And almost gone for the season. This photo of some Nearly Wild floribunda roses was taken back in June of this year. There are still roses around but their time is running out as today is the first day of autumn in this hemisphere. I will miss the roses but I know they will be back next spring. In the meantime I look forward to the leaves changing color.
It’s not from the future, but the unique architecture that is the downtown Atlanta Marriott reminded me of some sci-fi movies I’ve seen where humans live in giant hive like dwellings. It is 50 stories high with around 1,600 rooms plus a cult following of it’s old carpeting.

Marta is the bus and rail service in Atlanta, Georgia. While I did not take a bus (or the streetcars that traveled along some parts of downtown) I did use it to get from the airport to downtown round trip and what a bargain it is! Taxi service from the airport to downtown is a fixed fee, as in many other cities, of about $32.00. A ticket on Marta for two was $7.00. It takes about half an hour from the airport to downtown and once you climb out from the underground you find your way to where you need to be.
The one station we popped in and out of was underground but many stops are above ground platforms. It seemed especially daunting – and deep – going down so I whipped out my phone and took this photo. Mind you, this was after we were about a third of the way down!
