Photo of the Week: Gorge

IMG_8087Atlanta, USA

This week, I dug up some photos from our trip to Atlanta a few years ago.  Since we rented a car, we decided to drive out to Tallulah Gorge for a short day-hike.  This beautiful destination, filled with waterfalls, rock outcrops, and river cascades is one of the most popular trails in Georgia.  The easy to follow 2 mile trail takes you across a suspension bridge, down towards the gorge and back out again. 

Every week, I’ll share a photo with you from my adventures around the world and at home.  Most of my photos have little or no post processing.  If you would like to see more, please click the Follow button.

Atlanta might be land locked, but in the center of the city is one of the largest aquariums in the world; housing more than 10 million gallons of water, and home to tens of thousands of fish and other sea creatures representing several hundred species.  This was where we spent a hot Saturday afternoon exploring the aquatic life. The ticket price of $38.95 per person is steep, but it includes access to a dolphin show, 4D movie, and many other exhibitions. Continue reading

This past June, Fausto went to the annual Society of Actuaries Health meeting in Atlanta and I tagged along.  While there, I had a chance to explore the city’s small but growing street art scene. Atlanta has hosted the annual street art conference called Living Walls, The City Speaks, where artists from all over the world are invited to create street art.  The large murals are often painted directly on the side of the buildings throughout the city, with permission from the owners of course.

Photo of the Week: Underwater

2015-06-14 (2)Atlanta, Georgia

This week, we happened to be in Atlanta for a work conference and decided to visit the famous Georgia Aquarium.  It is one of the largest aquariums in the world, with a 6.3 MILLION gallon tank, housing whale sharks and manta rays amongst hundreds of other species of fish.  If you are so inclined, you can even go scuba diving in the tank and get really close and personal with the sharks. The general admission of $40 per person was a bit steep, but the experience was well worth the price.
