Capturing The Spirit Of Industry With Industrial Photography

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: February 26, 2013 | Categories: Guest Posts, Photography

Guest Post Images in Industry Beaches, mountains and sunsets are the places one expects to find appealing photographs. It probably wouldn’t occur to many people to seek them on a factory floor. Chimneys churning smoke into the sky bring to mind debates on climate change rather than photo opportunities, while an untidy mess of machinery […]

My absolute favorite character Cody as played to date is Lucius P. Scanton in “Around The World In 80 Days” by Jules Verne, that he is currently portraying (one of 3 speaking roles) at Knoxville Children’s Theatre. He is hilarious as the over-the-top U.S. Marshall.

Smoky Mountain Hike – Greenbrier School & Walker Sister’s Cabin #WW #nature

Okay, not so “Wordless” Wednesday… This past Sunday we went on a hike in the Smoky Mountains (so blessed to live so near these beautiful mountains). I’ve actually done this particular hike three times now. Once before Cody, and twice now after having him. Although he was too young to really remember it. The hike […]
