Earning my “see” legs

This photo is from Day 1 of a school-year-long project I did titled Around Atlanta in 180 Days (take a peek!). That’s when I first threw my bike, laptop, and camera in the car and started riding my bike around the cities of Decatur and Atlanta, Georgia every day because my younger daughter was going to a…

Gone fishin’

Every so often I take a month off of Facebook. I’m currently in the middle of one of them. It feels like I’ve gone fishin’, like in these selections from my street photography.  

Shoes

I came upon this scene while Traveling at the Speed of Bike, and had to take a photo. Had to write. I write a lot, plus I’m an avid street photographer, and I often combine those two arts. There is actually the possibility that I’m the only person in the world producing work at the…

Streetcar updates

So you know I’m a street photographer, mostly while Traveling at the Speed of Bike, with some specific longitudinal photo essays where I track our changing cities over time. I named one of my faves A Streetcar Named Aspire. That’s because the new Atlanta Streetcar aspires to enliven businesses, entice tourists, and engage citizens. I…

Street journalism

Georgia Rides to the Capitol. The Pride Parade. And so many other protests, rallies, marches, parades, celebrations, and contests (American Idol!) that…

Around Ebenezer

These photos, taken around the Martin Luther King Center for Nonviolent Social Change (while Traveling at the Speed of Bike and on the Atlanta Streetcar) are from my longitudinal photo essay, A Streetcar Named Aspire. I share them today in honor of MLK Day. Here’s a short video taken five years ago at the MLK…

Next exhibit coming soon

Passed this garbage can yesterday while Traveling at the Speed of Bike (on the first warm day in weeks). Wrote this on my Street Shorts micro-fiction site: It was the kind of day for shedding. Coats. Tears. Light. I like that one. A whole story in 11 words. Am now trying to decide on the four…
