Detours From a Dogwood Festival

Sheryl Crow’s sixth studio album has nothing on the adventure my family and I had today. After driving an hour in downtown Atlanta traffic to attend the 78th Annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival in Piedmont Park, I finally turned into the parking facility only to discover that the parking deck was full, and no other parking was available. So my parents and I decided to hit up Five Guys on Main Street where I ordered two hamburgers. Afterwards, our parking meter still had twenty minutes left (we paid for an hour), so we strolled down Main Street for a while.

Before long, we came across this amazing sculpture of a hydrogen atom!! A fine example of the convergence of arts and science:

And I took some shots of midtown while driving back home:

All in all, an eventful day. 🙂
