May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

John and Michelle, our good friends and fellow museum lovers, tag teamed with Kathy and me for a Saturday double date at the Atlanta History Center.  It is a treasure.  There are wonderful exhibits of Atlanta’s history, including a tribute to the 1996 Olympic Games, an area dedicated to Atlanta’s own Bobby Jones and his illustrious golf career, and more.  But one of the true gems of the property is the Swan House, a mansion built by the Inman family.  Their wealth was created from the cotton industry.  The home was built in 1928.  It’s most recent fame comes from its appearances in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2, where it was filmed as President Snow’s home.  Scenes included both the exterior and a several interior rooms, as well as the balcony where Snow spoke to a crowd gathered at the capitol.

Everything came together for a fun, memorable outing on a beautiful spring day in the south.

    I was at Reynolds Plantation in Winston-Salem viewing an Ansel Adams original print display a few weeks ago and now wish I had captured some images in B&W. Perfect choice for such a majestic setting. Side note: Ansel Adams only did contact prints before 1960.
