Monroe, GA

Today I launched out on a leisurely motorcycle ride before the 90F heat would hit.  Something, I’m not sure what, led me in a different direction than I would typically go.  Three quarters of an hour later I landed in Monroe, GA, the county seat of Walton County.  It’s an old, charming 19th century southern […]

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.

ATL Architecture

A couple from a short walkabout in downtown Atlanta.  Enjoy.

BART Millbrae Station

Train stations are always compelling to me because of the motion and energy, the study of travelers, and of course, the architecture.  Since this visit was around 10pm, there was very little going on.  However, the geometry and leading lines did not disappoint.
