Atlanta’s Marriott Marquis

I see new things and fresh perspectives each time I wander into this glorious hotel.  It’s been in many movies, including the Hunger Games.  The first image is noisy because of the very low light and my underexposure at capture, but I think it’s acceptable and gives even more character and texture to the overall look.

Midtown Walkabout

Recently my son-in-law Evan (@evan5ps, evan5ps.tumblr.com/, evan5ps.com,  led a photo walk in Midtown Atlanta near 14th Street and Peachtree.  Great turnout – 40-50 people.  So I joined up for a short bit and lavished in an hour or so of capturing street images at dusk while Katie kept me company.  Enjoy!

Tunes from the Tombs

Kathy and I went to Tombs from the Tombs, a fun music event in Atlanta’s historic Oakland Cemetery, a few weeks back.  That’s right – a cemetery.  It’s a great time, and funds go to helping maintain this incredible historic venue that goes back to Civil War times.  The heat was unusually mild, so it […]

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 […]

Ponce City Market

This is one of THE coolest developments in Atlanta.  What is currently known as Ponce City Market in the old Fourth Ward began in the 1860’s Ponce De Leon Springs due to the springs’ alleged nature to cure.  In 1903 it became an amusement park, then a baseball park in 1907.  Sears, Roebuck, and Company purchased […]

Morning at the Museum

Kathy and I LOVE visiting the High Museum.  We try to make it a point to visit every quarter or so.  It’s world class with a steady rotation of top exhibits, and this Saturday our good friends John and Michelle enticed us with an impromptu invite. Enjoy!

Fog Settling In

Project 365 – Day 62 Atlanta weather has been incredibly bipolar of late.  Snow, ice, warm, rain, cold again ….  the only constant has been gray skies and short days.  As the leading edge of a front entered the area today following rain, a heavy fog began to descend at dusk.  City lights glowed brilliantly […]

Fog Sets In

Project 365 – Day 12 Today was quite unique, in that it was extremely foggy all day long.  This photo was taken just after lunch.  Typically in this part of the south the fog would have lifted by then, or else it would have turned into rain.  On this day, it was more Seattle-like than […]

High Museum

Project 365 – Day 3 Kathy and I visited the High Museum for the first time.  I can’t believe we’ve lived here 20 years and haven’t been before now.  It is spectacular and impressive, to say the least.  Our main draw was the Cezanne exhibit, which also included works from Degas and other artists from […]
