    To the Beat of His Own Drum


    The world is filled with many wonders, yet, there are only a few, that have been deemed as "magnificent". Baton Bob, a man who parades the sidewalks in Atlanta, Georgia, from downtown to midtown, and all surrounding areas, is absolutely a moniker of magnificence, marching to the beat of his drum. At first sight, he appears as a man with a fetish for women's attire; a drum major's onesie, bedroom lingerie, a Dorothy Hamill ice skating outfit, the Saturday night special which includes form fitting, gold lame sequined shorts, with a matching midriff bandeau-the final accessory to any costume that he adorns, is a baton. With imagination and brevity, he marches down the sidewalks of Atlanta's busiest streets, twirling a baton and making magic along the way. There are some who find it strange and even "crazy" that a man would pummel the streets dressed like a woman, twirling a baton as if he were the soloist in a parade. Don't be confused-Baton Bob is the parade. I capture a 42 second moment of Baton Bob in Midtown Atlanta. In the last 15 seconds, Baton Bob's antics, are met with my words, and the rest of what you see is pure magic.
