Vintage threads

The color and texture of this little caddy of thread spools and pin cushion are an excellent example of simple things making a good macro subject.  I love looking at the small details in things like this.  Things like the way the labels are faded and cracked or the embossed printing on the empty wooden spool make a fascinating study of the world up-close.

Bulloch Hall is full of little reminders of the past but the everyday world of today is also full of little wonders.  Hope I can keep my eyes open to this and find other little beauties to capture in the days to come.

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.
