May in Wisconsin is synonymous with a massive Mayfly emergence. They were EVERYWHERE! Folks ran from car to building, flapping arms and hands the whole way. When taking this photo, I was focused on the dock, and had no idea how many insects were in the image until I got home.

 The Candler Building in Atlanta, Georgia, built in 1906 by Coca-Cola magnate and former Mayor Asa Griggs Candler, draws upon the Beaux-Arts style which draws upon the principles of French neoclassicism and incorporates Gothic and Renaissance elements. To learn more about this historic building, now a beautifully renovated hotel, please see my personal blog post.
