Atlanta in the Sunshine with a Sad Ending

Hi folks,

Well here we are in Atlanta, Georgia, we arrived and found a hotel.

1996 was when it held the Olympic Games and a wonderful park was built with various sculptures.

Wonderful interior to the CNN building with Studios and bars, offices and food court.

This Hummer was inside the CNN building

Some of the many Sculptures

A strange sight crossing the road, Superman and his Misses, from the camera  angle it looks like he is carrying the rubbish bin.

2,700 walkers took part in a parade to raise money for Downs Syndrome, makes you think how lucky we are.

Sad sight, a baby with Downs being wheeled to the park at the end on the walk.

One of the many tall buildings in the town, love this one as it is round and this evening we were told that there is an observation deck at the top ..... guess where are going tomorrow?

Just a few of the many taken today.

Thanks for looking,

nite nite, Luv Mike XX

  2. beautiful photos, It's great to know that at there are some caring people about. Love Mr and Mrs Superman. and eagerly waiting to see photos from that tall building, knew you wouldn't be able to resist climbing up to take some shots.

  3. At the Atlanta Olympic games they did not release white doves but had hundreds of dove shaped Kites run round the stadium instead.
    Thought you'd like to know that.

    1. Cheers, Stephen, well you learn something new every day.

    Love the cars but a bit big for our roads.

    Dan came from Atlanta but lived here.
    You should have ask the guy if you could borrow his printer as it may have worked better that yours and mine.
