A Sunday Walk

Today the weather was perfect for a walk in downtown Savannah. Trailing a swarm of mosquitos, I wandered into the edge of the Victorian district and took some images enlived with the boldest of summer colors.

Miley Cyrus Finishes "The Last Song"

Across the marsh on Tybee Island things have been buzzing all summer as Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear and Kelly Preston have been around to film the Disney Film "The Last Song." As far as the locals know, filming wrapped this week, so I took the opportunity to shoot the little church that was built especially for the movie.

It's named "The Tybee Island Baptist Church" and was constructed, burned, shot, rebuilt and repainted and then shot again all in the period of a few weeks. It will be taken down shortly and this small lot will be restored to it's former empty, peaceful existence.

Here are some exterior and interior pictures taken last Saturday before the final filming on Tuesday 8/11, when more than 100 extras showed up for a fun-filled day of filming!

Creative Directions

While waiting for shipments of encaustic and boards I decided to get out my gigantic stash of hand-made paper and photographs of Tybee Island and play for the day.

The result was shreds of colorful torn paper, sticky fingers and a pile of new torn paper collage notecards featuring summery, tropical images. Check out these images to see what can happen during in a few hours of cut and paste...the old fashioned kind!
