Post and Photography by Lauren Bohn

Hey Midtown, you have until March 30th to check out Red Bull Illume in Piedmont Park.  What is it?  Glad you asked.  Illume is an international photography contest dedicated to action and adventure sports shots.  28,257 photographs were submitted by photographers from 124 countries.  The top 50 have been chosen and are on show now in light boxes at Piedmont Park.  They are illuminated at sunset, creating the perfect nighttime photography stroll.  Go and see—it’s free!—but you’d better get a move on: Atlanta is the fourth stop of this world tour which is only here through next weekend.  Take a look at some shots we took of Thursday’s Kickoff Event. Read More »

Donning bright green attire, at the parade route.
Each found a spot along Peachtree with care,
For standing or sitting in a folding chair. Read More »
