the roswell project.

We recently found ourselves photographing subjects that don't giggle or wiggle but are just as interesting. 

When the owner of an Allstate Insurance company in Roswell moved into a new location on Mansell Road, he and his wife had a desire to bring splashes of life and color to their freshly painted white walls. They said they contacted us because they love the leading lines and unique framing we bring to our photos. Wow! (*blushing*) And they provided us with a project that allowed us to push ourselves creatively. Armed with cameras and coffee ( I  Someone thought it would be a great idea to arrive at sunrise) we set out to roam the city of Roswell, seeking out nooks and crannies of still objects that give this historic city life. Here's a peek at just a few of the photos we captured along with some behind the scenes looks:

We thought this post was especially suited for today because we ran into a few other creatures getting an early start to their morning as well down by the Vickery Creek Unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. These creatures blended in so well with the rocky surrounding that I actually did not see them while stone hopping to the center of the creek for a photo of the water flowing off the dam of the Roswell Mill. It was not until I smelled their "breakfast" that I realized how close I was to three large vultures! So that's my tale of terror to an otherwise lovely post on this All Hallow's Eve. (You can thank me later for cropping these even more gruesome photos!)

If you're in the Roswell or Alpharetta area (and still reading after that little scare), you'll meet some of the warmest people at this Allstate. Bryan and I got the chance to attend the open house and ribbon cutting with the mayor, several councilmen and women and other guests last week. It was a fantastic experience for us because we usually only see our clients' photos on the computer. As much as we love our iMac, seeing them come to life on stretched canvas was a terrific treat! They arranged the canvases beautifully, each office with its own unique cluster. Thanks, Billy and Elizabeth, for trusting us to do a little something outside of our usual. And congratulations on the grand opening! We wish you all the best!
