“Best of 2017”: public pianos

In September of this year, an organization named Pianos for Peace placed 50 local-artist-designed pianos all over metropolitan Atlanta. Additional public pianos had already been placed the year before by another organization. Many of them have now been donated to schools and nursing homes. This one remains, right outside the Woodruff Arts Center in Midtown,…

“Best of 2017”: Women’s March

In addition to the 12 Days of Nice Strangers feature I’ll be running here, I’m also going to showcase what I consider my best selections from my 2017 street photography album, with a little story about when I got each photo while traveling at the speed of bike.  Let’s kick off with this one. It’s…

Live your life now, little exhibit

I left the latest exhibit from 7 MPH in its found space. As I rode away on my bike, I said over my shoulder, “Live your life now, little exhibit.” And that was that.

Twice-told tales

“Skinny Santa”

I pass a man often (including last week, pictured) while traveling at the speed of bike whom I nicknamed Skinny Santa years ago. He served as the model for a repeating character in my overlapping collection of flash fiction stories inspired by original street photography, Stranger Things Happen. I pass people and scenes from my…

321 police officers, and you

I have been doing a longitudinal photo essay about the effect the new Atlanta Streetcar is having on citizens, businesses, tourists, and the city as a whole. I shoot about half of the time while on bike on the streetcar route, and the other half of the time out the window while riding what I…
