maybe it's a critter cave? I enjoyed getting out in the boonies by myself this morning, looking for photo opps. #notreachinginthere #hideyholes . . . . #icicles #tinycave #winterinkentucky #allmeltingnow #slushyday #appalachia #rsa_nature

Going to try something new here. Often, I post a scattered and somewhat sporadic amalgamation of pretty photos. Pretty photos don't always tell the real story.  This week, I am going to create a fluid series of posts, and I am going to start with “Life in Deep Appalachia.” It's a place near and dear to my heart having grown up in North Carolina. “Barack Obama strikes at the heart of our deepest insecurities. He is a good father while many of us aren’t. He wears suits to his job while we wear overalls, if we’re lucky enough to have a job at all. His wife tells us that we shouldn’t be feeding our children certain foods, and we hate her for it—not because we think she’s wrong but because we know she’s right." J.D. Vance. Appalachia is simple yet complicated. It's a paradox on many levels. It's the brunt of many jokes; yet It's revered for deep heritage and rich traditions.  It's vibrant fall foliage is unmatched; yet its drab remnants of coal mining  and old factories scar much of the small towns and mountaintops.  It's prideful yet envious. It isolates itself yet complains about not being heard. The list goes on. What you see is what you get. Many homes and yards have you questioning if you are still in America.  Yes...you are. This exists.  Through it all, it remains etched in my soul.

Just beneath the water on the opposing shoreline is where my grandfather (Ralph Sharp) was born. TVA came in and flooded the area with the completion of Norris Dam. My grandfather’s family moved over that ridge and carried on. No reason to be bitter about what was lost. Time moves on, my grandfather carried on, and now I find myself coming to this spot often on my mountain bike and enjoy what is now here. Resilience and patience is part of that Scotch Irish heritage that is so embedded in this Appalachian region. . . . . #history #family #TVA #familyhistory #appalachia #ruralsouth #scotchirish #heritage #tennessee #unioncounty #familypride #norrislake #865life #easttennessee

When you think about photography workshops, it seems like a given that all serious photographers should attend them. After all, these events give you access to all kinds of things — reading materials, instruction at the workshop, the chance to meet the instructor and so forth. I love meeting people and the most beneficial experience for me is to get to meet fellow photographers. You may also get a chance to make a few new friends, or at the very least, exchange emails with photographers that you admire. Lifelong friendships such as this are not only essential to the human experience, but they will also give you someone that you can always share thoughts and ideas with. @WillMoneymaker .

The floor in the kids section of Wells Library looks more like a typical family living room with kids, dogs and books scattered among the furniture. The Calm Companion (a K9 training group) brought two dogs to the Reading With Dogs event in Albany. Kids, mothers, babies and librarians joined the dogs on floor as kids read aloud. Grayson Harrison, 6, is seen reading while Lola, the Newfoundland dog, casually looks on. Perhaps Lola was hoping for a story about Clifford.

Hey! I finally established a dedicated #fredandelliottphoto IG account over at @fredandelliottphoto! Not much will change here, but maybe a little less of our professional work... maybe not! But over there it’s 100% of our professional work content. I hope to see you there! In the meantime, speaking of professional work, this👆🏻is from our most recent work in the current issue of @virginialiving! It’s @dash37board37’s Baked Candy Roaster Squash with Apples & Pink Peppercorn Merengue. 🤩🤩🤩

Chatter is going for her first sewing lesson today. She's been hoarding favorite fabrics in the hope that someday she'd learn to sew. I never learned. When I was little Granny was to busy and when Granny was ready to teach me I wasn't interested. #sewing #appalachia #blindpigandtheacorn

Scroll through to see all the variety in our amaryllis. It's a truly incredible indoor bloom. We grow them in crates for cut flowers and in pots to take home. I'm saving a few for spring bouquets too! There's nothing quite like them -- the blooms are the size of your face! Come to @ashevillecitymarket to see them. I'm here on Saturdays from 9 until noon! 💕

Warmer weather is in the forecast this weekend which is reminding us of greener days. @savvyswann captured this shot from the Brasstown Bald overlook a few months ago and it looks pretty amazing after a month of two of brown. Thanks for tagging and sharing Savannah!

Rescue cat. Excellent communicator. Professional napper. Expert mouser. 😻 I promised he'd be an outside cat. Now Simon sleeps in our beds and wakes us up at 3 a.m. by standing on us (he weighs about 20 lbs) and patting our faces with his paws. If that doesn't work, he licks. He stretches up and taps the doorknob when he wants to go out and meows at the door to come back in. For as long as we've been married (almost 20 years) we've never had any furry pets in the house and I was determined we'd never have one. But Simon earns his keep. I haven't seen a single mouse since he's been here. He's also a warm snuggler on cold mornings like this, so there's that. ❤️ #catperson

It's been so cold that 38° today felt like Spring! We've been going through a ton of firewood this past month, and our frozen pipes have had us roughing it for sure. Apparently car batteries don't like the cold either, and getting out of here in the mornings hasn't been going so smoothly. Life's been feeling bleak, hard. Looks like there’s an end in sight though...We're supposed to be having some 50° days coming up here soon. Woo-hoo! #winterdoesntcare #snowscape #westvirginia #beherenow #appalachia #mountainlife #moodygrams #keepingthefaith
