I’m Kyle Troop.
I like to keep it creative and kinda weird.
Thinking outside the box is one of my favorite things to do. Making creative moves in generally non-creative situations usually leads to a good time and killer end result.
Some of the stuff I get into.
A good mix of photos I’ve snapped to music stuff like Kyle Troop & The Heretics and Faraday Recordings. You’ll also get a few design projects thrown in here too. All of these are as across the board in as I am. Have fun digging through my art.
The Local Wildlife
You just never know what you're going to find roaming the streets of town around here. I know the government released coyotes in the 70s. But I didn't realize there's a flourishing t-rex population keeping it pretty low key. It's fun to wonder around on sleepy...
They're almost like ancient giants hiding in plain sight. Just about anywhere you go, there they are. Keeping watch from the forgotten and overlooked places where nature has reclaimed. But the gate was open. And now the abandoned space let its presence be known. I've...
Just Walk In
This building catches my eye each time I drive past. It used to be tucked in a little better with a bank previously sitting on the lot next door. As other structures are pulled down, this spot keeps on keeping on. So on a rainy weekend day, I thought I'd check it out...
Lowgap Tree Farm
While it's always a good time to get to drive up to the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine up at Wellspring Mountain, fall is especially enjoyable. At the foot of the mountain is a sleepy tree farm with all sorts of things reaching up to the sun. On the way out, we...
I've always enjoyed riding past this building. For decades it has caught my eye. As it turns out, I like mid-century government buildings. And I like taking photos of them too. Go figure. So when I had the opportunity to stop one cold December day, I took it. I've...
Jubilee. Ford, not Marshall.
Took a walk around the barn to see the Jubilee. It's been on the farm for decades, and was perfect to playground with a pushed roll of black and white film in my Nikon FM.
Blue Skies & Sportsball
I've never really been into sports. Most times have ended with a mild concussion and bloody nose. But an empty court or field on a sunny afternoon still hits with a bit of nostalgia. The boredom of growing up.
Quality Trap Inn
I miss the days of the motels without the internal, sterilized corridors where people pass with averted eyes. Let's step right outside the door to the room to have a smoke and catch that thick Georgia air. The cherry on top would be the sounds of kids playing chicken...
Private Parking…Fuck Off Please
Private parking garage street photography by Kyle Troop. Taken with a Nikon D750 on a moody cloudy day around downtown Cartersville. The storefronts of downtown are nice. But the spots out back are where to find the coolest views.
Country Club Views
It's hard to beat these country club views. Lounging on the back patio with a roll of Tri-X 400 and a strong drink. If only others could aspire to this level of exclusivity. Shoot for the stars, kids.
