High Wire Act

I was PWD - photographing while driving - trying to get a good shot of the moon. I just realized that it looks like the Moon is walking/rolling on a high wire.

Douceur de France

Nothing but goodness inside. The Marietta store is at the corner of Glover Street and Atlanta Road. There is a new store in Roswell at 1173 Alpharetta Street.

Ca-Ca-Ca Cake!

This is half of the dessert display at the Marietta Diner. The other half is around the corner on the other side of the register with all kinds of pies and cheesecake. Emma, Daisha, Alaysha, and I shared a slice of California Cheesecake, which is a delicious cake with cheesecake in the middle. Perfect. On our next visit, Emma and I plan to have the 7 Kinds of Chocolate cake, although I don't know if I can wait for our next visit to try it.

Harry's Whole Foods Market

The Good thing and the Bad thing about Harry's is the Same thing - it's less than two minutes from my house.

Square Pizza

The Marietta Pizza Company is a great place for pizza and people watching. I haven't eaten there yet, but it looks like I'm going to have to. There's probably a good reason it's always crowded.

You really have to get yourself some SweeTreats. They start with a vanilla or chocolate base (ice cream or frozen yogurt). You get one flavor free, and you can add whatever other flavor(s) you want. I chose vanilla with Very Berries, which is all the berries. It was so good I couldn't walk and eat at the same time. I picked up one of those buy-ten-get-one-free cards because I am definitely going back for more.

It's Hip To Be In The Square

These gentlemen have the right idea about what to do on a beautiful day. I saw them relaxing in Glover Park on The Square. A few hours later as I was on my way home, they were still there enjoying the day.

I used this picture for a WordPress theme post on Boundaries. The sign is near the corner of Whitlock and North Marietta Parkway.

PWD - Photographing While Driving

Not the smartest thing to do, but I was trying to get a clear shot of the Moon. This was the best of all the shots I took.

I've run out of pictures for MDP, so I have to get out for a while tomorrow and see if I can find something worth posting. Any suggestions?

Square Geometry

Is there a geometric term for half the side of a square? This is half of North Park Square, on The Square.

Give Me the Night Light

Marietta Power on the case on Cobb Parkway. I saw their truck on my way to pick up some Chinese food for dinner, and on my way home [lucky for me] I caught them just as they finished.

Let the Sunshine In

It was the perfect day to clean the windows so Shillings' customers could 
get in some people watching on The Square.

Marietta Trolley Company

Marietta's Trolley, Uncle Ruban, went into service in July 1905. Passengers boarded the trolley at the courthouse for the trip to Atlanta. The trolley made several stops on the way, and the trip ended at 
Georgia Power on Forsyth Street.

Today the trolley takes passengers on one-hour narrated tours 
of historic Marietta.
