Atlanta Photo of the Day

Recommended Posts


IC, thanks! It's really a pretty terrible photograph but I was playing golf at Chastain and thought the view was sort of interesting.

:P

Wow. Looks like it's been awhile since new pics got loaded here...

Atlanta has been invaded by foreign elements and it's set up camp again. There were still some flurries in the air, so pardon the extra fuzz...

^ The year I head down to Statesboro is the year the Atlanta area finally gets hit with snow again. I'm jealous :angry:

Anyways, nice work, Hybrid. It's nice to see some snow up there again.

^It pretty much feels like Spring down here in Statesboro! It's 84 degrees right now!

Great picture, Martinman. The area around Grant Park really is beautiful, especially in the Springtime (as is the rest of Atlanta).

....drool - I miss those greasy scrambled eggs from the Majestic. So, Plaza is still doing the Rocky Horror Friday nights? None of those pictures they are showing look very artsy, the Plaza doesn't specialize in art films anymore, but only discount pictures?

Anyways - thanks for taking pictures of one of my beloved street corners!

No independent art houses left in Atlanta anymore. George LeFont sold the Plaza to independent operators in summer 2006 and closed Garden Hills Cinema a couple of months later when his lease there expired. Eight-screen Landmark Midtown in the Midtown Promenade (it was a UA previously IIRC) uses a couple of screens for indie films, but shows first-run major studio releases on the rest. The Starlight Drive-In still survives however for a unique (and cheap!) movie-going experience (first run).

A shot of the Atlanta skyline from I-85 south:

I've got a whole bunch of other Atlanta photos to post in the future, as well! :thumbsup:

^I'm looking forward to it, NCB. I've been very impressed by your work so far. Nice shot of the skyline there. I assume you were driving at the time.

I went into Atlanta today myself to try out my new camera. Hopefully, I'll be able to post them soon. However, I leave to go back to college tomorrow (I'm spending the weekend at home), and Georgia Southern's server doesn't allow me to upload to Flickr for some reason, so it may be a while before I can post them.

Another shot of the Atlanta skyline, this one coming from the southern end of the Downtown Connector:

Great photos of Atlanta's skyline from the interstate, you two (whaddya know, they are good for something after all ;) ). It makes me wish I was back home rather than stuck in Statesboro (no offense intended to my fellow Statesboro forumers ;) ).

Keep the great pics a-coming!

Here are some highway photos (for you interstate geeks like me) I left out of my 'Trip to Atlanta' thread:

GA 316/I-85 interchange:

Great stuff, JerseyBoy! It looks like we took many pictures in the same areas. Whenever I go through cities like Atlanta or Houston, I turn into a bit of an "interchange/look how wide that interstate is!" geek myself. :lol:

As for my photo from below the I-20 interchange, I call that nothing more than luck. I literally just held the camera around the seat, held the shutter to get a shot through the back window, and hoped for the best. After a little cropping and rotating, I managed to come out with a shot that wasn't half bad.

Great work of the skyline and the interstate, you guys!

NCB, I impressed with that photo you posted, especially after hearing the story behind it.

JerseyBoy, I really like that last picture you posted.

There's still quite a bit of our city's history tucked away. I was walking through the neighborhood the other day and snapped a photo of this old stone house from days gone by. The hundreds of thousands zooming across the GA 400 bridge in the background would not notice it.

Here's a photo of 191 Peachtree using my new 8 megapixel Sony DSC-H7 that I got for Christmas:

I've been pretty impressed with how this new camera works compared to my old Kodak one.
