Over the past 6 weeks I have been taking a photography class at the Showcase School here in Atlanta. We had to choose a project for the class and I decided to document some of the bodies of water in and around Atlanta. A few examples that I photographed are the Chattahoochee River, Nancy Creek, Lake Clara Meer, the Pond in Atlantic Station, and the Chastain Park Pond. Here are some of the photographs from my project:

Today Henry and I went for a walk with Cody in Chastain Park. We walked on the east side of the park off of Lake Forest along Nancy Creek. I went back later with my camera and got some shots of the creek. As I walked up the biggest blue heron was standing in the water right where I was headed. I only had my wide angle lens and couldn’t get close enough to get a picture of him. He flew off pretty quickly as I tried to get closer. Oh well, I was able to get some good shots of the creek and water. Here is a close-up of the water rolling across the rocks.
