This was probably part of Midway Motors which may have been used for storing parts or cars maybe – It is located off Hwy 17 in Toccoa, GA. I took 3 photographs with my Canon Rebel XTi – 3 photos with -1, 0, +1 exposures, combined them using Photomatix Pro 4.1 with the Grunge settings, tweaked a bit and smoothed.

I am The Accidental Photographer – anything you see here that you like is a product of my curiosity and creative mind, and the photography I have very much learned by trial and error. Please feel to critique as I have no other way to learn otherwise!

I’ve had my very own “real” camera for 1 year – and I’ve loved every day of them

    I like the way this building blends into the surroundings. Nice treatment.

  • Well thank you very much Richard – I caught the morning light on this one. It is usually evening light, but I like how it turned out.
