Knock-out red

The day for our photo walk was cloudy and threatening to rain.  I was a bit surprised that I found it hard to find subjects that would fit our category of the color Red.  You would think that bright color would stand out when everything else seems grey but, it was not so for me this day.  I did find some great red colors indoors however so, I took what was there.

Maybe next time we’re out, the autumn colors will have lots of red, yellow and orange in the trees.  Hopefully, it won’t be too long till we start seeing that.

Vintage-style radio

Although I don’t think this is really an antique radio, it has the look and with this black & white version, I think it looks like a step back in history.  The Archibald Smith Plantation Home in Roswell dates back to the beginning of the town.  Built in 1838 and occupied by the Smith family for almost 150 years, the interior contains a wide variety of pieces from that history.  Some of the furnishings are original pieces that the family and servants used and some were added when the home was converted into a museum.

Every time I go here I see something different.  It is a great place to dig into local history and experience what southern life was like for the founders of Roswell from the beginning, through the Civil War, the Great Depression and into the modern age.

Beautiful church interior

St Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, GA

So, I was busily working on post-processing wedding pictures from the event I shot yesterday when I realized there was not a post out there for today.  Being a Sunday, I thought this nice church interior I got from last week would be appropriate.

This is the interior  of St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, Georgia.  This is just down the road from my home parish and I was there to shoot a marriage blessing for a couple that are members of Peter Chanel.  The main sanctuary is cathedral-style and includes some beautiful stained-glass.  I thought this was a good opportunity to practice my panorama skills and I think it came out pretty well.
