Entrance Pictures from "Buckhead in Bloom" April 11, 2010

Rachel and I did "Buckhead in Bloom 2010" hosted by and benefiting the Atlanta Preservation Center. I took almost 70 amateur pictures. I'm going to post a few at a time.

Here are entrances from the 6 homes on the tour. You can make all these bigger if you click them, and you should see them bigger.

The Philip Shutze house with stars and pineapple.

The playhouse with goose, fern, lamp, and sconce.

The Clement Ford house, well, one of the garden passageways with gravel, sticks stones and porcelain.

Azelea house featuring your dorky host for scale.

Unknown architect's house with fancy fan and sidelights.

Neel Reid house.

Thanks so much to Atlanta Architect and Atlanta Preservation Center trustee Rodolfo Castro for inviting me and other bloggers. From left to right: me, my daughter Rachel, Rodolfo, and his wife, Kim.

Thanks so much to the Atlanta Preservation Center for putting this on. Here are the ticket folks in their shady office.

Other Atlanta bloggers were there too. I saw Helen Young from Whitehaven blog. She'd seen Holly from Things that Inspire, and Blayne Beacham from This Photographer's Life (In Search of a Style), and James from Limestone & Boxwoods.

And thanks so much to my old work friend (he's not old, I'm am) Steven Bennett for saying hello.

More later and thanks,


  1. There appears to be a lot of details going on in these homes. That had to be a fun-filled day.
    Bummer, too bad I'm so far away!

  2. Ohh man, I bet there were some beautiful sights to be seen there!

  3. Great to see you yesterday! It was a gorgeous, fun-filled day.

  4. You have a great eye for all those little architectural details! The Philip Shutze house has just about everything I could ever want, including a welcoming pineapple.

  5. oh what a fabulous day! Thank you so much for the pictures! Swooning of the Shutze house, of course.

  6. I love the combination of the stacked stone fence columns with the latticed branches...

  7. The star window is exceptional. So many beautiful features captured in your photos. Thanks!

  8. I am looking for other projects by architect Clement J. Ford. He apparently designed a home in Carrollton GA, for a family named Folds, that was later used as a college preparatory high school. Can anyone help?
