Hybrid, I really like that last shot of Tower Place in particular. While I'm not crazy about glass towers, in my opinion, the building holds its own pretty well even after 30 years of competition.

Of course, among buildings of that era, I'm a shameless booster for the Equitable Building. In 1975 I got one of my first real jobs working there. Perched up at the top of 100 Peachtree Street, we had one of the most amazing views I'd ever seen. Sometimes I would work late just to wander around after hours and gaze out the windows.

:lol:

GaTechGuy, I love your pics of the Westin. Definitely some of the best I've ever seen.

Andrea, that's a great pic of one of my favorite Atlanta buildings (and my favorite box).

HybridONE, I'd have to say my favorite of your pics was the one of the GA Capitol. it looks a little like a post card!

Here's my entry for the day.

This pic that I took isn't my personal favorite of the ones I have taken (that honor would go to This one), but maybe you'll enjoy it.

IC, I keep coming back to your shot of the SunTrust Building -- terrific photo! Where were you when took this? I also think the architects who designed this building must have been Lego fanatics as kids.

I was somewhere in the middle of Centennial Olympic Park. I just can't remember what part of it, though.

Cool aquarium shot, IC. I knew that there was a mural painted in front of the aquarium and future coke museum but I never knew what it looked like.

I don't have any personal pics but I think it looks great! I'm so glad this building was saved. I found these online though. It looks better than this first pic now that its done.

I saw an article in the ajc that atop the Glenn Hotel lies a rooftop restaurant. I always wondered what happens when it rains.

Does anyone here know?

Nice shot IC. I'm finally getting out and trying to make an effort to check out some of the other southern states I don't frequent very often. Especially the picture topics. Nice work guys, I'll have to stop by here more often.

Nice picture, I miss the Macy's. :(

I miss Rich's!

Anyways, here is a pic for today:

Street In Fairlie-Poplar

Apparently I forgot to post this one in my Fairlie Poplar photo thread.

NOTE: Look down the street in this picture. You can see a crowd of people in and along the street in the distance!

And don't forget to check out my newly posted Savannah (at night) photos in the Georgia forum! :)
