Big Gator

This was a big alligator hanging out in the sun in Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida.



Big Cypress Gator

This is just a little alligator, but it was out and about in Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida.


Venice Sunset

This is the sunset looking out across the Gulf of Mexico from Venice, Florida.


Blues Alley

This is one cool car out in front of Blues Alley in Clarksdale, Mississippi.



Long closed by the looks of it, but I just couldn’t pass by this awesome sign. There are probably a lot of memories in this old skating rink outside of Memphis, Tennessee.


Down at the Drive In

This is the Malco Summer Drive In in Memphis, Tennessee. Every time I go to Memphis, I like it more and more.


Pink Cadillac

This is Elvis’ Pink Cadillac parked in the Auto Museum at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.


The Jungle Room

I have always loved this tiki bar in the “Jungle Room” in Elvis’ Graceland. This is obviously in Memphis, Tennessee.


Winter Tree

Sometimes a scene strikes me as beautiful for no particular reason. I really liked the light on these trees along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.


Blue Ridge Mountains

These are the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains as seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.


Cradle of Forestry

This is a cabin near The Cradle of Forestry – the first school of Forestry in the United States. It is in Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina.


Looking Glass Falls

This is beautiful Looking Glass Falls in Pisgah National Forest near the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.


Charleston Carriage

Another cool shot around dusk in Charleston, South Carolina.


Just Before Dusk in Charleston

I really love catching this time of day in an old city. The lights of the ground floor against a darkening background is one of my favorite things to photograph. This is in Charleston, South Carolina.


The Mills House

This  is The Mills House, a beautiful old building in Charleston, South Carolina.


The Old Exchange

This one was just for fun. This is in the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon in Charleston, South Carolina. I remember seeing this many years ago when it was animatronic. Thankfully that time has passed. The tour these days is very interesting and informative



Sand Angel

Another beautiful piece of art at Treasure Island, Florida.


Sand Man

This was a really cool piece of sand art on the beach at Treasure Island, Florida.


Gip’s Place

This is inside Gip’s Place, the last of the real Alabama Juke Joints, and the last of the real Juke Joints that I wanted to be sure I visited before they’re gone. That’s the man himself down in front, just shy of his 97th birthday. If you’re ever in or anywhere remotely near Bessemer, Alabama on a Saturday night, you should definitely seek it out.


Hopson Commissary

This is Hopson Commissary just outside of Clarksdale, Mississippi.
