NYC, BABY! My Atlanta Streetcar Photos Made It to Times Square!
Probably the most exciting news (like ever) was hearing that some of my photography of the Atlanta Streetcar would be featured in a video ad that would appear in Times Square on the ABC Supersign! The ad (sponsored by Siemens) ran for 2 weeks in April 2015 and featured 4 of my photographs of the Atlanta Streetcar.
