Wanderings, Part One

Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, and Old Fourth Ward - 03/13/07


Art deco detail, Plaza shopping center


Didn't stop to check the size, but there is one large set of bosoms going unsheathed around Atlanta today




Purple seems to be the thing in Atlanta this year -- just one of several homes/businesses that has a recent coat of purple/lavender paint















Immediately after taking the last picture there, a pickup truck pulled up to me, and a large angry man leaned out the window -- "Excuse me, why the fuck are you photographing my house?" I didn't think it wise to say "I take pictures of shitty buildings," but given the neighborhood, also wanted to make it clear that I wasn't acting in a law enforcement capacity. Thankfully, the excuse I gave -- something about taking pictures of interesting buildings -- satisfied him, and my ass remained unkicked. I didn't take any more photos of houses/apartments today.

You mean you didn't reply with "someone actually lives here?"

No, he didn't. And that's why he's still alive to tell the tale!

Yeah- I figured polite, discreet, and getting the hell out of there were the best options.

at least you didn't get asked, "why the hell are you taking a picture of my bra?" talk about your awkward convos.

Great work man. Glad to see the ghettorazzi is growing. ;) Take care!

BTB- You did the right thing. No need to lose your camera or get hurt by being brutally honest about something they already know...
