13209853694_790e1d5e78_bLucky for me I was informed by my in-the-know roommate about the Root City Market that happened on Saturday afternoon over at the adorable Avondale Estates.  It was such a delight perusing around the pop-up artist market checking out locally made goods!  Along with shopping I ran into several familiar faces as well as met a couple new creative thinking friends.  To top things off, even though the forecast called for rain it turned out to be a beautiful day!

Recently purchased the Visual Supply Company Lightroom plug-in and used the images I snapped at this event as an opportunity to practice using the film pack. Love the graininess and mood the films add to the images!  The plug-in was easy to install and even easier to use, I’m very excited with how this will cut down my editing time as well as give my photos a film-like life!

His pop-up shop was great and his online selection is even better!

I knew when I was driving down Ponce on my way home that these canary yellow bushes would make for great picture. So I did what any photographer would do and did a u-turn, put my flashers on and ran to said yellow bushes and snapped till I was satisfied and then returned to my illegally parked car! Worth it!

I love Atlanta for so many reasons and events like this make that love grow stronger. After the market I returned home to lay around and then when I got bored with that hit up my roommate who was porch hanging in Cabbagetown and joined her and her man. We made burgers, sipped beer and had a fire in their backyard pit before heading to Estoria and playing Buck Hunter.  I will say I impressed onlookers with a great shot at first and then slowly started to suck and then competitive me started to get less and less into the game but besides missing imaginary deer-what a day!  Yesterday, Dustin returned to my arms after a weekend of camping and shooting (real) guns with his buddies in Butler, GA.  He told me about their adventures over beermosas and brunch at Midway. A weekend with friends, art and a nap squeezed in-I’m one happy gal!  Hope everyone has a good day back on the grind! xo. FLASHY
