Zoo Atlanta, 2016

Georgia Aquarium, Winter 2015

After our first visit last year, I promised that we’d come back again. We made good on our promise for a family stroll through the garden, thanks to my company that opted to have a holiday get-together nearby with ABG as the headline attraction. The only downside was the construction projects going on which took away the children’s garden for […]

Jones Bridge Park, 2015

Just before Thanksgiving we took a family vacation up to Asheville, NC to visit the Biltmore Estate for one of their holiday lights tour. This was our first trip to the area, and covered a few scenic stops along the way at various waterfalls. The house itself was spectacular, both in architectural and decorative aspects. On this trip I also […]

Asheville-Biltmore, 2015

The weather was absolutely spectacular for walking around the city, as well as the surrounding areas: Tybee Island, the Wormsloe Historic Site, and Bonaventure Cemetery. My favorite shots from this trip were the River Street at night from […]

Savannah, 2015

Despite living in the Atlanta area for over 2 decades I don’t recall visiting the Atlanta Botanical Garden for their annual holiday light display. Now that our daughter is 7 and we’ve done the Lights of Life and Lanier’s Magical Nights of Lights, we thought it was time to try something new.

ABG Holiday Lights, 2014

I love this park near Lawrenceville, mainly because it’s such a quaint little piece of history amid all the strip malls and civilization. We took a quick family trip at the end of the peak leaf season, and despite missing a good bit of the true leaves of fall it was still a good chance to get out and enjoy […]
