Atlanta Dogwood Festival (last week Sat Apr 16th)

:) my braces. ever since they added stoppers, I feel weird smiling, so practiced today

I blame my fixed lens for these crop shots!! the beauty of no zoom.

Joe invited me to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. I've been here 10 years, heard about it, never been, and I had no clue what it was about. Surprisingly the traffic wasn't bad & we didn't have to use MARTA (bus / train).

that's Joe.
Top left: where we found a parking spot. Bottom pic : lol I felt like a tourist taking this picture.

It was pretty cool. People sold all sorts of art, there was food, saw a bunch of photographers, listened to music, i avoided sitting on the grass. I realized I haven't been outside in...... I don't remember. I've never been to the back, and the only time I'm outside is when I'm getting into a car or leaving to enter a buildong, or in the evening out partying. I miss outside!! this made me want to go to the park and do something creative with my laptop. I can't take my windows pc cause this old bugger it dies instantly on it's battery supply, and my glossy MAC has so much glare that I'll have to hide from the sun, or pretend it's a mirror.

So these are the pictures. took about 100, lol so I collaged them here:

he called it a healing instrument. I was a bit to paranoid to feel the vibrations

1. Golf cart  2. vibrant porta potty. 3. Silk almond tasted great, and the coconut was ok. 4. I LOVED this house

I took a video, but I'm not sure how to open CPI or AVDHD files, and ive got an exam to take today, so I've given up & ll figure it out another day.

after the festival went to Doc Green's to eat :). I got the same thing Cheesy Tortilla Soup (bowl this time) with California Chicken something, and he got Chili & a turkey panini

That's all folks. Now you know what the dogwood festival looks like. PS: and to get the badass shirt the guy had above, you have to volunteer trust me I found out, that only volunteers get that shirt. & Thanks me from saving you from viewing 100 pictures, lol i've improved (^_^)

GOSH i don't want to take this exam, ugh!

Love Bombchell.
