Do you ever take a picture and you can’t delete it even though technically it’s a dud?  This is one for me.  It’s blurry, crooked, and the composition is a little off, but to me it shows one slice of the world on warm, peaceful, summer evening.  july 13 summer atlanta-9420

Kickball tournament at Piedmont Park–Atlanta’s version of NYC’s Central Park:

 One of the many construction sites around town.  We’ve enjoyed watching a high rise being built from the ground up.  We count the levels as we drive by almost weekly–they are up to the 22nd floor now.

  1. I love it! I feel in love with city life when I was a teenager and a part of me would love to try it out. It’s also nice to see a glimpse of “the Southern City” again. I never got to explore it like I wanted to (which makes me sad), but I did visit briefly a couple times.

    1. I love living in the city, and I’m guessing you would, too. Southern cities are so different from the ones I knew up north. They are more spread apart–there are hardly any row houses–and they transportation system is considerably more limited. You can’t really get around without a car too easily.

  2. Atlanta looks like a really good place to live. :) I love how you find such beauty and uniqueness there, even though you also see the hard and sad parts ot if as well.
