I'm not a trained or professional photographer by any measure. However, I love that I get live in a time where I have what were once professional grade camera and photo editing software in my pocket.

Atlanta is no Las Vegas or Phoenix. But it’s surprisingly sunny & clear. We have more clear days than Miami, and way more sun than northern cities. Like many other things (ie, density, greenspace, jobs, transit, tech jobs), Atlanta strikes the right balance. It’s on the end of the spectrum that we want that we want in a city.

I live 3 miles from the Georgia State Capitol and work about 1/2 mile from it, so I see it pretty much everyday. This is also my first winter living and working so close to the Capitol, so I’ve been getting used dealing with the influx of staffers, Representatives and Senators to the Assembly (their annual session lasts from January to March).
Either way, I took this photo while out on a run. Although the Capitol building is relatively new (built in 1889), it still an interesting building with some cool factoids about it. Here’s what I’ve learned while running, walking, busing and driving by – [Read more…]
