Delta Service Station

Thu Nov 3, 2016

I'm still going through old photos and re-editing them. It's been pretty fun seeing these photos again and making them look even better, giving them a new, cleaner look. This was at Dockery Farms near Cleveland, MS. It was kind of eerie when I was there, because I was the only person in sight, and because of the lore of the place. I love driving around the delta.

The Recliner

Fri Sep 16, 2016

Here is the abandoned house at Dockery Farms that I discovered on my first visit there. It is a very creepy place, made even more so by the empty recliner that sits at the entrance. I kind of wanted to sit on it and take a photo of myself, but after further thought I decided it wasn't a great idea. It made for a cool photo by itself though. This is not an untypical delta find.

Ellis Theatre

Sat Feb 6, 2016

I took this photo on a day that I traveled through Greenville, Rosedale, Cleveland and Ruleville. It was a fun and very whirlwind trip. I stopped in downtown Cleveland for a while and this was one of the photos I took of the Ellis Theatre there. I played around with this edit a lot and decided it would be fun to just desaturate everything but the reds. Experimenting is fun. Let me know what you think!

Storage Barn

Sun Jan 31, 2016

This is a barn I found while walking around Dockery Farms. I took this photo about a year and a half ago and didn't edit it until the other day. Sometimes I see photos after I take them and don't really like them very much, but I always save them. Every so often I go back through old photos to re-edit or just look for some that I might have overlooked before. This is one of those phots. There really isn't a lot special about it, but I like it for some reason and in black & white it just seemed to work.

Dockery Farms Abandone House

Fri Dec 11, 2015

I really loved this little old house that sits on the Dockery Farms property. It was so mysterious, especially with the recliner parked right at the entrance to the house. You never know what you will see in the Mississippi Delta.

Court and Sharpe - Clevleand

Sun Oct 18, 2015

Don't forget that at the posting of tomorrow's blog, all photos on my site will be for sale. I will give you all the details tomorrow and then, if you wish, you may begin buying photo prints & wall art for you or as gifts for your friends or family... or both. Stay tuned. 

I spent a good bit of time in Cleveland last year when I took this photo and next Saturday I plan to go back to the delta and hopefully cover a good bit of ground once again, so stay tuned for more delta photos.

Abandoned Buildings - Rosedale

Wed Jun 3, 2015

Unfortunately I saw a lof of buildings like this in the delta, although they do make for good photos. The cool thing about these is that they were very colorful abandoned buildings, and I'm pretty sure none of them had a roof.

Cleveland Depot

Sun Apr 26, 2015

Here is another shot of downtown Cleveland, MS. A quaint little town in the delta. Many small towns have kept their train depots up or renovated them to keep around some history from the town as many towns once had (some still do) railroad tracks running right through the middle of town when trains were an important part of transportation. Cleveland has converted those tracks into a nice walking track, which some other towns have also done. The depots, like the courthouses, are also buildings that I like to try and photograph when I am visiting towns.

Old Truck in Cleveland

Sat Apr 18, 2015

Cleveland has a very quaint downtown area and I enjoyed spending some time there. This old truck seemed to fit the historic downtown vibe, so in processing the photo I wanted to give it a vintage feel. 

I'm very excited that spring is here and the grass and trees are once again alive and full of color, which means more travelling for me to cover more of the state. More of south Mississippi is in the near future and I'm looking forward to seeing some new parts of the state I've lived in my entire life.
