Walking in Prattville





This past Sunday a friend and I attended the Scott Kelby Photo Walk in Prattville, Alabama. I’d like to thank our gracious host Sue Sizemore and those who we met from the Capital City Camera Club located in Montgomery, Alabama.  It was a perfect day for being outdoors.

As I mentioned last week Prattville is a small historic town located just north of Montgomery. Founded in 1839 by Daniel Pratt, he manufactured cotton gins. Although much of the facilities have been relocated overseas, Continental Eagle is still one of the world largest gin manufacturing companies today.

The following are a few of the images that I took on Sunday.

    Lovely set of photos, Phillip. Really like that spillway shot. 🙂

    I love old towns like Prattville. Most have very interesting history and there is always something to learn.

      Thanks Jimi! I agree I really find places like this interesting.

    I just love seeing this area thru your lens! Thank you for joining us and sharing your unique perspective. I definitely plan to visit this blog frequently!

      Thank you Sue! I had a wonderful time walking with you guys. I hate that I going to be out of town we you all visit Tannehill. However, maybe we will run in to each another time.

    Excellent images Phillip. There wasn’t a photo walk near me this year so I wasn’t able to participate. This is part of the country that I have spent very little time in. Thanks for showing the beauty of the area.

      Thank you for the wonderful complement Len. I hope that I able to show the beauty of the South. That is one thing that is great about the internet. We can sit down and travel around the world before supper, on any given night.

    Phillip, nice work. Thank-you for joining us. Everytime I see great work, such as yours, I feel like I have SO much more to learn and overwhelmed. But I also an encouraged. Thank-you for sharing

    • Phillip October 5, 2011 at 4:36 pm #

      Well thank you Rich for the kind words. However, I’ve seen some of your pictures and you have a great eye yourself! It was great to meet you all and I hope to join up with you again.

    Nice work, Phil. These are all quite nice, but I’m most partial to the last one. I really like the simplicity of it. Well done.

    • Phillip October 5, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

      Thank you Kris. I almost missed this shot. Most of the sun was being blocked from that area. Then I spotted this group of plants in the picture.

    excellent shots, Phillip! That first spillway image is beautiful.

    • Phillip October 5, 2011 at 4:51 pm #

      Thank you Danielle. I’m glad that you specified which spillway picture that you liked. Several have mentioned liking the spillway and I’m thinking which one? I haven’t decided which one of the two that I like the best.

    Sounds like a good time. I love the Ironweed.

    • Phillip October 6, 2011 at 4:12 pm #

      Thank you Denise. I really like that one too.

  10. Marc October 8, 2011 at 8:23 am #

    Some cracking shots here Phillip. That first spillway one especially. Photo walks sound like a lot of fun.

    • Phillip October 9, 2011 at 7:11 am #

      Thank you Marc. They really are a lot of fun. Look for one in your area next year!
