Krog Street Tunnel, Atlanta

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos
I shot this during the Atlanta flood. I chanced upon a couple canoeing through the most famous tunnel in Atlanta, the Krog Street Tunnel. I was out with my friend to go see another area that was flooded when we came across this and both of us screamed with delight.
I borrowed my friend's polka dot galoshes, but at this point in the tunnel the water was well above them.
This was a matter of being in the right place at the right time for an unforgettable shot of a completely unique event.
