Hello Atlanta! This was the October Morning view as we touched down and taxied to our gate yesterday morning.
We pulled into terminal E, and of COURSE – I had to go all the way to Terminal T, the furthest away I could possibly need to go as far as one terminal to another is concerned.
I really like the Atlanta airport…So much to see and do, and a great opportunity for adding some steps to my fit bit.
I had enough time so I decided to hoof it!
There are great exhibits about the incredible history of Altanta though turmoil and triumph, and I could take the time to go slowly, read the exhibits ((I had always been in a hurry before!)) and really take it in.
I traveled from E to D to C to B to A ---and between A and T where I had never been I came across some GORGEOUS statue art. Must have more time. Need more time…
Okay, I am SO Selfie challenged!
When I got to terminal T, I was elated to find that they have a whole Gee’s Bend exhibit! Whoopie! I could get really close and personal – the only problem….quilts under glass are reflective and My photos didn’t turn out great.
The women and their work.
Yeah, that’s me…selfie on the quilt!
Corduroy and quilting texture!
Loved the straight line quilting on this one!
Some were just tops mounted on canvas.
I look at this one and I see letters evolving.
Too much reflection. This one was stunning!
House top variation.
Checking it out…my striped shirt looks like it is part of the quilt in this reflection.
Fun color combos!
this just makes me want to go home and play with strips and strings and let the design evolve!
Photo of quilts on the line!
Love the blues!
((Hating the reflection!))
My favorite of all!
This one was the oldest on display I believe.
Quilts don’t have to be perfect to be perfectly wonderful!
If you find yourself stuck in Atlanta with some time on your hands…don’t take the plane train. Walk the terminal, view the history section! It’s fascinating! And then continue on to the statues and african art, and into terminal T where the Gee’s Bend exhibit is displayed. It was just a wonderful way to spend otherwise boring airport time!
Much love from Texas --
