DIY American Flag Pallet

American Flag Wood Pallet
The Finished Product

After a couple of months of driving by a wood pallet on the side of Northside Drive I finally picked it up earlier this spring and set out to make some yard art out of it. I had been on the hunt for a pallet that I could make an American flag out of. The first one that I got didn’t have enough slats on it, so I now use it to store my garden tools.  The good folks at Ace Hardware recommended I use spray paint that has built in primer. So with red white and blue paint and some really thick masking tape I set out to create my flag. Here are some pictures of the progress, and the finished product below, just in time for the 4th of July.

The Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta Hotel

I love the fountain in the motor court of the Intercontinental Buckhead Atlanta Hotel.  It changes colors from pink, purple, red and green.  With cars going in and out the light stream made for a fun photo.  This was processed in Photomatix using 3 exposures ranging from 13-30 seconds.  View this photo and more Pictures of Atlanta at www.CarsonMatthewsPhotography.com/PicturesofAtlanta

The Atlanta Fish Market

I have always loved the huge fish on Pharr Road in front of the Atlanta Fish Market, and always love the food there too!  It’s a hard shot to get because of all of the power lines running down that side of the street.  I got this today while getting some shots in Buckhead.
