My most recent destination was Atlanta. I went out to visit my sister and her husband this past weekend. As many of you know, one of my favorite things to do is simply explore a new area and find people to talk to and photograph. There was no shortage of interesting people in metropolitan Atlanta. Here's a few of my favorites from the weekend. As always, I hope you enjoy!
|Seen near Centennial Olympic Park.|
|Five Points Kiss|
|Bill and Erica at the Atlanta Food Park.|
|Haunting Confederate graves at Oakland Cemetery.|
|Mozzie, Erica and Bill's puppy.|
|I saw this woman from a distance at Inman Park. She was making jewelry out of recycled and found materials.|
|She had one of the kindest faces I've ever seen. I had to get through a crowd of rowdy homeless people to approach her but I really wanted the shot. |
She took off before I could get her name but I really love this one.
|Steve, the first tattoo I noticed was the "Sink" or "Swim" on his hands.|
|Steve was formerly homeless and in a train gang. Before he quit drinking, he said he was consuming half a gallon of whiskey every day. Now he's working in construction.|
|Bill, doing his thing.|
|Digger. He was hesitant at first to let me take his photo but he warmed up to me after a few minutes. |
Digger was kind and polite, but one of the most heartbreakingly defeated looking homeless people I've met.
|The bird's name is Chiquita, like the bananas.|
|These two have been together for 14 years.|
