So, this week's Six is a series of photos showing one of the aerial stunts performed yesterday.
This was a performance by The Alabama Boys, which is actually an air-comedy routine. They have guys instructing the pilot over the PA system. It was pretty neat!

This is another photo I shot just after a heavy rain shower. I was so pleased that I was able to get focus on some of the water droplets, and I love the beautiful purple color of the flower.

After my rant about the inability to purchase individual games tickets to the Braves/Sox series here in Atlanta, I begrudgingly registered with the Braves ticket office for the chance to purchase tickets for the series. Today, I received an email telling me that I'd been selected!
Come Friday morning, I will have all the passwords necessary to purchase tickets for the Braves/Red Sox series and the Braves/Skankees series! Although, I'll probably only dish out for the Red Sox tickets.
Needless to say, the Braves have moved closer to redemption in my eyes, even if it's only minimally -- not that they really care.

This is me playing during a rain shower. We were sitting on the balcony watching it rain. These are water drops on a bottle of water.
A pelican gliding above the water. Aren't they graceful?
This guy was great! I think it is a great blue heron. Every morning he was walking along the shoreline trying to find fishermen. Once he found them, he would guard their buckets!
This guy wasn't as friendly as the blue heron above. Instead of staying on the beach when we passed by during a walk, he quickly flew up on the pier.
There were tons of pretty shells and rocks all along the beach. The storms seemed to bring more shells, sponges, and rocks than usual.
This was a typical sky during our trip. Cloudy, cloudy, cloudy. Although, we'd see little glimpses of the sun. I really liked how the sea is so gray, except for the small bright spots where the sun is shining through.

My choices for selecting this photo to represent "favorite things" is two fold. First, flowers are quickly becoming one of my favorite things to shoot. It's getting a bit ridiculous, actually. Second, I think this is a result of one of my other favorite things, my Nikkor 60mm micro lens.
My 60 mm takes such beautiful macro shots. It focuses in on the tiniest bits of a subject. It also creates some really pretty bokeh.

So, here we go!
First up we have a sculpture by Henry Moore called "Goslar Warrior". Most of Moore sculptures are bronze, and this one was created in 1973-1974. This sculpture is part of the "Moore in America" exhibition at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
A nice, pink flower. This was taken just after a fairly heavy rain shower.
Another Moore sculpture, this one is called "Reclining Draped Mother and Baby."
Lily pads floating in the lily pond at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
Saturday night I found myself at the Braves v. Diamondbacks game. Too bad the Braves lost 12-0. Our starting pitcher, and the bullpen, were throwing horribly! This is the Braves sign which sits in center field.
My weekend ended with a trip to Flip Burger Boutique, a restaurant opened up by former "Top Chef" contestant Richard Blais. These are Nutella and Burnt Marshmallow milkshakes. They were great!
Sort of a mish-mash of photos, but that's okay. At least I finally decided which ones to use! :)

This is one of several photos to come from my adventure to Paris on Ponce Sunday afternoon. Paris on Ponce is a very neat antique store. Although the main purpose of going was to find a fun inside spot to take photos, I was also keeping my eyes peeled for anything I might want for my new place.
This photo is of a very tall glass chandelier. I kid you not, this chandelier had to be 6-8 feet tall!

This large puddle of water was in my path as I was walking around Emory University. I really liked the colorful reflection of the trees and the sky.
And, a wider shot, to give you a better idea of the surroundings.

This one is a bit blurry, but it was actually the only shot of the floors I was able to get without someone walking into the shot, and I really liked it for the theme.
This map is carved into the hardwood floors in the Michael C. Carlos Museum.

Friday night I met up with some family who were in town for a few days. We ended up at a little tapas bar called Blue Grotto. This is our seating area. We had this neat little corner, curtained off from the rest of the restaurant.
Today, I went photo exploring with a friend. We ended up at a funky antique store called Paris on Ponce. They have many, many fun things to take pictures of.
We both had fun taking photos of this mannequin.
Until next week ...
