Day 32

Day 32

Today was a fun day.

The past few days have been photos of opportunity and I haven’t really spent much time trying to get good shots.  So today, I decided to look for a neat place to go shoot.  Of the many choices in and around Atlanta, I decided on Centennial Olympic Park.  Dragging Will along for some company, we headed downtown.

I love going into the city.  There’s something about all the rusty, broken down, brick buildings contrasting against the gigantic, glass windowed, skyscrapers that fascinates me.  I could spend hours, upon hours wandering the streets of downtown.  There are so many photos waiting to be taken, and there is inspiration around every corner.  Of course, with every good thing there is a bad thing, right?  That bad thing in this situation would be parking…and traffic…but mostly parking.  :)

Luckily, after circling the park only once, we found a lot that didn’t charge too much.  I was actually quite surprised with how crowed the park was…until I found out today was the final for the World Cup.  Walking around, I was not too inspired.  Maybe it was all the people, or the heat, but either way I wasn’t getting the shots I’d hoped for.

We decided to go check out the Ferris wheel we had walked by on the way into the park.  Great idea.  It was both scary and exciting, and I got a bunch of great pictures.  It’s always interesting seeing something from a new perspective.  I noticed a bunch of intriguing looking areas that I want to check out, and daydreamed about staying on the top floor of an expensive hotel.  It was a very cool experience.  I’m excited to go up again at nighttime, and see the city lights glowing against the dark night sky.

    I’ve never been to that part of the US, but it is on my to-do-list. EAch time I’m reading stuff about Atlanta, I can’t help but think about the Walking dead (tv show) ;-)
