Photo Hunt ~ Yellow River Floods

Rain~
Whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones,
and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains.

-Henry Ward Beecher-
For Photo Hunt this week, anything goes!
This is the Yellow River in Porterdale, GA
when we had all the rain last month.
This is usually a quiet, easy flowing river.
Our Mom lived there about a squillion years ago.
You may recognize the mill. It was in many
episodes of The Heat Of The Night television series.
(Mom's Dad was in several, the main one 'Sanctuary')

These are images were taken by Jason Cripps,
check THIS out and meet his partner!

We found them on the City of Porterdale site.
The mill, just 40 minutes from Atlanta,
is now lofts, businesses and yummy food places.
Porterdale is busy and growing again!
Ya'll come on down!

'Anything Goes Photo' see below & join us!

  5. The power behind all that water reminds me of the Rogue river in Oregon. I was born in Austell,Ga. and lived in Smyrna till I was 8. I hope everyone is O.K. from the floods last month.
