The WeloveATL project

I absolutely love these. There are large collections of #weloveatl photos all over the north platform at the Five Points MARTA station. Currently every wall on the platform has at least one of these displays. What a great way to start your day, waiting for the train while looking at photos of Atlanta!

If you’re unfamiliar with the wonderful WeloveATL project, take a look at their website. The project creators hope that it: “inspires and empowers people in the Atlanta area to come together and share their love of the city through photography and other visual art.”

It works! Do a search for the #weloveatl tag on Tumblr or Twitter or Instagram (among other places) and you’ll see how much it’s been used as an outlet for Atlantans to show their love for the city by tagging their photos with this.

In a city that, for a long time, experienced internet chatter focused on it in a largely negative way for a long time (that’s how it seemed to me, anyway), this is a big boost.

Also be on the lookout for the WeloveATL mobile-gallery truck as it makes appearances at events around town.
