The Sidebar

Because of the lack of social cohesion in many cities of the United States, many historic districts are still left out of the urban revitalization movement that have benefited places like Durham, North Carolina, where I was living before coming to Atlanta a couple of years ago. Too often, “there is the city and there is where people live”, like my daughter says. The Sidebar is the lights that are still on after the old business district in downtown Atlanta has been abandoned after business hours. Plus, you can get a pitcher of Genesee Cream Ale for $8.

These pictures were taken with no tripod so aperture speed was constrained to minimize camera shake.
