Revisiting my “Cumberland Island Gallery” for the @GoParks#FindYourPark campaign on Twitter. This is by far one of the most gorgeous and serene places I’ve ever visited. Please enjoy the gallery with descriptions and maybe plan a visit of your own (-: Happy Shooting! -K. Wyatt

Gilded Moments – “Champagne, laughter, and witty conversation. The Carnegie’s Dungeness was far more than a vacation retreat; it was the heart of a vibrant social life, a semi-tropical mecca where senators, statesmen, and celebrities were guests at elaborate parties. After Lucy Carnegie’s death in 1916, the house was used infrequently. Changing economic conditions such as the Great Depression and the demise of industrial tycoons spelled the end of an age. Its history is an abandoned mansion, a fading snapshot.”
“Sure your feet are sweet and precious when you’re a baby, but as you grow, without a lot of TLC and through considerable use and abuse, they may become far less adorable. If you have a fetish for foot photography, submit your photos here!”
“For more inspiration check out these featured photos in the JPG Blog. Then submit your own JPG foot shots, today!”
To be honest, I’m not a big fan of feet, especially other people’s feet. Before this theme even debuted, I had uploaded a photo to my JPG profile and it just so happened to be a pictured of my foot. Why was I taking pictures of my feet you may ask? Well music tends to be a source of inspiration for me, especially for the titles of my work, and this time I was inspired by the song “Tiptoe” by Imagine Dragons. I was lucky enough to be a featured photo in JPG’s blog post “Best Foot Forward” that was then developed into this theme. Who knew my foot was going to be so popular? Haha.

Rural living eh? Well I’ve photographed my fair share of countryside over the years, so this photo challenge hits home for me. I decided to enter “Knee-high,” one of my all time favorite photographs, into this challenge. I even have this one printed on a 24×36 canvas. Sitting in the pasture amongst the wildflowers with my cowgirl boots on, well that just says country to me…
