Belhaven in Black and White

Welcome to Belhaven! It's a small private school in the heart of downtown Jackson. It was founded in 1883 by the Presbyterian church and is still going strong today.

To see more monochrome shots, get on over to the Weekend in Black and White.


Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo before this turkey was savagely ripped into and eaten by hungry Thanksgiving guests! He was stuffed to the max and made for quite the tasty dinner along with several delicious side dishes. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving feast.

Happy Turkey Day!

These wild turkeys were spotted on the Natchez Trace. I believe they were spared becoming someone's lovely dinner today, but who knows!

Hope you are enjoying the holiday with family and friends and have lots to be thankful for. I sure do!

Fancy Doorway

I found this doorway at a local lighting store. Very fancy, maybe I can give Ciel from Versailles a run for her money!

Barn Home?

Does a Dutch barn-style home count as a barn? I shot this one near the Union cemetery in the Vicksburg National Military Park. It's a private residence, not sure who lives there. Perhaps one of the park rangers?

To see some real barns, please visit Bluff Area daily photo blog.

Fountain and Bench

This fountain and bench were also found on the grounds of Cedar Grove. Looks like a nice place to ponder life for awhile.

Spitting Lion

As seen at the swimming pool of the Cedar Grove in Vicksburg. It's one of the antebellum homes that has now been converted to a bed and breakfast.
