Talulah Gorge Visit for My Husband’s Senior Thesis Research

Ricky Nance Literally Facing His Senior Thesis. Polly Nance. Digital photograph. 6 x 4 inches, 2012.

I want these photographs to speak for themselves, so I’m limiting my writing in this post. My husband is currently writing his senior thesis on the rise and fall of tourism in Talulah Falls, Georgia. He is a history major at Georgia State University. And yes, that added a hint of passion to my photographic experience  because I was constantly feeding off his enthusiastic energy. It was a fun, spectacular day.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to accompany him on the first of many adventures to come… a research adventure. into understanding the Gorge and its history. The weather was odd for late January. Warm with gnats swarming around in aggravatingly beautiful swarms. A John Travolta-Robert DeNiro film was being filmed there and, as a result, a few of the trails were blocked off. We did not see the big celebrity stars, but we did see a film crew and lots of trailers. I cannot blame the director and producer/writer for picking this location for an action-thriller film. The views were breathtaking. The Gorge was magnificent and enchanting. It felt like a piece of heaven. The light was golden and filled with inspiration… as were the views…

  1. All are great images of nature, and yes, I believe you may have found the Grand Canyon of the east and you caught it at just the right angle to show it.

    I also really like the Cloudy Sky Reflection and The Scale of Its Magnitude with that one colorful weed?/flower in the shot !

Let me know what you are thinking :)
