People Watching at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta

As a rule, I'm not much of a street photographer, or photographer of people. First of all, I'm a little too timid for it. Additionally, it's not something you see much of in Birmingham, so people seem wary of having their photo taken by strangers on the street. But Atlanta is a whole different animal. Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park is a hotbed of activity for tourists and homeless folks alike.

So Sunday morning, I set out from the hotel to walk around with my new (well, new to me) Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L lens, attached to my Canon Rebel T2i. With this lens being an equivalent of about 170mm on an APS-C sensor camera, it gave me a lot of working distance when photographing folks candidly, like this family here enjoying a moment together by the Olympic ring fountains or the fellow below dozing gently.
