Atlanta - New Vantage Points I

Atlanta 2011 Recap Part III

I apologize in advance for the lower quality, I added watermarks. See Part 1 here and Part II here.

Prepare to be inundated for the rest of the year! Hopefully this will be Atlanta like you have never seen. Trying to capture the city for exactly what it is – a large, southern metropolis transitioning to something more urban/cosmopolitan. Some photos taken with an old point and shoot.

Musical Choice:

Atlanta’s Very Own Sound Tribe Sector 9 (STS9)


Or

Atlanta’s Very Own Collective Soul


Or

Atlanta’s Very Own Usher
