The festival had a myriad of other activities to include live performances, food stands, and dog shows for the festival goers to enjoy.

Hundreds of exhibitors presented their creations during the festival, many hoping to sell their pieces. Yet others were happy just to attend and exhibit their work before the curious public.

Overall, the sunny weather accommodated the festival’s activities allowing it to bring all its joy and wonder to the residence in Atlanta.

Dogwood Arts Festival 2014 Leaves “Sun Prints” on the Pavement

Photographers Notes:

I find it interesting to think that the designer of the gate actually created “sun” shaped holes that would be hit with the sun beaming from the west to create smaller “Sun Prints” on the pavement.

Taking this photo involved stooping down at the main gate in front of passing pedestrians – who obviously took notice. To my left was an exhibitor stand, to my right was another entrance into the park.

(Feb. 9, 2014) – Younghyun Cho – a native of Korea, takes a moment to capture the downtown Atlanta night skyline from the Atlantic Station bridge. Photographer Michael Uribe was there to capture a few photos of Cho in action.

Coincidentally, there was a news station broadcasting at the time Cho was taking pictures.

Photographers Capture the Graffiti at Krog Street Tunnel

20140126_1950PA_005_KROG_STREET_TUNNEL_PHOTOGRAPHERS_FIX_01A_1024xAUTO.JPG

Traveling back and forth across the top of it, large transport vehicles move cargo containers to and from waiting trains. Inside, the sound of passing traffic is heard echoing across its two main walls and three rows of thirty concrete support columns spanning across its width.

It is this atmosphere that sets the stage inside the Krog Street Tunnel where illusive graffiti artists paint their creations.

The tunnel’s allure is no small thing in Atlanta. Tourists, residents, bikers, skaters, and drivers passing through it are just some of its frequent visitors.

On occasion, photographers can be seen using the grungy atmosphere inside the tunnel as a backdrop to their photography.

On this day, a photographer appeared with a blonde model dressed in a sexy black dress.  The bright led light source used by the photographer to light his model permeated the dimly lit corridor minimally lit by a row of graffiti laden lights lining the ceiling over the pedestrian pathway traversing inside the tunnel.

Within minutes, the photographer and model eventually left but not before taking a final shot near the entrance of the tunnel in front of a large “King Gorrilla” poster.

As quickly as it started, the photo shoot ended, but not before I was able to take a few of pictures of the production.

Having been working the tunnel for a number of weeks as part of a photography project, I’ve had the opportunity to speak to other people passing through the tunnel.

One guy, posting a sticker and taking a few point and shoot photographs of the tunnel, explained how local authorities try to keep the walls graffiti free.

“The local authorities eventually paint over the graffiti from time to time with grey paint,” he said. “They [graffiti artists] just paint right back over it”.

No matter how you slice it, the cycle of the graffiti artists painting their creations and the city painting over their creations will continue. In the meanwhile, the spectacle of the Krog Street Tunnel will continue to be one of Atlanta’s mysterious attractions.
