This photo sharing update comes to us courtesy of Laci Brewer. Laci is a photography student who made a trip to Georgia recently to get some photos of as many filming locations as she could fit into a day’s drive. She was able to get to quite a few locations and as you’ll see in the photos, had some beautiful Georgia spring weather to accompany her. She was able to visit locations around Newnan, including Newnan High School, the daycare Maggie and Daryl visit, and the “arena” location. She also travelled down to Grantville, the location of season two’s “Clear”, as well as Senoia.
Laci has graciously allowed me to share this rather large photo set with fellow fans, as well as a story from the owner of one of the buildings in Grantville that has an interesting history, as told by the owner, Bill Brooks, and one that fans of the movie Lawless will also enjoy:
Him and his wife bought the building 30 something years ago and moved into it when they were first starting out. He told us he’d been wanting to sell it for a numerous amount of years and that he just couldn’t let go of it. He got a call a couple of years ago from a guy that wanted to rent it out for the production of a movie. Come to find out, the movie was “Lawless.” He said next thing he new he was standing face to face with some big wig actors. And someone mention how he should try out for casting call just to see what happened so he did. He showed up expecting nothing and left he got a call back and just like that he was on the set working just like that. They thought it would be cool for him to be in the movie since he owned the building. He wasn’t credited but still. He said his hands were one of them that blew up the distillery around the end of the movie. Later on he got another call and then found himself face to face with the producer Robert Kirkman and the entire “Walking Dead” cast then he was a extra on that too, along with them using his building in the episode when they found Morgan.
One of the things I enjoyed about Laci’s photographs is the use of black and white, my favorite form of photography. Fans of The Walking Dead comic can also appreciate why pictures of some of these sites in black and white is enjoyable.Thank you, Laci, for sharing these photos and allowing me to also share them with fellow fans.
