Atlanta Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts

Uh, did anyone notice my pics of the Peachtree Plaza and the Concourse towers? Personally, I don't think the one of the Concourse is that great, but the one I took of the Peachtree Plaza deserves a reward :D .

Okay, now everyone can go back to awing the other pics. Being a man, I just had to stroke my own ego.

I noticed them. I agree the Westin Peachtree shot is really good, makes me miss my old camera (I dropped it when exiting the car back at Carolina :cry: ).

Who knew a skyline could have 5 O'clock shadow?

Is it a illusion?

I'm just saying that the angle makes it look way more dense than it really is. There's a good amount of blocks between a lot of those buildings, but the pictures suggest that it's all conglomerated into one cohesive urban jungle.

IDlover, this is a really cool picture. Thanks for posting it. And Hammett, the picture of the King & the Queen looks great.

I like being able to see Midtown from the sky like that. That view also shows the areas in Midtown where future infill could go and spruce up the skyline.

I love those photos, LizellaJacket! it's so amazing to see the contrasts between now and then. The skyline has grown so much!

Looking from the Southwest over Tech into midtwon in 1968:

Atlanta did a lot in 38 years. I didn't know that the red and white communications tower was 38 years (or more) old!!

And the skyline another 40 years from now will probably make the midtown of today look like a cow pasture!

Oh! one more thing. Atlanta has a looooooooooooot of trees (which I think is a good thing)!

Remind me of that when my allergies go into overdrive this spring. I hear this is the worst place in the nation for allergy sufferers during the season. Guess I won't be jogging along the Chattahoochee or in Piedmont Park until summer.

The best thing about Atlanta, for this country boy at least, is definitely the trees. When I'm out of school, y'all can have the pollution and traffic, just please keep the trees around. It makes it a truly liveable city, instead of a concrete jungle.

I found another shot of the Georiga Aquarium that I took.

Oh >G!

I'll post a couple of pics I have of the Hard Rock cafe later, too. :)

Also, I might be going to Sweet Auburn and the MLK Memorial this weekend, so there might be some pics of that area being posted soon. (keep an eye out for them).
