The inimitable force of nature & improv actress by night, Drew Dotson, needed some head shots, so we headed out to Inman Park & the Old Fourth Ward (how could you not know my shooting ground by now?) Unfortunately the bright winter light was out to get us, and we were hit with more than a few harsh shadows…nevertheless, we improvised & cataloged a variety of her character(s).

The Old 4th Ward

Monica took a trip down to ATL from DC recently, and we trucked around Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward, crossing paths with photographically inclined cats, stenciled graffiti skulls, & dismounted bicycle wheels. Oh, the places you’ll go.

Emory Cares @ Oakland Cemetery

Filed under: Atlanta — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Cassandra Young @ 12:32 AM

Today was Emory Cares International Service Day, and across the world, over 1,200 Emory students & alumni participated in service projects.  I headed to a project at Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery to fix up the Georgia Historical Society’s historic marker landmark that Bobby Jones (golfer and Emory Law alumnus), Margaret Mitchell (Gone with the Wind), 25 Atlanta Mayors, 6 Georgia Governors and more notable greats call their final resting place.

Despite the heavy labor, being attacked by fire ants (vicious little beasts – we were warned) and capturing a ghost in a photo (ok, so you tell me what it is), the project was a great success: we left the cemetery greener, cleaner, and mulchier (is that even a word) than when we arrived. The day was gorgeous – the fall sunlight elongated the shadows of the ornate graves, and with the cobble-stoned pathways breaking the horizon against a backdrop of the Atlanta skyline, well, it couldn’t have been a more perfect day.

And it didn’t hurt that 6 Feet Under was right across the street.

Ghost = blur in right corner. Well, you tell me what it is, then.
