This is where we live-Woodlawn

By Elisa | 8 Comments »

I recently wrote about Woodlawn, the place where my commute takes me daily.  This Saturday, T Scott and I took a lovely ride to photograph some of the area.  I forgot my camera battery (oops), so only T was able to take photos.  Let’s face it…his are tons better than mine anyway.  I call this Freddy Mercury’s Photo Diary


we found a community garden!

Another beautiful graffiti wall

More freaking awesome graffiti

"We beg you with tears in our eyes to please leave us alone"

I pass this everyday on my commute. Sad.

Where Georgia Road splits, this wall sits.  I love it

    wle-I don’t know what it is about…it is just painted on a fence when you leave Gate City and enter Woodlawn. Behind the fence is an house with old school bus and various remains of cars and whatnot in the yard.
