Goat Farm Arts Center Factory Falling Down

Continuing the Exploration

In my previous post, Exploring the Backside of the Tracks, I talked about my finding a specific photo location near some Atlanta westside railroad tracks.

The Book of Questions

Back in the ’80’s, when I was yet a young sapling, The Book of Questions was on the NYTimes Best Selling list, and I bought it. It was, in some ways, a coming of age experience at a time in my life when I was beginning to more closely re-examine everything I had been taught […]
