Trailers in a Field

Sun Aug 6, 2017

This photo was taken just outside of Vardaman in Calhoun County during my whirlwind tour there a while back. The puddles helped create some nice reflections here in this fairly typical Mississippi scene.

Roadside Tree

Tue Jan 31, 2017

On my way home from Grenada I spotted this tree out in the middle of a field so stopped and took a couple of photos of it. I love to find "Lonely" trees when I'm out and about, and it's often rare to be able to get a good spot to photograph them, because many are too far from the road and require trespassing to get a good shot of them. Fortunately this one was close to the road and I was able to pull off of the highway to get a good shot of it. I liked that it had some other smaller trees and some pallets at the base to give it some more interest. It's hard to explain sometimes why I think a scene would make a good shot, it's just a feeling I guess.

Middle of the Square - Calhoun City

Sat Oct 24, 2015

I made a whirlwind tour through Monroe, Chickasaw, and Calhoun Counties earlier this year on a very dreary drizzly day as you can see from the photo, but the good thing about that weather is that it can often result in nice soft images free of harsh light and often the textures of the clouds add something nice to the photo. My treatment of this photo reflected the type of day it was. This is the gazeebo in the middle of the Calhoun City square, which is really nice. Bruce also has a similar square only about 8 miles down the highway.

Vardaman Store Front

Sat Aug 15, 2015

This was a nice little store that sold all kind of odds and ends and antiques. I loved the set up on the porch outside the store.

General Store Building - Bruce

Thu Apr 30, 2015

Here's another vintage sytle shot of the E.L. Bruce Co. General Store on the square in Bruce, which is apparently now the Chamber of Commerce. I was told this building had been painted over and then later restored, so correct me if I'm wrong, because I love to learn about the history of the places that I photograph.

Shops on the Square - Calhoun City

Wed Apr 29, 2015

Enjoyed visiting the square in Calhoun City. I love town squares and how it concentrates everything into one spot which is nice for small local shops that add character to the heart of the town. Both Calhoun City and Bruce have nice squares that I had a good time photographing. This is a shot looking down one of the sidewalks that contained some of those local shops. I look forward to visiting more small town squares (I'm looking at you Oxford).

Tire Man - Bruce

Mon Apr 20, 2015

While driving around Calhoun County I was informed by a friend about "The Tire Man" in Bruce. All I was told was that it was a statue made of old tires, so I didn't expect much out of it as far as size until I actually spotted it on the edge of town. It was really big! I'm about 6'1" tall and my head came up to about the bottom of the last tire on its right leg, just to give you a little perspective. It was a really cool thing that was unique to Bruce so I was glad to be told about it and be able to photograph it. It was rainy so you can barely see the rain coming down around his face. I'm hoping to find more things like this that are unique to the small towns in Mississippi, so if you know of any places, please comment below or send me an email.
