Brenau Bridge

February 19, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

During the holidays Ed and I took Ben up to Gainesville to see the Northeast Georgia History Center since many of the exhibits related to our family. I remember the old typewriter, adding machine and cash register at my mom’s shop. Ed’s great-grandfather was a country doctor. Some of my ancestors moved to Texas from Georgia, etc. While there we also visited the Quinlan Art Center which always has impressive local artists on exhibit. And, of course, we walked the solar system on the square. We lunched at Sweet Magnolia’s our favorite Gainesville café. After lunch Ed took us behind the buildings on the square to show us the Art Deco era buildings erected by Roosevelt after the 1935 tornedo. Ed is very familiar with Gainesville since he worked closely with the library there on the Gainesville Tornado project for GALILEO. https://www.galileo.usg.edu/scholar/databases/torn/ Nearby there is also a bridge over the highway leading to some of the Brenau campus. I could see a lot of potential photographs there and told Ed that I have to return before the leaves come out to take photos of this place. Well, a few weeks ago after the weather had warmed a bit and the rains took a break, Ed and I went back. Unfortunately, that day a stiff, cold wind kept our visit short. But I did capture a lot of shots of the bridge and one building.  I can see a lot more future photos in that small area. So here, finally are some new photos for you to see. I’ll post them on my Homepage slideshow in batches over the next few weeks since there are quite a few. Which ones do you like the best? Which ones should I enter in the next show?
