American Sign Language: "Atlanta"

Touch the thumb of your right "A" hand to the left half of your chest, then move it to the right side.  The thumb doesn't drag along your chest. It touches at the beginning of the sign then at the end.  Also it doesn't even need to touch. You can just bring the hand near the chest as if you were going to touch it. If I'm signing slow and carefully, I make contact, if I'm signing quickly and casually I don't make contact.




Here is Byron showing that you may see the sign Atlanta starting on the right and moving to the left. 

ATLANTA (Version 2)
