Decatur Beach Party 2009

Today was the city of Decatur’s annual Beach Party.  They bring in a ton of sand and create a beach in the middle of Ponce de Leon and close off the surrounding streets while vendors peddle their wares and bands play.  Seemed like a nice family event.

Originally I called my friend Tyler Goforth, who works at The Dekalb Neighbor, to see if he wanted to go shoot the event with me.  Turned out he was already going to be going to shoot it for his paper so I met up with him and we went around shooting together.  His stuff will be on his website sometime Monday evening he tells me, after the photos have been published by his paper first (they are a weekly).
