We are in Atlanta right now and visited the beautiful High Museum of Art. I wanted to see the contemporary art and was quite taken by the works of Howard Finster and Gordon Parks. The former was an evangelist who seemed driven to put his preachings into physical form, the latter a photographer who portrayed the segregationist Southern U.S., yet stayed away from stereotypes and cliches.
This is my first time to Atlanta (I had only been through the airport) and it is quite lovely, especially as all the leaves and flowers bloom. It seems to be a mix of gentrified buildings and corporate headquarters and sprawling suburbs. And I was quite astounded to learn that it is only just getting a city-wide transit system. Hence, the alarming traffic. Enjoy your Monday.
