“In black and white there are more colors than color photography, because you are not blocked by any colors so you can use your experiences, your knowledge, and your fantasy, to put colors into black and white.” – Anders Petersen
Last summer I took the family on a trip to Northeast Georgia. When my wife and were planning out our summer, we wanted to go some where that was fun but not too far away. We decided to spend a week in place that we were very familiar with. My wife and I graduated college at Toccoa Falls College, which is located on Northeast Georgia. We spent a lot of time in the area, and we had seen a lot of it. We wanted our kids to see what we had experience when we were younger. We hooked up the travel trailer to the truck, and spent a week camping in the area. Our first full day there we spent in Toccoa, GA. This town holds a special place in our hearts because it is where my wife and I met, we fell in love, and got married. When we arrived in Toccoa, the first place we went was Toccoa Falls, which is located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College. We showed our kids the falls, different parts of campus, and where my wife and I first met.
Question, how many of you can say you have a waterfall on your college campus? This is the real Toccoa Falls. Toccoa actually means beautiful. That is how the Native Americans who lived in this area saw the falls, and I couldn’t agree with them more. This is one of the highest waterfalls in the United States. For those of you who love to look at waterfalls this one is pretty easy to get to. It is a very short walk to the falls. The walk is pretty awesome because you are walking by Toccoa Creek. You do have to pay a couple of dollars to access it, but that goes towards caring for the area. If you are alumni you can visit for free. That is the least they can do for me considering I paid the school tens of thousands of dollars for my education. Below are the posts that show the falls in color.
