My Atlanta Edgewood excursions have gotten less and less frequent over the last year. 4 years ago weekend after weekend for 2 years straight it seemed like I was somewhere on the street, getting inspiration from the myriad of creatives creating magic on the blocks between Boulevard and I-85.
I packed my camera and headed down there with some new friends on Saturday. I was only half committed to shooting anything. When we arrived it was very quiet, and everyone was standing outside. Turns out the power went out, and the electric company were in process of fixing it. I took out my camera and took like one picture of the street, when a brother named Daniel asked me to take a picture of the City of Ink crew. Another woman had already been asked to shoot the photo, so I told her to please do as she was asked, and I'd fall over to the side and snap some stuff.
Of course Sean Fahie was there creating the kind of atmosphere only he can. His bright smile made you forget how incredibly hot it was while dancing to the sounds of Durrty Martinez.
Anyway, what came out is kind of beautiful.
It reminded me why I fell in love with Edgewood those many years ago.
