Newton County JawJa


Newton County Courthouse | 16mm, f/6.7, 1/750 sec, ISO 250


This beautiful old building overlooks the quaint town square in Covington where I went a couple of weekends ago for a car show. I only took two photos of it because I couldn’t find a good spot from which to shoot with all the crowd around. Ground level had a lot of car and people clutter, so I just cropped it out and rotated it to make it, hopefully, more interesting and keep the focus on the wonderful detail work on the building. I just love that there’s a pattern in the shingles!

Covington has had several movies filmed in and around it, including: My Cousin VinnyRemember the TitansFriday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. The first several episodes of The Dukes of Hazzard were also filmed here. Practically the Hollywood of the South!
