Nate Shivar's Photos
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.

The Georgia DOT rebuilt the interchange between GA 400 and I-85. They added a couple of new flyovers.
It’s been a great as a car driver, but there’s also a hidden gem for cyclists and pedestrians. Underneath the flyover on state owned property, they’ve built a nice gravel running path complete with bridges over several creeks to connect Chesire Bridge Rd with Lindbergh – and PATH 400 one day.
It’s nice, new, and worth a visit. I’m also a huge fan of the DOT setting aside a small percentage of a car project cost to support alternative transportation. The relatively small amount of money invested goes so far with alternative infrastructure, especially when you can build it at the same time as the car project.
The Northside BeltLine is really close to our apartment in south Buckhead. It has a very different feel than the Eastside BeltLine. It was the first section, so the design is more of a prototype than a finished design. It also does not run through an abandoned rail corridor.
Instead, it meanders along Tanyard Creek. It has a lovely feel and connects several otherwise separate neighborhoods. It’s great for a run and it’s great for kids. As seen in the picture, there are two playgrounds and a huge field for dogs and frisbees.
I visited Atlanta Silverbacks’ stadium. It reminded me of a Minor League Baseball game. Super chill, cheap, up close action with pretty good players.
The Stadium is in an odd area where the most expensive cost is parking.
Updated – with Atlanta United, I’m not sure how long Atlanta Silverbacks will last, but they were fun while they lasted. They did show that soccer could work in Atlanta.
Atlanta is a city founded upon and built by railroads. But unlike a lot of railroad towns around America – Atlanta still is a town with railroads actually running through it. It has several Class I railroads running right through and underneath Downtown Atlanta. Here’s a few pictures I’ve taken of them.
