A visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden - 06/29/08 08:03 PM
The Atlanta Botanical Garden is one of Atlanta's favorite destinations for horticultural nirvana. The gardens feature both indoor and outdoor displays, so there is something blooming year round. The Garden is a photographer's paradise, and you'll see plenty of photos being taken during your visit. And since the flowers that are blooming change with the season, there is always a new subject waiting to be captured by the camera. The garden features many outdoor displays, including a hydrangea garden, a rock garden, a Japanese garden, a bog garden and just about every other kind of garden imaginable. There are as many indoor (13 comments)
Collecting Blue Ridge China. A Fun and Interesting Hobby. - 06/28/08 11:03 PM
For some years now I have been collecting Blue Ridge China Plates. Blue Ridge China was manufactured in Erwin Tennessee by Southern Potteries. Each piece was hand painted by a local artist who followed a particular pattern for each manufactured run. Because of the sheer number of designs, many Blue Ridge enthusiasts are "Pattern" collectors. They seek only one or two pieces of each pattern, which makes it a very inexpensive hobby. It's great fun to go through antique stores and find a pattern to add to the collection. Good, quality piece range from 10 to 35 dollars so it is (9 comments)
America's Past is Slowly Disappearing. Will you Help Preserve it? - 06/28/08 06:15 AM
There is an old adage that says that real estate is a great investment because "they're not making any more of it!" While essentially that is true, it doesn't accurately represent what is happening in the real world. Even though the aggregate amount of real estate as a whole varies very little, the number of parcels of real estate increases dramatically every year as the result of subdivision of larger tracts of land into smaller lots. And this phenomenon is not limited to land, as even large warehouses and commercial buildings are being divided into lofts and apartments. County courthouses are (9 comments)

Our American Railroads are lean and green technological dreams! - 06/23/08 07:06 AM
As many of you already know, I love railroads and everything about them. I love the long slender perspective of the rails, the smell of the creosote, and the trembling of the earth as a mammoth locomotive approaches. Railroading is an old technology, employing the concept of minimizing friction by having a very minute amount of contact between the steel wheels and the steel rails. This allows more tonnage to be moved with less fuel consumption. Amazing, this now ancient technology is green too! Did you know that the motors in modern diesel locomotives are actually electric? These huge truck mounted (26 comments)

Cape Cod is a fantastic Vacation Destination - 06/18/08 03:21 PM
With all of the tensions and troubles in the world, sometimes like to think back to better days. I had the opportunity, several years ago, to spend a week on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. It is a place of astounding beauty. Great effort has been taken to restore the coast to it's pristine and natural condition. There are also picturesque historic towns and villages that a a visitor's delight and a photographer's dream. The Atlantic Ocean is cold here, with temperature in the 50's even in July. But the seals love it, and they are a common sight along the rocky (15 comments)
A tribute to my father, Paul T. Weisser - 06/15/08 06:59 PM
My father, Paul T. Weisser, was an interesting and devoted family man. He needed to be. He and my mother raised ten children, no twins, six boys and four girls. I was the third oldest, also the third boy. Dad worked hard to keep us all fed and clothed. We only had one car growing up, so you can imagine how crowded that would be on a trip to grandma's house. We were not poor, every family in the neighborhood was working class, and we didn't know anything different. Dad served in World War II, a tail gunner in a B-29. (16 comments)

Sprewell Bluff State Park is one of Georgia's hidden treasures.

I got my mind set on you, I got my mind set on you! - 06/14/08 03:14 PM
Sometime there is a song which just sticks in your head, Try as you might, you can't override, ignore, abort of cancel the music. It has wrinkled your gray matter, and nothing short of a lobotomy will restrain the refrains. I was a huge Beatle fan. I bought every Beatle album, and learned to play every Beatle song on the guitar. The Beatles were as much of a part of my adolescent life as any other contributing factor. It was with great dismay that I heard the news in 1970 that the Beatles were breaking up. After the Beatles split up, (12 comments)
Big Red Oak Creek Covered Bridge in Meriwether County Georgia, Ga Covered Bridges - 06/13/08 02:53 PM
There is a surprise in Meriwether County Georgia that very few people know about, although many pass within a mile of it every day. The Red Oak Creek Bridge is the longest covered bridge in Georgia. Built by Horace King, a former slave in the 1840's, it has stood at its full length of 391 feet for over one hundred and sixty years. It has weathered storms and floods, and is still in use today as a conveyance over Red Oak Creek. The Historical Marker at the bridge reads: This bridge was built in the 1840s by freed slave and noted (9 comments)

Vanishing Georgia ... our history is slip-sliding away. - 06/01/08 05:23 PM
I have lived in Georgia for a long time ... since 1973. And in the 35 years that I have lived here, I have seen a lot of changes. Some are for the best; some leave me with a sense of loss. As an amateur photographer, I have always felt that it was important to preserve the past, at least on film if not in reality. When I see an old building or machine, I feel an obligation to photograph from a historian's perspective it in order to preserve it. Before the advent of digital photography, I was able to document (21 comments)
