Pic(k) of the week: Krog Street swatch

Krog Street swatch

Festooned with street art and graffiti, the Krog Street Tunnel passes under Hulsey Yard —a major urban railyard for CSX in Atlanta, Georgia. Connecting the city's Cabbagetown neighborhood, on the south, and the Inman Park district, on the north, the tunnel was added to Atlanta's circumscribing park-trail, the BeltLine, in 2017.

In Atlanta, everybody and her sister seem to take photos and videos with the tunnel as backdrop: wannabe music videographers and models, promsters, and maybe even Donald Glover.

Who is YFGF to demur? So, today, here is my requisite photo of the Krog Street Tunnel —that I took in the tunnel— created with a time-lapse shot, on 27 February 2018.

  • The BeltLine is a former railway corridor around the core of Atlanta, Georgia, under development in stages as a multi-use trail. The plan for the BeltLine was developed in 1999 as a masters thesis by Ryan Gravel, a Georgia Tech student. In 2016, he resigned from the board of the project's developer, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, concerned by the dearth of equitable development and affordable housing around the trail, two of the original goals of the project.

  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of photos taken (or noted) by me, posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always (as is the case today), with a good fermentable as the subject.
