I have just wrapped up a busy two-week vacation. We never left the state, but there was plenty here to do. The first week was divided between going to exhibits and events for the National Black Arts Festival, and taking my kids to their chosen day camps.
This past weekend, I spent quite a bit of time in the city, more than I usually do if I'm not working. I wanted to do some street photography. I even managed to talk my husband into coming with me. We headed out to a festival called Atlanta Streets Alive. On the way, we ran across another event called Rock and Ride.
A little more than a week ago, I got a chance to hear a private concert at a friend's apartment. Lee MacDougall is a British singer/songwriter who's doing a 30 day U.S. I've gone to hear friends play at small clubs before, but I'd never been to see an artist I didn't know is such a small setting. My friend Shanna knows the singer's publicist/manager through work. They arranged this concert in her loft when they stopped in Atlanta, on their way to Nashville.
