The Olympic Spirit! Atlanta, 1996

 

--------------------------------------------------

It was hot, humid and overall sticky weather during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Locals weren't surprised by this late July weather but I'm sure a lot of visitors didn't expect it. After I used one of the pleasing, yet infrequent cooling mists outside the stadiums I could only observe the lively spectators trying to cool down under the misty spray in the late afternoon Georgia sun. This spot was in-between the Olympic stadium (now Turner Field) and the old Fulton-County Stadium.
