Barrington Hall still life

Roswell Photographic Society has started the tour of historic homes for 2018.  Yesterday, we met at Barrington Hall to enjoy the beautiful history of this antebellum mansion that was the home of Barrington King, the son of Roswell’s founding father Roswell King.

The grounds and house are full of interesting pieces of history that I always enjoy being able to view.  The interior has many original and period pieces that show how the family lived and harken back through the 187 years that have passed since the home was built.

This image is a pair of silver serving pieces that would have been used in the kitchen and dining room.  I love seeing all the intricate decoration that covers many of these pieces.  It is just a feast of light and texture.  Can’t wait till our next visit!

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.
