Art (and Love) on Atlanta's Beltline

The mural in these photos is part of the largest temporary public art exhibition in the City of Atlanta. When I first saw it, I knew that I wanted to shoot a couple near it. 

The couple would have to be cute, quirky, funny, down to earth, and with a great sense of humor for this to work. When Shawnta and Brandon came along (thanks to google for helping them find me), I knew they would be the perfect couple. 

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine invites residents and visitors to explore new segments of the Atlanta BeltLine that are lined with unique temporary public art installations. 

The public art initiative selected new and returning artists to showcase dynamic installations and performances on the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, an emerging system of parks, trails, transit and development that reclaims a 22-mile loop of historic and mostly unused rail around the City’s core.  

This mural, The BELTLINE BEARS, was created by Kyle Brooks.  See more of his work at www.blackcattips.com
