Tallahatchie Flats Revisited

This past weekend, we returned to the Tallahatchie Flats in Greenwood, MS. My cousin Amber was in town from California, so I took her along this time. I think her friends back home think this is still how we live here in the south....silly Californians;)

Caleb also came along on this trip, and he had a blast! We climbed on antique tractors, walked through a cotton field down to the banks of the Tallahatchie River, and roasted marshmellows over the bonfire that Mr. Bubba built...Mr. Bubba is the owner, caretaker and permanent resident of the Flats. He is quite a character, and quite nice!

To see photos from our first visit, look in the March 2008 folder.


Me and my cousin Amber;) You can't see it, but my
shirt says "Dirty South." Always representin' baby!

Plymouth Bluff Environmental Center

Yesterday it was beautiful here! So we loaded up the Pathfinder and headed out to Columbus' best kept secret...The Plymouth Bluff Environmental Center. This is a beautiful facility located on the banks of the Tombigbee River, rich in geological history dating back hundreds of thousands of years. There are many fossils and sharks teeth buried in the bluff from years of ocean flooding....LONG before our time.  There are also about 3 miles of nature trails, and the sunset over the river is stunning. Especially this time of year with the changing of the leaves. I highly recommend taking a trip out there before winter. As usual, Caleb had a blast, and I of course took about 180 photos.  Here are a few;)

Kim and Ben (This one is a real wedding;)

These photos are from a wedding I shot a couple of weeks ago. Meet Kim and Ben. Super nice people! I really enjoyed this one, and unfortunately I cannot say that about every wedding I shoot. The reception was at The Veranda in Starkville, MS, and included blackened catfish with crawfish sauce, some super tasty spring rolls and sweet tea...maybe that had something to do with it;) Why aren't all wedding receptions like this? Enough with the little Quiche tarts and punch already!

Enjoy, and congratulations to Ben and Kim!
