Since moving to the Atlanta area, I had been fascinated by the Sweet Auburn Festivals. It makes me feel good to see independent crafters and business owners out there showcasing their talents as well as the many people who walk through—eating, drinking, listening to music and dancing in the streets.

The photo that makes me particularly happy is the image I made of the three generations of women holding hands—grandma in the middle and what her Tshirt reads, “Obama got Osama” To me, the image represents another historical, generational moment to be celebrated. I wish I knew them, I’d send them the photograph in a frame.

Photojournalistic candids are not my strong point in photography, but I wanted to force myself to capture art as a-day-in-the-life. As a challenge this year, I decided to carry one camera and only one lens and force myself to get the shot I wanted.
