19th Century Tupperware

It may seem strange but, when I visit the Smith Plantation in Roswell, my favorite place for images is the little slave cabin to the side of the main house.  The cabin is plain and sparsely furnished but there’s something about the light that comes in here that amazes me.  There’s a kind of gentle glow that lights the single room and makes the items here stand out.  I also love the texture of the rough wood that makes up the walls.  It all just kind of gives me that feeling of stepping back in time.

According to the information in the cabin, over 200 baskets have been found in the house and surrounding buildings of the Smith Plantation.  Used to carry and store produce and other items, the basket was the Tupperware of the 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.
