Buried in the forest, North of Atlanta is a top-secret wood shop called Forestique where elves make jewelry. Henry Wischusen worked his entire career as a Director of Product Development at a packaging company. You know...that plastic packaging that kids liked better than the toy inside -- because it makes a crackling sound? Or those blister-packs that require minor surgery to get the toys out? Well those are Henry’s designs.
As I wandered through the ultimate man cave woodshop, itching to photograph all of Henry’s cool boy-toys, he informed me that he’d have to kill me if I shared any of his wood secrets.
So while I can’t tell you anything I’ve seen, I do have a entire box of very cool jewelry bestowed upon me in trade for taking photos of real people…in real places…wearing Henry’s beautiful creations.
Get anywhere near the Chesapeake Bay and my brain returns to a primal state where there is only one thought...
"MUST EAT CRABS!"
Cue the cave man grunts!
On top of Stone Mountain, there are weird holes in the rock, where shrimp evolved into a unique species.
One morning we dragged ourselves out into the woods and discovered a labyrinth in the ground. It took a solid 10 minutes to walk the entire labyrinth and there was only one way in, or out. Good thing I left a trail of popcorn, or we’d still be there today.
