I took these photographs awhile back (and some I may have posted previously), but I wanted to group these together in a post because they tell everyday stories about Piedmont Park. In addition, I feel as if these photographs are echoes of past histories appropriated into photographs of a contemporary culture. In other words, I find these photographs very telling of a park that has played a prominent role throughout Atlanta’s history and ever-changing landscape. It has remained pretty much the same (with a few tweaks here and there) and is still being loved, preserved and enjoyed by contemporary society. Which, is unusual for Atlanta; a city whose history has been covered up by development after development over the years… if only we could see remnants of the Old Peachtree Street during the Civil War era. Anyways, I chose a more artistic approach in terms of editingthis time. I wanted to feel that juxtaposition between the old and new within each, singular view of the park. I took these photographs as I walked around the park, so they aren’t all from the same spot. For those of you who have never been to Piedmont Park before, the park is fairly large… or, at least it’s the biggest park I’ve been to. 🙂 I wish I could transport back in time and witness people floating in boats upon the lake. Nowadays, there are different rules and different sources for entertainment… but, it’s the same land. And, what a beautiful piece of property it is! I hope you enjoy these photographs. 🙂
