Tonight, Atlanta United plays in New Jersey for a berth into the MLS Cup Final. This beautiful shot by Jeremiah Prescott (@thejkulani) was taken during their last home playoff game on Sunday, when they defeated the New York Red Bulls 3-0 before a frenzied crowd of 70,016. We are so excited by how this team has brought this city together.
Atlanta, we love the diversity of voices in our city, and we want you all to make your voices heard today. Get to the polls today before 7pm. If you need assistance finding your polling place, you can look it up online at www.mvp.sos.ga.gov Thanks to artist Fabian Williams (@occasionalsuperstar) for this great photo and mural in O4W. #weloveatl
Thanks to @koolestkeith for sharing a great story about this majestic double rainbow that this morning graced the skies of downtown as viewed from the iconic Jackson Street Bridge. Check out his feed for more great shots of the city.
If you’re looking for an amazing celebration of local artistic creation to document, head out to Foward Warrior today and tomorrow, all along Wylie on both sides of the Krog Street Tunnel. Tons of talented artists will be painting murals all weekend. Thanks to artist @michimeko for sharing this shot taken while prepping a wall for a new mural. Be sure to tag your photos #forwardwarrior and #weloveatl. We’ll share our favorite tomorrow!

Well, all it took was us issuing a rain challenge for the sun to come out! But rain is still in the forecast for the weekend, so keep on showing our city’s wetter side. Take inspiration from #weloveatl contributor @thegreatkingace, whose feed is filled with masterful puddle reflections of Atlanta. Pro tip: turn your phone upside down (and if it’s not waterproof hang on tight!) to put the lens as close to the puddle as possible to get the most balanced reflection possible.
This week’s forecast is filled with rain, so we want to invite the #weloveatl community to use the rain as an excuse to get out and explore Atlanta in a new way, like in this classic candid from Jason Travis (@jtrav) that is one of our all time favorite submissions. If your phone isn’t waterproof (many new ones are!) drop it in a ziplock bag and embrace the rainstorms! Post sidewalk splashes, puddle reflections, crazy clouds, wind-whipped umbrellas - anything that celebrates our city in the rain. We’ll post our favorites until the sun shines again. :) Also: please head to the profile on our link to donate to our Power2Give campaign! We have 7 days to unlock matching funds from the city!
