Street Art: Downtown Atlanta

I love this piece of street art, spotted downtown, near Skyview Atlanta.

Perfectly encapsulating the fun of child’s play.

It reminds me of my childhood, when the simplest things would be so fun, just climbing trees and riding bikes and eating crab apples and making up stories and playing with bugs and reading books by the lake. I really hope that current generations are enjoying childhood like that.

And just to scare the children, let’s look at this ginormous alligator not far down the road:

This hulking piece spans the entire side of a building, on the formerly Star Hotel:

My fave part is that the tail goes up the fire escape.

Fun fact about fire escapes: apparently Atlanta has very few of them. When I went on a tour of movie locations, the guide mentioned that filming scenes that include fire escapes in Atlanta is difficult because ATLwood has so few. Fun little tidbit. Very fun street art.
