IC Pays Another Visit to Atlanta

IC Pays Another Visit to Atlanta!!!

Well, guys, a while back, I paid yet another visit to Atlanta. I took a walk around some of my usual spots--Centennial Olympic Park and the Fairlie-Poplar area--to what was happening and to take some pictures. I was pretty pleased with what I was able to see.

Now, I will go ahead and say that these pictures are not new. I took them back in February. However, the computers at Georgia Southern do not allow me to upload photos to Flickr or any other site very easily, so I had to wait until I got home to finally get them on here.

Also, this is my first photo thread taken using my new 8 megapixel Sony DSC-H7. I got it for Christmas, so it's not really new, but it's the first time I've posted any photo threads that use pictures taken with it.

So, let's begin!!!

From I-20

All Dried Up

Turned off because of the drought, I suppose.

Interesting Brick Dedication

I guess these people just love their cats...

And Now on to Fairlie-Poplar

After visiting Centennial Olympic Park, I decided to go to the Fairlie-Poplar area. With gas prices like they were and the chances of finding good parking likely slim, I decided to walk to the area. It was quite an interesting experience.

Pigeon

I saw some pigeons digging around for food. Funny little birds.

Interesting Billboard

...Not something I'd be proud of. Still wondering if it needs to announced in such a way.

Gotta love the fact that the Billboard below the "Face the Facts" one states "Paradise is closer than you think". :)

Wonderful photos as usual. Your pics illustrate why its so important that we get carefully planned urban development in those blocks of Farlie-Poplar bordering the park.
