Description

This is the Krog Viaduct in Cabbage Town, Atlanta. There's tons of graffiti all around. Normally the cars go fairly slow inside the viaduct, because it's so dark. But this particular driver had a scare upon entering the viaduct and had the pedal to the metal. Check the comment page to see what scared the poor fella so much.

Taken on the last day of the ATL BP shoot.

F4, 1/2 sec, ISO 400, 24mm focal length.
