I Went for a Walk – The Way

What’s the difference between art and stock photography? Shutterstock, one of the top 4 stock photography sources, accepted the image below that I made of the old Dahlonega, Georgia Courthouse and now Gold Museum. Gold was discovered in Lumpkin County in the 1820’s and the area became the site of the first major gold rush in the United States. Traces of gold can be found in the bricks of the Courthouse. Gold in the area is the most pure in the world, almost 99% pure, naturally found without alloy.

The COVID “mask up” sign makes the photograph newsworthy. It’s not a photo I would hang on my wall to decorate it. It was accepted by Shutterstock today.

Sometimes the boundary between decorative and commercial arts isn’t as distinct. In my current career, in my daily travels, the camera accompanies me everywhere. I photograph whatever is there, in pleasant weather, or when it’s cold and rainy. I might go with an image in mind but most of the time I just let it happen.

In the same manner, The Way informs everything I do and how I live.
