Car Wash No More















Pontiac Master Auto, located at the corner of 11th and Telfair Streets apparently operated as a car wash before its new owners demolished this portion of the building. I don't yet know what its new incarnation will be, but if it's photogenic...

Trees in the Park















The trees in New Savannah Lock & Dam Park are still bare, except for the Spanish Moss, of course!

Destination: Phinizy Swamp Observation Deck

From the boardwalk above the floodplain of Butler Creek to the observation deck. Phinizy Swamp Nature Park is located within the city limits of Augusta, just a stone's throw away from the Augusta Regional Airport. A great place to see birds of flight, such as egrets and jets.

It's Miller Time


The Miller Theater, located at 708 Broad Street in downtown Augusta, opened in 1940 and was considered one of the finest theaters in the South. Most notably, in 1957, the Miller held the movie premier of The Three Faces of Eve, an adaptation of a case study of a woman who suffered from what was then known as multiple personality disorder. The relatively unknown Joanne Woodward starred in the film for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance. The Theater closed in the mid 80s.

Sibley Mill






















The Sibley Mill is located on the Augusta Canal near downtown Augusta, Georgia. The mill was built on a site previously occupied by the Confederate Powderworks and was completed in 1882. The exterior is ornate, eclectic and neo-gothic. Textile products were produced here until 2006 and is now unoccupied. Time has not been kind to the spires that top the turrets - some part or all are missing.

Ghost Sign








With a nod to my fellow CDP blogger Virginia Kelser Jones, I wanted to show one of the few remaining ghost signs in Augusta. You can just make out 'Cream of Kentucky' and Pabst Blue Ribbon on this abandoned downtown warehouse - one a straight bourbon whiskey and the other a beer.

February Theme Day - Animals








Three Hens on the Front Lawn...

I was looking out my front window last week and spied these hens frolicking on the lawn. It caused quite a stir among my neighbors, many of whom were also taking photographs of this very unusual site - afterall, we live in an urban residential area. I suspect that someone in the complex keeps these 'animals' as pets! 

Thanks for visiting, come back often and please feel free to leave a comment.
