The Big Chicken – Marietta, Georgia

Since we are talking KFC…

The restaurant was originally built in 1956 as Johnny Reb’s Chick, Chuck and Shake The owner, S.R. “Tubby” Davis, erected the 56-foot (17-meter) tall structure over his restaurant in 1963 as a method of advertising. It was designed by Hubert Puckett, a Georgia Tech student of architecture, and fabricated by Atlantic Steel in nearby Atlanta.

Davis later sold it to his brother, and it became a franchise of KFC.  The beak and eyes move….!

We use this when we give directions:  “Go to the Big Chicken and turn left”

I did not even know this place existed until we saw a sign on I-75 in the middle of Kentucky. The Harland Sanders Café, located in North Corbin, Kentucky, is where Colonel Harland Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, operated this restaurant from 1940-1956.

Sanders also developed the famous KFC secret recipe at the café during the 1940s.

Waterfall

I started taking picture of waterfalls in black and white years ago.  We took the kids to the North Georgia Mountains in October and I wanted to see if I could get similar results with the new camera.  This was actually shot from the shoulder of a busy mountain road.  The lighting was just right to get a longer shutter speed.  I need to order a neutral density filter for the camera so I can do this on bright days…  This turned out nice.  I did change the foliage colors slightly and added some saturation.
