Circle [Photo Hunt]


@ mirandablue
The "Gateway of Dreams" sculpture at the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta.  This sculpture pays homage to the founder of the modern Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin, and to the ideals of the game.  One of the features of the monument is the Olympic rings---five interlocking circles that represent the of union five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.  This photo was taken in August 2009 during my short visit in Atlanta.

Wishing you and yours happy holidays!
