Brevard Barber Shop

An old-time barber shop in the Blue Ridge mountains


Last weekend, Joyce, Kathleen and I went up to DuPont State Forest in North Carolina to shoot waterfalls with the North Georgia Photo Club.  On the way back, we stopped in nearby Brevard, NC.  Brevard is one of those small-town spots where people go to walk the streets and stop in the shops while they are touring the Blue Ridge mountains.

There are actually several nods to the Andy Griffith show (Mayberry’s restaurant and O.P. Taylor’s toy store) so it’s not by accident that you might be reminded of that.  The barber’s pole is something that you can’t miss and it caught my attention right away.  Maybe Floyd the barber is at work inside?

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
