Photos from Moreland Avenue and other news

Today's postcard was shot by photographer Daniel A. Echevarria. As he explains it, the image is part of a larger effort to "photograph areas of the city during a time of changing social and community dynamics." This photo was taken on Moreland Avenue.

Echevarria is the co-founder and co-editor of One, One Thousand | A Publication of Southern Photography, which features free contemporary photography created in the Southeastern United States. See more of his images of Atlanta here and here.
