Wandering Wednesdays (On a friday) | The Roswell Mill

The Dam and fall creates a wonderful background for photos

Now for special edition of  Wandering Wednesdays.  It was such a beautiful day today in Atlanta, that Tiffany and I couldn’t help but go out to one of my old favorite stomping grounds, The Roswell Mill.  There’s a good bit of Georgia history there that you can read about, but how is it for a photographer?  Lets just say it’s absolutely amazing almost anytime of the year, and it’s a stunning place to take photos for a family or portrait.  The cavaet?  You need to have a permit if you are a professional (don’t know if you do if you’re a student, no one has stopped me).

The mill is a very picturesque place.  The reason why I like in in comparison to other places that have a creek is because the creek front is accessible.  While places like Tallulah falls is gorgeous, you are forced to take in the view from afar where a place like the Roswell Mill puts you right in where the photos are at their best.

Here’s a Google map of the Roswell Mill Location : The Roswell Mill

You can always get scary stuff like this

There's some cool old machinary there, perfect for steampunk type photos
