    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    The Battle of Kettle Creek was one of the most significant battles in GA during the Revolutionary War. The Kettle Creek Battleground Historic Site is nestled between Athens and Augusta GA and is rather off the beaten path, especially considering the wealth of Civil War historical sites nearby in Washington, GA (where the Confederacy was dissolved and the Civil War effectively ended).

    I visited the site today and discovered it to be quite fascinating, especially the graves. Apparently after the battle, the deceased were buried in shallow graves right where they had fallen. In 2016 an archaeological survey was performed where they identified about two dozen grave sites, which were marked with bright white crosses. These crosses dot the marshy, waterlogged area of Kettle Creek among the tall slash pines, themselves like grave markers, especially in the vicinity of a summit area where an old church once stood (this area itself was home to a long-forgotten cemetery). From the summit one can see the crosses glinting in the morning sun in the lower marshland which is impassable without good boots and perhaps a machete.

    I made a number of photographs but was quite happy with this one, which I definitely will be printing in the darkroom.

    One more image to show how the crosses can be found out in the swamp. I didn't have anything longer than 35mm on me, but next time I travel through I am definitely going to bring a 4x5 and probably a few longer lenses to play with compositions - this is heavily cropped:

    Bryan, that first one is evocative.

    Thanks Peter!

    Here's something different. This is my friend Christian, marking up a score while we worked on a recording project of new, never-before-recorded compositions with one of the regional symphonies in GA. We had an exciting weekend of sessions and a concert with 26 microphones on stage.

    Bryan I find it interesting we both made images in dim art studios.
