I woke up on a beautiful Saturday morning and had no plans other than going downtown to a friend's yard sale. So the first thing that I did was grab my camera bag and head out of the house. I knew I wanted to take some photos but wasn't sure where. After browsing through the great yard sale items, I asked my friend if he knows any places close by that I can snap a few pictures of. He brings up Oakland Cemetery which is only about a mile away from his house.
Upon arriving at Oakland, I am immediately blown away with the beauty of this old cemetery. The place is huge to say the least, and only about 5 minutes from downtown Atlanta. Unlike other attractions around Atlanta, Oakland is a place where you’re free to enter and explore. They do offer walking tours for around US$10, if someone wants to learn more information on the cemetery itself.
Having spent just about an hour walking around, I was only able to explore a fraction of this place.
I would recommend this location to anyone living in or planing on visiting Atlanta. There are awesome Mausoleums, Gravestones, Skyline views and famous residents (Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones) as well.
A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
