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.
This is by far my favorite golf cart. It’s a Harley Davidson golf cart with a center wheel and center steering. It is located on the grounds of the Chastain Park Conservancy in Chastain Park. Over the years I have hoped to see it restored, but today I’m coming to grips with it being more of a piece of art.
On the next to last week of 2011, our subject in the weekly photo challenge is Stillness. My idea was to focus on the tripod, something I have with me all the time and use on a regular basis. In this shot my shutter speed was 1/10th of a second, an ideal shot to take using a tripod, but it was my subject…so I held my breath, released my breath…not sure which one was better but I think I prefer taking shots after I let my breath out. Anyway, here is my photo of my trusty tripod:
Week 50 is here and the subject for the Shutterboo Weekly Photo Challenge is Pink. This one took till the very last minute, but I’m happy with the way it turned out. Thanks to Swoozie’s and The Fresh Market for the candy props.
We took a quick trip to Charlotte, North Carolina this past weekend to see a concert at the Fillmore. After lunch we took a stroll through town and found this shot. This is one of the four statues at the intersection of Trade and Tryon in Uptown Charlotte, and it represents “Future”.
I was most excited about this week’s photo challenge subject “traffic”. This envelopes one of those dream shots I seriously think about all the time. The timing for a shot like that could not be more inconvenient, and the location in my mind isn’t easy either. Unfortunately it’s been raining all week in Atlanta which made the shot even less likely to happen. At the very last hour I went into Buckhead near the triangle intersection of Peachtree Rd, Roswell Rd, West Paces Ferry Rd & East Paces Ferry Rd. I took close to 150 shots of cars going by and was not thrilled at all, and while walking back to my car this awesome Marta bus came strolling through the intersection and I caught it.
