This past Sunday was beautiful. Clear, blue skies and perfect springtime temperatures. It was the perfect day to try and capture the Atlanta skyline from the Jackson Street Bridge. Fans of The Walking Dead (filmed here in Atlanta) may recognize this view). I’ve captured the image before (see my earlier posts), but unfortunately it was during rush hour, so there were a lot of cars in the original image. With this shoot, I was finally able to capture the elusive vehicle-less image. Notice how there isn’t a single car on the road. That’s not Photoshop; that’s patience (and a little luck). Because this is such a busy street (Freedom Parkway exiting and entering I-85/75), it’s a little eerie to me, but that’s also what I love about it.
A young brown thrasher (Georgia’s state bird) doing his/her best of one of the few snowy days in Georgia. I was outside testing out my new Canon 70D when I heard this little guy moving around in a tree behind me. I’ve never really noticed how yellow their eyes are until I got this photo.

This is a photo of the Atlanta skyline I took from the Randolph Street Bridge at night.
It snowed in Atlanta last week and shut the entire city down. I tried to take advantage of the snow to get a few black and white photographs. This guy sits on a post in my back yard and guards our chickens. I thought he would make a good subject in the snow.
Here is my first “successful” HDR photo. It is a photo of the Atlanta skyline from the east taken in the early evening.
