Capturing The Atlanta BeltLine

September 13, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

On Sept. 12, I decided to take my camera (my passion) and spend a good part of my Saturday afternoon checking out the Atlanta BeltLine and see all it had to offer. I had been there previously, but just for a visit in thee evening to pick up some food in August and didn't do any walking and then a quick photo photo shoot with my Nephew. However, I was truly intrigue by this area of Atlanta that had been thriving for the last 2 years and anxious to see the entire BeltLine area. So, since I was in a creative mood and I wanted capture the vibe and atmosphere and just see what kind of energy is happening in the entire area. I was really impressed by the abundance of of Apartments and Houses that had been built, was the first things I had notice and then the vibe and energy of all the people walking, relaxing and just overall enjoying themselves and having fun. I arrived at 12pm and decided to have some lunch first at my favorite restaurant there called "Hawkers", which has Pan-Asian cuisine and has the BEST Basil Fried Rice!! About 15 mins of arriving, it started RAINING! But low and behold, the Sun eventually started to come back out! After having my meal, I unpacked my camera and started my adventure on what would be a 22 mile LONG walk (Yes! 22miles!) around the BeltLine. I decided to check out all the restaurants and businesses on the strip of area that I started on right across from the Krog Street Market, which were comprised of a Ice Cream Shop (Butter and Cream), a Smoothie Place, Bars, and a cozy and quaint Coffee Shop. I was very impressed and intrigue of how everyone was so relaxed and just having a good time. As, I began my walk, my first thing I started noticing was the artistic work of the Graffiti that was displayed along the corridors on the pathway underneath the overpass, fences, rocks.

As a Photographer, my first thoughts were these areas would make for Great backgrounds for a Teen, especially after having done a short photo shoot of my Nephew the week prior (only walked about a quarter of mile on one side). Another thing I was truly impressed with was, the incredible NICE looking neighborhoods surrounding the BeltLine, thinking I would live here in this area, now whether or not as Single person, I could afford it was whole other story-NOT! But, I could see myself living in this area for sure!! The entire area was speaking to me and my camera from the perspective of Arts and Creativity galore. My creative spirit was evolving as I was absorbing the visuals and energy flowing. The whole 5 hours I spent walking and taking photos, the Beltline was truly feeding my soul of who I was as a person. There were alot of very interesting areas that I came upon, especially a business that had a look of Tuscany, Italy. One of the most interesting moments, was underneath one of the overpasses in which there was a filming going on of some Teens Dancing and a Little Girl singing and dancing and people looking on and smiling. I'm thinking, "this moment is really cool and feeling the spirit of these people and the surroundings". Then there was a guy in action painting on the overpass wall and of course I wanted to capture him in the moment of doing his artistic thing.

During the walk, it's important to know and realize that lot's of people will be riding there bikes and you have to be on guard as to not get run over and stay out of there way. It's also important to know that you will be TIRED when your done, but even though my legs were indeed killing me afterwards, it was worth every pain I was feeling and more, as my journey of my Photo Shoot came to an end. I've found New hang out spot that's for sure, and it's also spot to enjoy with a special person in your life. After all, what good is it to be immerse in such an relaxing atmosphere and not have anyone to every enjoy it with. At the end of my creative photo session in capturing the BeltLine vibe with my camera, I have gain a profound perspective for enjoying life and and lost some weight in the process per the LONG walk.   Check out my pics below....

Always Staying Focus,
