I've had my current job for fourteen and a half years.
It doesn't feel like that long.
Now, I live less than 5 miles from my job. This has been GREAT over the years because I don't put much mileage on my cars. I might drive around 7000 miles a year... on both cars total.
This is what's interesting, though. I, after all this time, have found a new shortcut home. After all this time.
Now I have about 5 ways to get home. But it helps to find this way, and I may get home a couple of minutes faster than usual. And that's a good thing.
I basically drive through the "touristy" areas. I guess a lot off people don't like driving that way, since it is through the heart of downtown.
I tend to take pictures if I'm sitting at a stop light. Why? Because I see some things... some not so interesting, and some very interesting.
Here's the Fox Theater.
There was no concert that night. But when there is, the traffic is HORRIBLE. Ugh.
Hard Rock Cafe!
I'm not sure what the building is with the "200" on it. I just know I've never seen it before.
The Westin Hotel!
I had lunch at the rotating restaurant at the top of the hotel a couple of years ago. We could see the whole city from there. We could even see Stone Mountain.
There's the Ferris Wheel.
Now, I have to drive through a suspect area. I think everyone thinks it is suspect, as there is NO traffic up through there.
There's a place to buy gold teeth.
Once you get your gold teeth, you can get a tattoo right next door.
Now this is funny. This guy here in front of me was BLASTING some music. Just blasting it all loud.
All the way down Peachtree.
Oh my. Patriotic.
Or something like that.
It was enough to make me turn down my radio and listen intently. And it was enough to make me be happy I found a new way home.
So that's my photo journal of the new way home. I think the only way I can get home faster now is by helicopter. And if I do that, I would assume I would have enough money where I wouldn't have to work every day, lol. That would be awesome!
