I was excited to see your “Good Photos” request. I have a ton that relate to great things happening in College Park.

This is from the Main Street Academy, located in College Park.

It is from the Holiday Music Program – held December 14, 2012 – at the Main Street Academy, College Park's proud public charter school.

The bandleader is one of TMSA's music teachers, Jerry Chapman.

Big fans of this Creative Loafing project. Let's focus on the good stuff.

I have lived in East Lake since 1998.

One of my favorite things happening here is the Neighbor in Need program (www.neighborinneed.org).

Neighbors volunteer and assist local contractors with emergency home repairs for the low-income elderly in the neighborhood.

For the past three years, we have helped raise funds by hosting a Neighbor in Need Photo Auction and BBQ sale at our East Lake Farmers Market (http://elfmarket.org/).

Many friends and colleagues who live in and around the East Lake area donate their art each year for this worthy cause; even Community BBQ donated its profits!

I'm proud of this community.

I live in Jefferson Park (East Point) and really enjoy capturing the moments that make our neighborhood and people so special. I've attached a few photos from Destination East Point in which the Imperial OPA Circus performed.

Despite the unfortunate negative perception of SW Atlanta by the media and the general public, we are a very vibrant and diverse community.

It's hard to pick a single thing I love about my neighborhood. We have wonderful events, rich history, the Beltline, a fantastic charter school, a youth program, a developing neighborhood commercial district with friendly business owners, and much more. However, one shining star from 2012 occurred when the community pulled together and built a small pocket park on a lot where a dilapidated house was demolished. The park is special for me because it really shows neighbors can join together and make positive change at the grassroots level.

This photo features youth from the Whitefoord Intel Computer Clubhouse after-school program standing in front of one of the Living Walls murals located at the underpass in the Kirkwood Community.

These youth were there shooting a music video about their community that is a part of the Adobe Youth Voices program.

The video features youth and seniors from the community. The song was also written and produced by the seniors and youth.

The Sweet Auburn Curb Market is a good thing that's happening in my neighborhood. It brings everyone together for good, affordable food, and it gives opportunities for local business owners and farmers to sell their products. If I had anything to do with it, there would be a curb market in every neighborhood in Atlanta.

These photographs were taken on Jackson and Todd streets, February 15.

They were planting trees as part of the Trees Atlanta program. Cooper Starr was leading a team of folks planting trees along the side of the road, a truck load of kids were on board to help!

Very proud of the neighborhood and community for rejuvenating a part of the city that was thought to be forgotten.

Amazing how a little art can bring a sense of belonging and pride to the community.

This photo is of our neighborhood in East Point. My partner and our home looking outside. We were preparing for a potluck for gay men in our neighborhood. We have many events such as these in our neighborhood, both gay, straight, and gay and straight. My partner is Latino and I am white, we have Jews, Buddhists, Christians, and Hindus in our neighborhood. Also, we have many different races and people of mixed races as well as people in mixed relationships: African-American and white, white and Filipino.

Every year the city of Decatur has a one-mile fun run (also a 5k) called Tour Decatur.

Six weeks before the race, the city schools of Decatur have a track club that any of the children can join.

It's held together with parents and teachers. As you can see in the photos, these first graders really are enjoying it.

I love living in Castleberry Hill. It's arty but not overexposed. Neighbors are great, and we are close to everything interesting.

The picture is a mural on Walker Street. I believe it was painted as a part of Flux, a yearly arts festival. It's self-explanatory and always makes me smile.

Jefferson Park is known for our huge Halloween celebration on Bryan Avenue (my street). This past year we had more than 1,800 kids, with candy donated from the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association (www.jeffersonpark.org) and our wonderful neighbors.

The Hapeville Public Arts projects are initiatives of the Hapeville Main Street Board and the Hapeville Association of Tourism and Trade. The murals are intended to create a lasting visual impact in downtown, a symbol of the city's commitment to downtown revitalization and to a culturally rich community.

Artist Shannon Lake is currently painting the Hapeville Arts Mural that was commissioned by the Hapeville Association of Tourism and Trade, in partnership with the Main Street Program. The mural design depicts a collage of details from numerous noted works of art throughout the ages.

In August 2012, the Hapeville Arts Mural began, and you may have noticed the glance of "Mona Lisa" by Italian master Leonardo da Vinci looking down on South Central Avenue. Several other noted pairs of eyes of other famous works of art by masters such as Lichtenstein, Magritte, and Gauguin now have downtown Hapeville within their sights! The project is well into Phase II of its installation.

The artist, Shannon Lake, from Griffin, Ga., can be seen painting by day and night high above South Central Avenue, Hapeville, on the rear of the 500 block, just opposite Memorial Garden.

Dunaire is a beautiful metro Atlanta neighborhood, tucked away in a small forest, just off Memorial Drive in the heart of DeKalb County. Our neighborhood is known for friendly neighbors, community spirit, deep diversity, and its peaceful character.

Our part of town was especially hard hit during the economic downturn, but our neighborhood has not only stood its ground - it thrived!

In the past few years, in the face a city-wide foreclosure crisis, high unemployment, a DeKalb County budget crisis, a DeKalb County school system crisis, and a record hot summer, our neighbors came together, organized, and have made Dunaire an even better place to live than it was five years ago.

We organized a communications committee and put together a Dunaire Neighbors Facebook page and a neighborhood blog (www.DunaireDispatch.com). We built the Dunaire Community Organic Garden to give our neighbors a place to grow vegetables and as a place for neighbors to work together and get to know each other. We organized an annual Dunaire International Fall Festival where neighbors of the many cultures represented in our neighborhood come together to share a good time, some horseback riding, and some great pot-luck food. We refused to listen to complaints that there "just isn't anywhere to eat around here," and organized a very successful monthly event, Dunaire Dines Out, where we all meet up at a very local restaurant to discover new cuisines and support local businesses.

And, to top it all off ... Dunaire is home to one of the biggest and best Christmas displays in all of metro Atlanta, and was recently featured on PBA's "Christmas Around Atlanta" show.

I'm very, very proud of the neighborhood I live in and the hard work that my neighbors have put in to make it such a community. Please find attached a few photos that I think show just some of what's GOOD about my 'hood.
