“Certain it is, the place still continues under the sway of some witching power, that holds a spell over the minds of the good people, causing them to walk in a continual reverie. They are given to all kinds of marvellous beliefs, are subject to trances and visions, and frequently see strange sights, and hear music and voices in the air.”⁣ ⁣ Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #thelegendofsleepyhollow #bnwbutnot #octobervibes #spookyedit #halloween #artistry_flair #themysterypr0ject #ig_artistry

I’m so grateful for the first day I decided to seriously pick up the camera and begin my photography journey. It has led me to places I never would have gone but more than that, it’s taught me to see things differently. Things that I never used to pay attention to, things that I thought were unsightly, things that were mundane, have changed into something beautiful. And the already beautiful, has the power to take my breath away with excitement. Photography is good medicine. It changes your perception of things in a positive way. At least it has for me. As long as these eyes of mine can see and my body is able to work the camera, I’ll continue this journey. Hopefully always improving each step of the way. Waterfall photography is still relatively new to me and I struggle with the composition when shooting them but there is such a peace when you’re standing there setting everything up and experiencing the beauty around you. North Georgia holds some pretty incredible treasures and Dukes Creek Falls is definitely one of them. : : : #dukescreekfalls #appalachianmountains #chattahoocheenationalforest #amomentofwonder #seekinspirecreate #smallmomentsofcalm #gowildlyandslow #doortomywonderland #aseasonalshift #folkandstory #dreaminginpictures #forestspirit #atlantatrails #wandernorthga #theappalachianlife

Children’s books greatly influence and inspire my work. Whenever I’m in the woods, I always imagine a whole different world of things going on besides what my eyes see and what my camera captures. This image was greatly influenced by the Wind in the Willows artwork. : : : #forest_of_twinkling_fireflies #ps_storybook #storytellingphotography #intothewoods #foreststories #forestspirit #dreaminginpictures #ofwhimsicalmoments #forestmagic #quietinthewild #magicforest #folkandstory #aseasonalshift
