the bear is.

This is a favorite capture of many visiting photographers to our area.

In October of 2010 I emailed this photo to Julie Spiro, Director of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce to remind her the shadow would re-appear in a couple of weeks. She wanted to know if she could do a regional news release and I gave her permission. WLOS-TV in Asheville, NC ran it on the news and the Associated Press picked it up and it has appeared on ABC & NBC web sites as well as many other sites and newspapers throughout the United States and Canada.
