ATLANTApix: Olympic Cauldrons

Cauldron on The Olympic Way
Cauldron on The Olympic Way
A portion of The Olympic Way, also known as Capitol Avenue, is lined with alternating colossal cauldrons and towering pylons, rather impressive remnants from the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games hosted by Atlanta.

On the side facing the street, the cauldrons have placards 11-bricks-high with etchings that depict various Olympic sports and are inscribed with "Life Provides Few Grand Moments for Celebrating the Remarkable Range and Pleasure of Human Talent."

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
