Atlanta Botanical Garden
Date : 17-Nov-2007
After a long hiatus from blogging, I am back. I am sure no one really missed them. We all can do with a little less of gyan, I believe.
Armed with a weekend to spend, and a camera to shoot, me and my friend set off with our families to Atlanta's Botanical garden (www.atlantabotanicalgarden.org). Thanks to the fall season, we got to see some amazing colors on trees. And inside the botanical garden's indoor areas, we saw some awesome flowers. (Check out some nice macro shots of those flowers at: http://picasaweb.google.com/prabhu.ajay/VibrantFlowers.) It was amazing to see how they had managed to set up complete ecosystems inside the huge glass buildings.
There isn't much to write, so I will just let these pictures be my memories for the evening.

A frog's scultpure. There were quite a few of those at the garden.

Flowers! Lots of them...

Somehow, this looks like few birds 'hanging out' on a branch!!!
