Introduction

On this site, I posted a picture (almost) every day, from December 3, 2010 to December 3, 2011. Only 16 days during that period are without pictures. All but two pictures were taken on the day of the post. Sometimes the daily picture represented the day in a larger way; sometimes it was just a picture. Since I posted so often, some pictures are more interesting than others.

After one year of posting a daily picture, I posted pictures less frequently - whenever I had something worth sharing.

After two years of more casual posting, I decided to once again post a daily (or almost daily) picture in 2014.

I'm not a photographer, and most of these pictures were taken with an inexpensive digital camera. A few were taken with a cellphone camera. Click on any picture for a larger view.

Cool Architecture


I've always admired this building, with its offset corner. But it's on busy Georgia Highway 400, so I've never been able to get a picture. But today I was "lucky" enough to be caught in the aftermath of a multi-car accident, so I took this picture.

After One Year....

On this site, I posted a picture (almost) every day, from December 3, 2010 to December 3, 2011. Only 16 days during that period are without pictures. All but two pictures were taken on the day of the post. Sometimes the daily picture represented the day in a larger way; sometimes it was just a picture. Since I posted so often, some pictures are more interesting than others. Looking back, I'm surprised at how much I like some of them, and how boring others are.

After one year of posting a daily picture, I'm going to post less frequently from now on. I'll post pictures whenever I have something worth sharing. And I'm abandoning all my "rules" - I might go for awhile without posting, or I might post ten pictures on one day. I'm going to keep the name of the blog (and the URL) the same, even though it's no longer really accurate.

Thank you to all who have followed this blog and left comments. Please continue to check back - there will be more pictures, just not every day.

Inside Pullman


I was walking by Pullman Yard today (see my January 31, October 1 & October 20 posts), when I noticed that some urban explorer had left an entrance in the chain-link fence surrounding the property. I couldn't resist; I went in and looked around for a few minutes. This picture is of a passing train, from inside one of the buildings.

Sad Tombstone


Today I found myself in Tucker, Georgia, where I lived until I was twelve. Several times each week, some of us kids would walk through this cemetery to go to a nearby store to buy candy or a Coke. This tombstone, of a World War II sergeant shot down over Berlin, always made me intensely sad; it must have been the first gravestone I had ever seen with a picture of the deceased.

Inside Harold's


I guess I've had barbecue on my mind lately, since I've visited two of Georgia's great BBQ joints within a week. Harold's, on McDonough Road, has been an Atlanta institution since 1947, and I'll bet the interior has hardly changed in all those years.

Crowley Cemetery


The Crowley family owned land near what is now Avondale Estates, Georgia, from 1829. In 1960, they sold the land to developers, who built Columbia Mall, a shopping center which fell into decline 20 years later, and is now Avondale Mall.

One of the conditions of the sale was that the family cemetery, which saw interments from 1828 to 1931, remain undisturbed. The developer enclosed the cemetery and excavated the surrounding land, so that the graves are above the surrounding parking lot.

40 or 50 slaves were also buried in the area surrounding the Crowley plots. No attempt was made to preserve those graves.

Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills


Part of a 19th-century factory complex in Atlanta. The workers were mostly "immigrants" from the north Georgia mountains; they settled into the surrounding mill village, which came to be known as Cabbagetown. The workers brought their music with them; many early country musicians came out of the cotton mills; Fiddlin' John Carson worked here at Fulton.

This mill is now a high-end residential loft apartment building. Cabbagetown declined into one of the poorest neighborhoods in Atlanta, but is now filled with musicians, artists and other "urban pioneers." It's still a very interesting neighborhood, filled with wooden frame houses and narrow streets.

Zenith/RCA Victor


In the eleven years I've been walking past this building on DeKalb Avenue in Atlanta, I had never noticed the remnants of the sign that reveals that it used to house a television repair shop.

Bats live in the eaves of our attic vent (which has a screen). We don't mind - since they've moved in, we haven't had a mosquito problem.
