Die Weissen Rössl

White Horse Square is at the center of Helen’s Main Street


At the center of Helen’s Main Street is White Horse Square (in German: Die Weissen Rössl).  This is a collection of shops and restaurants built around a small square with all the Bavarian atmosphere you could ask for.

My image focused in on one of the lamp posts in the square that is topped with four white horses, the namesake of the square.  This one is located just outside of the Old Heidelberg Restaurant & Pub which is the oldest German restaurant in Helen.

This is a great spot to stop and look around the town.  Quaint little shops surround you and you can satisfy your hunger or thirst at a number of spots here.  It is also good for finding a shady corner to get out of the sun on a hot summer day.

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.
