It's finally warming up a day here and a day there but we had frost again this morning and no rain which we desperately need.  Have never seen the ponds so low.

The MARTA King Memorial Station is located adjacent to Oakland Cemetery in Downtown Atlanta.  The CSX has a large yard between the cemetery and the MARTA complex.

The MLK Jr. National Historical Site is a few blocks away.  Soon the new Atlanta Streetcar will also be providing service to the area.

Don't forget it's +TransportTuesday  #TransportTuesday  with +Annie Irving and myself.  We're looking for your #transport  related shots each week and can't wait to see them. Be sure to mention us and the theme in your post to make them easier to find.

One of my favorite plants, I had the chance to see a lot of them in blossom in the beautiful Yellow Mountains Huangshan China and also in the Yosemite Park California
It is also possible to find them in a nursery, but I prefer them wild

Railroad & Americana Photographer -
Basic Information
May 8, 1971
In a relationship
The light at the end of the tunnel is probably a train -
Hope you will take a moment to visit my online gallery: Rusted Rail Images  

About me:

I enjoy exploring, photographing, and writing about the places in my world.

My favorite subjects to photograph are RailroadsAmericana and PhotoSquared

I grew up in the San Diego area (Poway) but have lived in the Southeastern US since 1990.
I now live in the Atlanta Metro area. Prior to that, I lived in several places across the Southeast including South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, and Arkansas. 
I'm most likely to circle people who are active photographers. Be sure to check out #alphabetcircles for my latest circles of these folks.
