My photo
... is a freelance photographer working in Middle Georgia

The contrasts we encounter each day always amazes me. They also present some interesting, or at least different images. I began my day today at the site of the new school on Highway 341. The building is still a work in progress. Students will move into the school in late January. It is a colorful building, very modern. The top photo is of one of the light fixtures hanging in the front entrance way. Like I said, very modern.

I left the new school and went by the old high school building. It was built in the 1920’s and has been sitting vacant for some time. Fort Valley State University is going to renovate the building and use it as home for their nursing school. I wanted some before pictures. It is a real contrast to the modern elementary school.

Old buildings have character that is sadly so often missing in our newer structures. The stairway leading to the second floor is awesome. Even in its present condition, the old auditorium makes for a great photograph. A really haunting image.

So many of Middle Georgia’s old historic buildings have been torn down to make way for a new structure when the old one could have been recycled. We should all say a “Thank You” to President Larry Rivers, Mayor John Stumbo and all the folks that worked to save this building from the wrecking ball.

And by the way, did I mention the pigeon?

Hey Danny,
I really liked these and enjoyed the commentary. Sometime you ought to do a set of photos in Marshallville. That downtown is wonderful.
