Photographing Landscapes on a Country Road in Georgia
Photographing landscapes is one of my favorite genres of photography. Last Sunday I spent a gorgeous fall afternoon in the North Georgia Mountains. My first stop was Gibbs Gardens in Ballground, GA. Because it was such a nice day, the gardens were packed with people. I spent as long as I could there and decided to take another way home. About 6 miles from the Gardens, I saw the building on the left. I gazed at it, hoping I wouldn’t go off the road. I found a safe place to turn around so I parked my car on the side of the road. There was just something about this building I had to photograph. Maybe it was just curiosity of what it once was. I looked like it might have been a barn or some type of outbuilding. I was intrigued by the ivy growing on it and the texture of the exterior. The boarded up windows also struck me a a mystique and why two of the windows were not boarded up. Could someone have broken in? I only spent about ten minutes there and realized I better not keep my car on the edge of a two lane highway, so I quickly took some shots. This image I like the best with the fence as the foreground.
I am glad I chose an alternate route home, otherwise I may have never discovered this jewel on a country road in Georgia.
