I Heart Faces Photowalk – Atlanta

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to grab a spot in the I heart faces photography  Photo Walk. This was the first year the event was held with 20 cities participating. I am a huge fan of I heart faces  and I joined as a member earlier this year. The I heart faces group has been a wonderful resource for all things photography. The members are so helpful in answering questions and there are so many tips and techniques that are shared.

The Atlanta walk was held in Oakland Cemetery. I have lived in Atlanta for 15 years and this was my first visit. Oakland Cemetery is the oldest cemetery, as well as one greenest spaces in Atlanta, Georgia. It was founded as “Atlanta Cemetery” in 1850 on six acres  of land southeast of the city. The cemetery was renamed in 1872 to reflect the large number of oak and magnolia trees growing in the area. It is truly a beautiful last resting place.

I was happy to meet our group leaders Dawn Camp and Mishelle Lane. They both were so kind and very helpful in answering questions and sharing information to help those who have jumped into the Digital Camera world. Go Canon! They both are bloggers so scoot over to My Home Sweet Home and Secret Agent Mama and check out their amazing photography skills. You will be inspired for sure!

Here are the images I collected on our Photo Walk.  I had a such a great time and I look forward to next year when I hope we get to do it all over again!

Guess who I found?!

That’s me down there! Thanks to Mishelle for the photo!

  1. As always, you have such beautiful pictures. The colors are so vibrant. The sleeping lion blows me away.

    I laughed about Waldo. Too funny! Keep sharing your pictures! You are quite talented!

    Hope you are having a great summer!

  2. Great shots! I love old head stones….creepy but true. I was just in my hometown this past weekend and visited my grandmother’s grave which is in a very old rural cemetery. My mom and aunt were looking at me like I was crazy taking pics of the worn headstones of unknown people. But they are amazing! Great job!
